Here's a little bit about who Penny and Rio are:
Penny and Rio are two lovable dogs who are constantly in search of adventure. Their owner brought her pets to life in these award- winning books.
The author, Jennifer Swanson, adopted two dogs and has used their daily escapades in writing her stories. Jennifer Swanson is committed to helping dogs, and a portion of sales from her books goes to a pet rescue center.
The Mysterious Backyard Meeting is the first book in the series. It takes you on Penny and Rio's adventure in finding out why there are animals meeting in the backyard.
The second book of the series is The Locked Doghouse Mystery.
Penny and Rio search for a way to unlock the doghouse next door, and help friends along the way.
Both of these books are very fun, and brightly illustrated. My daughters enjoyed listening to these books and trying to solve the mysteries.
Both books are great early reading books. My first grader is reading them and her big sister is helping her out. This is a great series of books, especially if your children like dogs and mysteries.
You can purchase the Penny and Rio series on their website for $7.99 each or you can buy both books for $15.00 plus s/h. They can also be bought on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble.com
