Book: McKenzie’s Oregon Operation by Shari Barr, Barbour Publishing, 2010
McKenzie's Oregon Operation (Camp Club Girls) 
Genre: Mystery
Target Audience: Girls 10-13
Subjects: Power of prayer, trust in God, care for animals
Summary: Susie is not acting right, she’s acting sad and upset – and with good reason! Someone has stolen her pups away from her. McKenzie and Alex are determined to help the sea lion find her pups again and they think they have some clues as to who stole them. No one believes them though. The couple they suspect have a reputation for being rich and successful sea lion and seal trainers. There’s no reason for them to steal the pups. But someone stole them and the girls, with the help of the other Camp Club girls via phone, mail, and e-mail are determined to find out who!
Notes:  This book has a few notes about spiritual issues such as prayer and faith in God. It has a mini lesson on obeying adults – the girls almost get in extreme danger due to not obeying an adult’s instructions at the beginning of the book. It’s primary “lesson” though, is about caring for animals and how God expects us to do so.
Recommendation Scale: 3/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Proverbs 12:10 – A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.
