Following Baxter


Jordie Marie Wallace is thrilled when Professor Reese and her extraordinary dog, Baxter, move in next door.

Soon, Jordie and her brother TJ are walking Baxter and helping Professor Reese in her basement laboratory.

But being lab assistants leads Jordie and TJ to a secret neither of them expected...

“Kerley has written a dog book like no other. Jordie is a resourceful, likable, smart girl who believes equally in science and magic....Readers will want more adventures with these kooky characters.”


“Relatable and compelling. Fans of realistic and science fiction will find a lot to enjoy.”

                                                                                                    School Library Journal

“A highly readable story that pairs a rapid-fire plot with a likable protagonist.”
