KIRKUS REVIEW

This story has a double-barreled appeal,--to mystery addicts and to dog lovers. I think the dog aspects have it all over the mystery aspects, but some may not agree. As a mystery, the story revolves around the identity of the woman in the top floor of the house-- it is deliberately baffling, but lacks dramatic suspense. The rest of the story, revolving around 17-year old Mimi who runs a boarding house for dogs in New York, is amusing enough to keep one chuckling over the realistic descriptions of the dogs and the originality of the other characters.
