More About Darrel Odgers & Sally Odgers
Darrel and Sally Odgers were both born in Tasmania in 1957, and have been married since 1979. They have two grown up children, James and Tegan. Their first book together was published in the 1990s. The Jack Russell series is their most successful collaboration so far, and they thank their inspiration, Ace, for that: " She was lively, opinionated, busy, and always curious. She loved swimming, and playing ball games of her own invention. We were out walking one day and Ace, as usual, was sticking her nose into everything. "She's a real detective,"said Darrel. We spent the rest of the walk planning the adventures of a dog detective! When we wrote up the proposal for the series, we had Ace sign it with a paw print, for luck. It must have worked, because the Jack Russell: Dog Detective series has grown to eight books, with more to come."

Cute and fun read for kids Jun 18, 2008
In Dog Den Mystery, we meet Jack Russell who, along with his owner Sarge, is making a move to Doggeroo. It is not long before trouble begins, in the form of a missing treasured squeaker bone and blanket. Jack Russell realizes that he is the only one that can solve the crime and regain is stolen goods. Though simplistic, this is a fun book and appears as though it will be a fun series. With the point of view being from Jack Russell, it is easy for the reader to view the story head on. Though I cannot say that I enjoyed the story overly well, by 6 year old daughter loved it and that is the entire purpose. Overall, it was cute and a quick read, with a few simplistic pencil drawings throughout. We will be adding the second book of the series to our library fairly soon.
Wishbone he isn't but quite an enjoyable read for my 6 year old! Jan 16, 2008
Purchased this for my daughter thinking it was going to be a Wishbone history mystery made for a younger audience. She really likes the puppy place books, but says this series is "Way better, Mom-it's awesome!" There are no history lessons to be learned, but the dog Jack as protagonist and narrator has a good sense of humor. She especially liked when he tells the stray dog to "Let himself be captured" by a woman who wants to give him a new home. I would recommend this to anyone who has a child that loves dogs and mysteries. The book is not so long that a six-seven year old would lose interest, and not so dumbed down that the plot is obvious.
