The second book in a charming new chapter book series about smart pups who start a neighborhood newspaper, for fans of The Secret Life of Pets.
Bob is the stationmaster's dog at Puddle Train Station and a reporter for The Daily Bark, Puddle's best (and only) newspaper for dogs. It's up to Bob to make sure the trains are perfectly on time every day. He has it all under control until the day he digs up the SCOOP of a lifetime in the park – a DINOSAUR skeleton!
Suddenly Bob's life isn't running like clockwork, it's running WILD as he and the other News Hounds catch the scent of a dastardly dinosaur THIEF. Can Bob pull off a daring dinosaur rescue, or is he on the express train to DISASTER?
