ack-and-white. Fred Shedd's dog, Duz, is about to make his Hollywood debut as Genghis Khan, the meanest mutt in moviedom. Then Duz is dognapped on the set and the director starts screaming for a new Genghis. Can Fred save his dog before Hollywood sheds the Shedds? "A just-right novel for those moving from picture books to chapter books."--School Library Journal.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-After winning a look-alike contest and becoming the replacement for the retiring canine Genghis Khan, Duz Shedd arrives in Hollywood. He and his human family are put up in an elegant mansion, and Duz is scheduled to begin his role in Genghis Khan: The Challenge. However, he receives a note threatening that the "real" owner will show up to claim the soon-to-be famous dog, and his contract is jeopardized. Then, he disappears. In the end, the dognapper, who intended to replace Duz with her cat, is caught by the narrator's best friend. As with her "Nate the Great" series, Sharmat has written a fast-moving mystery with many light moments. Plot and character development are limited but adequate. This is a traditional mystery solved by a bright young person who uses her critical thinking to identify the motive for the threats and the subsequent disappearance. Funny black-and-white cartoon drawings appear throughout. A just-right novel for those moving from picture books to chapter books.
