  • Interest Level: Grade 4 - Grade 8   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 4

Yes, Chicagoland is an odd place. But the word is out that Megan, Raf, and Raf’s talking dog Bradley are the team to go to when weirder things than usual start happening. Their Chicagoland Detective Agency takes danger in hand (and paw) to find a mysteriously missing puppy and an even more mysterious pack of dogs that only shows up once a month.

Bradley’s nose knows from the start that this is more than a simple case of stray pets . . . and a whole lot more than a stray case of full-moon transmogrification! Will high tech and haikus be enough to save them from the world’s worst case of doggy breath?
