When Jan and Sarah learn that Patch, their beloved dog friend, has been lost, they decide to become detectives and set out to find him. First they have to find Patch's new owners. They live a long way from the pet store where the girls first met Patch. Being detectives is hard work but the girls are determined to find Patch. They set off on the trail looking for clues and asking questions searching for their favourite puppy.

The style of this book is very modern and kids would relate easily to the characters. I would recommend other books in this first novels series.
