(http://just18summers.com/piper-tales-the-adventures-of-a-lucky-black-and-white-dog-part-5/) Chapter 17: Tent Meeting   When word got out that Tyler Scott—a fifth grade student—and his one-year-old dog, Piper, had led the police to a ring of dog thieves that had victimized owners and their pets throughout Sandhills County, they became instant celebrities. In an interview for the newspaper, Tyler told how he and Piper had seen a beagle being dog-napped at the park. They followed the van that had taken her away to the place where the dog- nappers were holding dogs to be sold on...

Why do you guys like this flea market so much anyway?” Sanford let go of Lynn’s hand and reached behind her to tussle Tyler’s hair. “Because it’s where we find some of the nice things we have in our house. Like your bed for instance.” Tyler fixed his hair and shoved his hands into his jean’s pockets. His mom paused to look at stained glass while he and his dad moved ahead. As they turned the corner, Tyler pulled a hand from his pocket and flattened it against his father’s chest....

Chapter 11: Two Unwelcome Guests   While Tyler and Rhett stood at the kitchen sink gulping glasses of water, Chincha sniffed and barked at the kennel of puppies they’d left on the porch. Tyler’s mom came around the corner with a basket of clothes from the laundry room. “Hey! Glad you’re back. There’s lemonade in the fridge if you want some.” She lifted a pink towel from the pile, then dropped it back in the basket and looked towards the screen door. “What’s all the commotion about? Why’s Chincha barking?” Tyler and Rhett bumped into each as they rushed for...

Chapter 8:  Missing Bikes and Dogs                           Everyone at Sandhills Elementary knew who Tyler Sanford was. Sometimes that was a good thing and sometimes it wasn’t. Today it was a good thing. Even though it was raining and he had to ride his bike to school to have a way home after soccer practice, he wouldn’t have to leave his bike outside all day. It wasn’t the rain he was worried about. His bike had been in the rain plenty of times before. But, lately, bikes—even ones with locks—had been...

Chapter 5:  Abandoned                                     No one saw or heard the paint-worn, rusty red pickup come to a stop at the side of the road in front of the school yard. Its driver, in a shirt too thin for the night, shivered as he stepped from the truck and walked around to the other side. He listened for any sound that would signal he was being watched. Confident he was alone and unseen, he quietly opened the car door and lifted a peach crate...
