Loved this book. It gave me more information on the Salem witch trials even though it is a fiction book. So if you’re interested in the witch trials this would be a book for you. Starts out all inocent and sweet at a carnival with a fortune teller, then becomes much worse. Lots of suspense, great book. A must read in my opinion.

Book Trailer: Hotel for Dogs

This book trailer for Hotel for Dogs was originally the Mystery Book Theater video for our Dogs theme. For more on Hotel for Dogs, check out our “Who Let the Dogs Out?” podcast.

What happens when two siblings and their friends unite behind one shared purpose? TRICK QUESTION, because siblings can never stop bickering long enough to unite! At least, that’s what happens in Hotel for Dogs by Lois Duncan!

Sound familiar? That’s probably because the book was made into a movie, starring Emma Roberts and Jake T. Austin. For our thoughts on the book vs. the movie, check out our podcast!
