Cooper and Daddy are excited about the game. Every night around the same time, Cooper perks up to play the game. Daddy throws a treat into the next room and Cooper goes after it. The game begins then. Once Cooper is out of sight, the treats are hidden everywhere; under pillows, in baskets, behind curtains, and near books on tables. Cooper runs around the whole house searching for the treats, imagining he is Inspector Cooper. He channels his inner detective that helps him to have a sharp vision and the ability to smell more. He imagines he is surveying the landscape and climbs over his Mommy as if he is climbing a hill. Will Inspector Cooper be able to find all the treats hidden by Daddy?

A Game with Cooper by Debbie Gonzalez is a delightful story filled with fun and adventure and is a good story for all dog lovers and children who love adventure. Kate Fallahee's illustrations bring the story to life and give Cooper a personality that is charming and memorable. It is interesting how Cooper uses his imagination and plays the game. It is a charming bedtime storybook for parents and grandparents and can be used in classrooms for reading aloud and storytelling sessions. The story has energy, enthusiasm, adventure, and fun and children will enjoy looking for the treats along with Inspector Cooper. It will make children creative and imaginative while playing, just like Cooper is while looking for the hidden treats.

Inspector Cooper takes you on a beautiful journey as he searches for his beloved treats. I can not remember the last time that I laughed, smiled and had this much fun reading a children's book. The Author draws you into the story right from the beginning and the excitement remains until the very end. I highly recommend this book to children and adults of all ages. This is the second book of the Cooper Book series and I can not wait for the next one.

We cannot wait to see what adventure cooper takes us on next.
