Illustrated children's book
Review by Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite
"Basset hounds are supposed to be good at finding things and people, right? Young Jack likes to play hide and seek with his basset hound, Sam. While Dad's working on his car in the garage and Mom's busy in the kitchen with his baby sister, Molly, Jack tells Sam to wait in his room while he goes to hide. He knows the perfect place and he knows that Sam will never find him. It's a small closet under the stairs, a storage space. It's dark, dusty, and Jack's never hidden there before. So he knows he'll confuse poor Sam. What he doesn't know is that in the process he'll upset his parents who think they've lost him forever. And Sam? Well, he's a dog with super powers that are supposed to help him solve problems and protect his family. Only his super powers seem to get him into more trouble than be of any help.
Author Monty J. McClaine's early chapter book, Hide and Panic Stations:
Super Speed Sam Book 1, is a clever and humorous story that will delight both young and older readers. This mystery takes young readers through simple exercises in sleuthing that will sharpen their own skills in deductive reasoning. There's lots of drama as the characters search high and low for a little boy who is really only lost in the comic book that he's reading. And what a great place to be lost: in a book. That in itself is a great lesson for young readers: the power of the written word to captivate. This is a fun and educational read."
