Lahaska: Mike Carroll - DOG GONE DOG

The Lahaska Bookshop will be hosting children's author Michael Carroll for a reading and book signing on Sunday, July 15th at 1:00 pm. Michael is the author of Dewey Mac Maker Mysteries: Dog Gone Dog, an exciting middle grade adventure novel full of spy gadgets. And best of all, you can come play with some of the spy gadgets Dewey makes in the book! Michael will be teaching everyone how to make a real-working lie detector, grappling hook blaster, spy microphone, and more. Most of Dewey's gadgets can be made from common and inexpensive parts, making this a fun, interactive afternoon for kids of all ages. 
Dewey Mac Maker Mysteries: Dog Gone Dog
On a crazy field trip, amateur detective Dewey "Mac" McClain discovers the mayor's dog is missing. Dewey and best friend Ched (not Chad, as Dewey's mom always says) start the Awesome Kid Agency (aka: AKA) and take the case. Can Dewey find the missing dog, thwart a kidnapping, and still finish his homework by Monday morning? Want some adventure in your life? After reading this tale you can make all of the spy gadgets that Dewey Mac makes. That's right! All you will need are a few common and inexpensive items.
