Ginger Pye by Eleanor Estes
Reviewed by Leila
Ginger Pye is about a boy and his sister who want to get a dog. They have to earn a dollar dusting pews in order to get the dog but it turns out that another boy wants that same exact dog. After the boy and his sister get the dog, they start hearing a person follow them and they think it is because someone is trying to steal Ginger (the dog). They start calling this person the "unsavory character" and try to find out who it is, who is trying to steal their dog. But then on Thanksgiving, Ginger disappears and everyone is on the look-out for him.
I liked this book because it was full of mystery and suspense and I like those types of books because you can't stop reading them. Another thing that stood out for me was the Pye family. The mother was the youngest mother in town, the father the most famous bird man, and Ginger the most famous dog. It's funny how the children's uncle is only three years old.
This was a great book and I hope you will read it.
