Woof (Bowser and Birdie #1) by Spencer Quinn
This story is told by a dog - Bowser, who has been adopted by Birdie, an 11 year old girl who lives in Louisiana with her grandmother while her mom works on an oil rig. Her grandmother runs a bait and swamp tour shop and when her family heirloom mounted fish is stolen off of the wall of the shop, a mystery ensues and Bowser and Birdie try to find the thief, learn some family history and get in trouble with some bad guys. A lot of details are left out because they don't matter to the dog. This is the first book in a new series. Children who like dogs and mystery stories should enjoy this book.
