Perfect for young dog lovers, this fifth Blossom Family title is a mysterious and touching finale to the best-selling series by Newbery Medal-winning author Betsy Byars.
When Junior brings home the classroom hamster, Scooty, he decides to build the best hamster tunnel ever. But when Scooty goes missing, all evidence points to Mud. In the meantime, Mad Mary is missing, too--although her bag and walking stick were found near the highway. When Mary later wakes up in the hospital, she realizes that the Blossom family might just have provided her with the strength she needs to pull her life back together. It's anything but an ordinary weekend with the Blossoms!
