Zach & Zoe: Bully and the Beagle

by Kristin Butcher

Zach and Zoe set out to solve the mystery of disappearing household items.

Zach and Zoe start up 'Odd Jobs Unlimited' as a way to beat the summer doldrums, but just when their business begins to take off with a dogsitting job, bullying cousin Howie comes to stay. Juggling the needs of the pup and the demands of their cousin is difficult enough, but when household items start disappearing, the twins set out to solve the mystery.
