This book turned out to be a perfect choice for my four-year-old grandson. I had to read it aloud multiple times as he discovered the clues in the engaging illustrations. I’m planning to get him more in the series.

Kayla has made some peanut butter treats for a friends new puppy. When they disappear she looks at king as the culprit, but his breath doesn't smell like peanut butter. The only answer is there is an intruder in the house.
Sweet short book for beginner readers with illustrations to bring the story to life.
My rating of "King and Kayla and the Case of the Missing Dog Treat" is4.5 out of 5 stars.
Ok...this is not a book for a 2 year old but he picked it out from the library and he LOVES it. He totally follows the story and knows who stole the biscuits. He loves the pictures and points out Cat With No Name. He also checked out the missing tooth one and he re tells the story to me. So even though he is only 2 he is understands the concept. They are awesom chapter books that are engaging and fun to read for all ages.

The King & Kayla (2017) series are short chapter books by Dori Hillestad Butler which follow the mystery adventures of Kayla and her golden retriever, King. The language in these short chapter books is rich and varied, but still easy enough for early readers to be able to handle on their own. The topics of the books are fun and King’s internal commentary adds a unique, comical dynamic to the dialogue, offering enjoyment for readers of all ages. The illustrations were appropriate to the story and these mysteries were appropriate in complexity for their target audience.
