Alan King's cacophony of dog and human voices will tickle the funny bone as dog detective Jack attempts to track down the dog mugger in downtown Doggeroo. Jack's attempts to interrogate dog witnesses, trap the criminals, and convey to his humans the results of his investigations will strike a chord with dog lovers. King's performance clearly differentiates the cast of characters, and dog crazy listeners will want to catch each of the silly dog puns. However, it's questionable whether the corny soundtrack and slapstick sound effects add anything to the story, and the numerous interruptions to define Jack's dog vocabulary are disruptive rather than clever. Still, the mystery may keep the attention of young listeners. C.A. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
