Dawn and the Disappearing Dogs

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Dawn and the Disappearing Dogs is the Baby-Sitters Club Mystery #7. Ann M. Martin is the author. The Baby-Sitters Club members are back. The Baby-Sitters club is a group of girls and a guy who baby-sit in the fictional town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut.

The Baby-Sitters club members not only baby-sit human children, but humans' animals, too. In this Baby-Sitters Club Mystery #7, Dawn Schafer baby-sits a Stoneybrook family's animals. And, they have quite a collection of animals: dogs, turtle, snake, cats and parrots. Dawn takes one of the dogs outside. The baby-sitter clips a dog to a stake in the front yard. Unfortunately, on Dawn’s return, the family’s Great Dane, Cheryl, is missing.

The mystery of Cheryl’s disappearance is compounded, after Dawn reads the local newspaper. Dogs are disappearing from Stoneybrook homes. Also, they are missing from the neighboring towns. Dawn smells a mystery.

Dawn Schafer notices a green car. It slows when she walks a dog. Later, she sees the same car cruising near other dogs. Does the green car have something to do with the disappearing dogs? At the next Baby-Sitters club, Dawn discusses her observations with the other club members. They decide to search for the green car and get the car license. They are successful! The police officer tells the girls that the car belongs to one of the town’s richest men. At that point, the officer politely requests the girls to go home.

The police officer deters neither Dawn, nor the other baby-sitters. They continue their investigations into the dog disappearances and visit the local pet shop. They observe pets at the local park. Afternoons, after school, they are on their bikes looking for clues.

Ann M. Martin writes a very satisfying early reader chapter book. The Baby-Sitters Club Mystery's conclusion is not sappy. Modern girls between eight and twelve-years-old will enjoy The Baby-Sitters Club Mystery #7, Dawn and the Disappearing Dogs. I will not reveal the ending and spoil the fun.
