When he decides to visit his cousin George, Mr. Beagle is not looking for a new mystery to solve—but he finds one none the less. Books have been going missing in the neighbourhood, and not just any books...storybooks. Of course, Mr. Beagle's keen nose and sharp eyes help him find the answer. In this delightful picture book, Lori Doody has her quirky canine sleuth solve a new puzzle and celebrates the importance of stories in the lives of us all.
