Winston arrives at his new home expecting a calm, sleepy life but what he actually finds is a new friend with an agile, unpredictable mind. One hound is a retired, cantankerous old dog. The other is an excitable, irreverent runner. Together, they fight crime!
When a family heirloom gets pilfered from the yard, Shirley and Winston launch into action to solve the mystery. Introducing new forest contacts and the first look at the sleepy town of Bakersville, The Mystery Hounds: The Scent of Gold sets the stage for the ongoing saga of canine adventures.
The Scent of Gold is a great tale for reading aloud, making it an ideal bedtime story and foundational reader for young children.
