Introducing DOG SQUAD, the crime-fighting, tail-wagging, hilarious new series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library and coauthor of Max Einstein!

When trouble calls . . . it's DOG SQUAD to the rescue!

Duke is not your average dog. Along with his crew, he fights crime and goes on claw-biting adventures helping dogs in peril in the hit streaming sensation--DOG SQUAD! Fred is a pretty average dog. He's scrappy. He's loveable. But he's not brave like his heroes on Dog Squad.

Fred looks an awful lot like Duke from Dog Squad though. In fact, when Duke needs a stand-in, Fred's the perfect choice. But the Dog Squad action doesn't always stop on screen! When there's danger in real life, can Fred find the courage to step up and save the day?!

It's all paws on deck in this action-packed, middle grade adventure series just right for anyone who loves dogs--and anyone who loves to laugh!
“Plentiful action and “pawsome” puns. Doggone fun.”—Kirkus Reviews

"In frequent ink-and-fill scenes (not seen in finished form), Hughes depicts the courageous canine in action from various dramatic angles. Grabenstein bills his “wags-to-riches” tale as a series kickoff, but notwithstanding a broad hint about the next episode, this stands all four paws firmly on its own.” —Booklist

“Laced with positive messages but never preachy, this allegorical, fast-paced, rollicking adventure will appeal to all readers. . . . this canine adventure shows what it means to be brave.” —School Library Journal
