Poppy the Pirate Dog is in charge of keeping the treasure safe, so what happens when some jewelry goes missing?

It’s Mom’s birthday, so Tim and Suzy are planning a special pirate show for her. Poppy’s job is to guard the treasure, but while on duty, she hurts her eye and has to go to the vet. Worse yet, she comes home not with a pirate eye patch, but with a big plastic cone around her neck! While the rest of the family searches for Dad’s missing present—a sparkly necklace for Mom—Poppy sulks alone outside. But then Poppy catches sight of something twinkling in the grass. Is this her chance to redeem herself as the best pirate dog ever? This third early reader from Liz Kessler sparkles with warmth, humor, and a dash of pirate gold.

About the Author

Liz Kessler is the author of the first two books about Poppy the Pirate Dog, as well as the best-selling middle-grade series about half-mermaid Emily Windsnap, the Philippa Fisher series, and the novels A Year Without Autumn, North of Nowhere, and Has Anyone Seen Jessica Jenkins? The Poppy stories are inspired by the adventures of her own dog—named Poppy, of course! Liz Kessler lives in England.

Mike Phillips has been illustrating children’s books, from picture books for the very young to the gruesome Horrible Histories by Terry Deary, for almost twenty years. He lives in a small fishing village in England with his family and thinks his own dog, who is named Poppy—believe it or not!—may also want to be a pirate.

Poppy the Pirate Dog (and the Missing Treasure), is a fun fiction book that is about a family and their dog getting ready for their Mom’s birthday party until one of the presents accidentally becomes hidden treasure. The family works together to try and find the missing present before the party. Will the family ever find the hidden treasure? To find out, you must read this book! The chapter book has lots of bright colorful pictures, some mystery, and plenty of Poppy! My favorite part of this book was the surprise ending. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes pirates, dogs, and mystery. I think both boys and girls, ages 7-12, would enjoy reading this book. I gave it 5 stars because I like pirates and dogs, especially Poppy! Reviewed by Lila H., age 8, Central Pennsylvania Mensa
