Pansy at the Palace

Pansy at the Palace is a mystery book for children written by Cynthia Bardes.  Pansy is a poodle who is waiting for the perfect person to come adopt her from the shelter.  When a little girl named Avery walks in, Pansy knows she is the one.  Avery lives in a very posh Beverly Hills Hotel and living in a hotel is a new adventure for Pansy.  Pansy loves her new life of meeting all the nice people, eating by the pool, and of course playing with Avery.  The only thing that isn’t perfect is a mean cat named Desiree.  Pansy can sense something is amiss with the strange cat.  Suddenly there is a jewel thief stealing from everyone in the hotel.  If Avery and Pansy don’t find out who it is their beloved hotel will close down.  Follow sweet Pansy on her hotel adventure!
This is a very sweet story that children will enjoy.  Pansy and Avery are easy characters to fall in love with and cheer on.  The illustrations are soft and charming and complement the story well.  The storyline is not scary, but is still exciting so it is suitable for children of all ages. My children really enjoyed Pansy’s hotel mystery and have asked to read it several times.  This is a cute book for the keeper shelf.
