The character, Oliver, reminds me of how my sister and brother follow me around all the time because he is always following Nate. When Nate says he wishes he could deposit Oliver in the bank when he gets on his nerves, I know how he feels. Sometimes I feel like I'd like to deposit my sister and brother in the bank so I could have some privacy! I'm glad I have my dog to play with just like the characters in this book. I have never given my dog a birthday party but I think it would be fun to do that.
I recommend this book. I have read other books about Nate, and his friends, and I enjoy reading mysteries. The Nate series of books are good books that I can read and enjoy by myself. I like stories that have dogs in them because dogs can be really funny. My dog makes me laugh when he chases his tail and goes around in circles.
