            The main lesson that is learned in Ginger Pye is never take things to seriously. For example, Ginger saw Jerry walk out the door and wondered, where does he go everyday? Ginger strolls out the door and follows him. Taking things too seriously puts you in the wrong hat. Don't worry, like when Jerry and Rachel didn't worry when they almost didn't get to Speedy's barn on time. The character that learn not to take things to seriously is Jerry for Ginger showing up at school one day.Although, he is small he is mighty and all the Pyes would agree that Ginger is an adventuress puppy. I'd like to report this book as an "8 out of 10." I would recommend this book to people who love animals and mysterious books. An unanswered question I would really like to ask the author is,"Who's hat flew into the reservoir and would this affect the Pye family bringing Ginger home or something to do with the mysterious foot stepper?

                    Hey! I had brought this amazing book from a downtown bookshop, the back didn't really WOW me but as soon as I started it had clicked. The author uses great true details in her work. I loved Uncle Bennie in the book who was so realistic and cute! I was scared it would upset me because I am a dog lover, but instead it gave me chills for who the man in the yellow hat was who kept showing up. This book would kept you on the edge of your seat and was great!

                      Hi! I read this book for my 4th grade guided reading group book. I felt this story pulled you in from the first word to the last. This story is very heart warming. I love the mystery and the characters in this book. My favorite character was Rachel Pye she is so interested in everything not does not give up i think everyone can learn something from her. I would tell you my favorite part but i don't want to give anything away for the people who have not read this. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes dogs and mystery even if you don't give it a try.
