The Jade Mystery: Adventures of Teddy and Trouble, Book 2 is an animal adventure picture book for children written by M.L. Moyer and illustrated by S.W. Moyer. Teddy was asleep on his favorite rug in the living room when Trouble came barreling into the room. He was running so fast he began to slip and slide on the polished wooden floor, and both dogs lost their balance and fell flat on the floor. Trouble breathlessly explained that he had found something really remarkable; something Teddy had to come out and see. Trouble ran out the door again, with Teddy at his heels, but, suddenly, Teddy noticed Trouble had disappeared. They had been in a beautiful garden complete with a tiny pool, but as Teddy looked around, he could see no sign of his mischievous brother. Then he saw it -- hidden behind vines draping over a stone wall, there was a small door, and it was ajar. Was Trouble in there?
M.L. Moyer’s The Jade Mystery is an exciting and sumptuously illustrated story that continues the adventures of two golden Labradors. There’s an adventure, suspense, excitement, and even lurking danger hidden within the pages of this deceptively slim volume, and it’s all made incredibly real via the artwork of S.W. Moyer. Each panel is a delight to linger upon and study, especially the tidal pools and coastal scenes which had me wistfully imagining traveling once again along the Pacific Coast Highway. The author’s characters capture the fun-loving, gallant, and adventurous spirit of canine companions, especially golden Labradors, and the story kept me entertained and enjoying every moment. The Jade Mystery is a grand example of what an exceptional picture book can be; there’s even a series of questions for kids to work through at the back of the book, which will let them re-experience the adventures of Teddy and Trouble even more fully. Most highly recommended.
