Smells Like Pirates

By Suzanne Selfors (Trade Paperback, 2013)
Homer thought that being inducted as a member of the treasure hunting society L.O.S.T. would be the key to finding pirate Rumpold Smeller's missing fortune. But when Homer's sworn enemy, Lorelei, forms an evil organization called FOUND, Homer and Dog face an impossible decision: Work with Lorelei to find the prize once and for all, or abandon their lifelong quest to locate the treasure.

In the end, there can be only one owner of the coveted pirate booty. Who will reach it first? And who will be forced to walk the plank? What does FOUND mean for the future of L.O.S.T.? And just what is this famous treasure, anyway? Adventure abounds in this fun-filled, seaworthy tale of friendship, mystery, and one very special four-legged friend.

Rumor has it that author Suzanne Selfors dreams of becoming a pirate and ruling the seven seas. Unfortunately, her loyal companion, Skylos, does not like to get his paws wet. So until they find a really good doggy wet suit, they are confirmed landlubbers. Suzanne is the author of the Imaginary Veterinary series, the Smells Like Dog series, Fortune's Magic Farm, To Catch a Mermaid, and many other books.
