From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-- Sebastian the clever canine and his owner are back, this time to find the thief of a famous masterpiece that disappeared during a museum opening. Suspense is sustained throughout; the above average plot develops through colorful langugage and a logical sequence as suspects are eliminated one by one. As is characteristic of the series, the story unfolds from Sebastian's point of view; techniques right out of Edgar Allen Poe and Sherlock Holmes introduce beginning readers to more sophisticated mystery fare. Up-to-date, this tale mentions a security system, 24-hour computers, and an owner of the painting who threatens to sue the city. The bright, attractive cover will capture readers; humorous black-and-white drawings of the engaging dog detective appear in each chapter.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-6. Christian's hairy hawkshaw returns to solve yet another baffling crime in this tale of an African elephant stolen from a circus. Although Sebastian's human, Detective John Quincy Jones, is technically assigned to the case, the cagey canine saves the day by locating the purloined pachyderm, reuniting two estranged brothers, and exposing the true identity of a clown, Rambling Rose--all in time for the circus to offer a special benefit performance. Christian includes a wealth of information about circuses and elephant behavior as well as a fairly detailed look at the detective process. Sebastian's trademark behaviors--his voracious appetite and a penchant for outrageous (yet somehow unnoticed) disguises--add to the fun. A sure bet for series fans, this will also be popular with beginning chapter book readers and mystery buffs. Kay Weisman
