After his last run-in with Vince the Funnel and the mystery of the missing chicks, J.J. the search-and-rescue dog is ready for some much-needed R & R. But just when he thinks he has everything under control, thereís a new problem to worry about: Diamond Lil, a shiny new dog whoís taken up residence next door. Suddenly Moosh and her chicks are spending an awful lot of time with their fancy friend, talking about weird things like fluffy feathers and good posture. And Lilís not the only new kid cramping J.J.ís style. Thereís a possum loose, and itís up to J.J. to keep everyone safe. But the questions keep piling up. Is Lil all that she seems? And how does the possum keep finding her way to the chicken coop?

In this hilarious follow-up to The Trouble with Chickens, the clues, plot twists, and one-liners add up to an unputdownable read.

Review: The Legend of Diamond Lil (JJ Tully Mystery #2)

User Review  - Denise Greene - Goodreads

Of the books on the Colorado Children's Book Award list, this is probably the one I liked the least. It was definitely geared toward lower level readers who might enjoy the "mystery" of the story. It definitely falls short of the writing quality of many others on the list. Read full review
