Fowl Play

Welcome to Sally's book-a-day-for-2017 blog. If unfamiliar with the blog, scroll down.

Fowl Play- 2008 (Post 218)

Fowl Play is the ninth story in the Jack Russell: Dog Detective series. Jack and Foxie have problems with hens and Jack has a close encounter with a not-dog.

Fowl play in Doggeroo! Auntie Tidge and her friends buy some chooks. When you mix fowls and dogs, you get pan-dog-monium with added hen-sterics.

When the chooks are attacked, the dogs are blamed-- but Jack's super-sniffer detects something strange in the air. With Foxie flipping out, and Sarge and Preacher spending far too much time with new friends, who will help Jack crack the case of FOWL PLAY? Meanwhile, Ralf Boxer is under siege from the ruthless rooster...

Fowl Play is the only one of the Jack series that has not been published by Kane Miller. This has led to some confusion about numbering as American readers number the books 1-11 rather than 1-12.

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service.
