Tee can't wait to begin exploring the woods of Alaska, along with her dog Henry, but when something in the woods spooks both Henry and Tee a new adventure unrolls, waiting to be explored. Tee makes a new friend Quinn, and they instantly become close.
Quinn is tall, with red hair, and is very adventurous. She too, shares a love for dogs. Tee and Quinn set out to solve the mystery of the "ghost dog" who supposedly has lived in the woods for over 50 years. As two stories come together, revealing the true bond of an owner and their dog, Tee and Quinn realize how important it is to believe in the good in dogs, because they could just be trying to show you something important The theme of this book is to always look for the good in people.
Tee wasn't to sure about Quinn at first. All she was relying on was her previous times with meeting new kids her age. She learned to give people a second chance, and to look for the best in them. Tee and Quinn ended up becoming best friends. Dodie another character also had to trust her dog, and to believe that her dog was going to help her.
I read this with my 5th and 6th graders and they loved it! It's nice to read a book about kids in Alaska, but it's obvious the author is not from Alaska. She did her best at recreating the Alaskan wilderness, but she did miss a lot of key factors.
Legend of the Ghost Dog by Elizabeth Cody Kimmel Book Reviews
This book combines mystery, adventure, and sled dogs. The two main characters have a great friendship, which is so important for girls to see in middle grade I'm tired of frienemies in middle grade. There's a goofy father that's not absentee but also I read this with my 5th and 6th graders and they loved it!
There's a goofy father that's not absentee but also gives the kids space to have an adventure. The biggest disappointment is the lack of Alaska Native culture. If you live around Nome where the story takes place then you'd be apart or at least affected by the surrounding Alaska Native culture. Overall, it was a fun book. Not too deep or scary, but different enough for 5th and 6th graders to enjoy.

Aug 15, Leonardo Guardado rated it really liked it. This book is actually a very good book. This book has two things to it, adventure and mystery. THis book explains a mystery of a dog who was abandoned and was thought to haunt the woods of Alaska. Three kids were standing to find out what is going on. This book has a meaning to it but don't ask me.
Read it! My 10 year old daughter who doesn't like to read couldn't wait to get back to this book each night. We read this together and I have to say I was the same way.
Loved the characters and the humor. This is a definite read for those who love a good mystery and for those that dont I have to say I shed a few tears there at the end.!!! Exceptional book!!

Only criticism is that they mentioned Alaska having snakes more than once Nov 03, GGSnaps rated it it was amazing. Like one big mystery. The ghost dog wants to help, and Tee and Quin have to find out what the ghost dog is, why its guarding the cabin, and will find a very old lady who is linked to the mystery.
