    When friends Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose go to Penelope Guinn's concert, Dink hurts his arm and the singer's penguin pendant is stolen. Can they solve the mystery of who took the pendant and what is up with Dink's X-ray and why it was X'ed-out? Read this book and see. This was a pretty good Young adult mystery novel. I enjoyed checking this book out. If you like mysteries, def check it out.

    Our girls love the A to Z Mysteries and we are a little sad that we only have two books to go. They are fun stories, though a bit contrived at times. This is an interesting story, filled with some intrigue, a burglary, and excitement, but it wasn't our favorite. Our girls really enjoy the main characters, Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose, and we will miss them when we finish the series.

    I think Ron Roy is an amazing writer. This was not one of his greatest books but it was still a nice read. Its about Dink "breaking" his arm when they go to a concert. Mysteriously at the time where Dink was getting he arm raped up the singer lost her pricless neacklace. You'll have to read to find out what happens I think Ron Roy is an amazing writer.

A friend has convinced me to try my hand this year at writing children's literature; but I don't actually know anything about children's literature, so am starting the process simply by reading a large selection of titles that have been recommended to me. I've been told that these, the "A to Z Mysteries" by Ron Roy (a 26-book series, each named after a different letter in the alphabet) are among the most popular "chapter books" these days among the elementary-school readers they're designed for (so in other words, aged roughly 7 to 10); and indeed, after reading three of them myself (U, X and Y), I can see that they touch on nearly every piece of advice I've now been given regarding writing for this age group, including a strong sense of humor, a quickly-paced but not too complicated storyline, lots of action and mystery, many scenes set in a school environment, and sentences that average around ten words. (Note, however, that these books don't adhere to one piece of advice I've been given, to concentrate on the ways that boys and girls interact at that age; although the three-person team of friends at the center of our tales is co-ed, they essentially all act the same, and eschew relationships with other children mostly to instead interrogate adults regarding the latest mystery they're trying to solve.) In fact, I was surprised by just how old-fashioned and even fuddy-duddy these stories sometimes are, given their immense popularity, happy proof that you don't nearly need to know about all the latest children's fads in order to write books that will appeal to them; they take place in a small middle-class pedestrian-oriented "Leave It To Beaver"esque town where even cellphones barely exist, and except for a few references to the internet could easily be mistaken for the chapter books from the 1950s and '60s that I grew up on. As is typical for this age group, the "mystery" behind each story is pretty easily solvable, and is used mostly as an excuse to teach the rational problem-solving process of observation, interviews, and logical deduction; and as is typical of many authors for this age group, Roy often uses these stories to emphasize non-controversial moral lessons (i.e. "Lying is bad"), and also I think does an admirable job at adding as much diversity as possible to his admittedly white-bread environment. Each book is around 10,000 words altogether, broken into a dozen or so chapters, and contains dozens of illustrations* by John Steven Gurney. *And P.S., not that this matters, but there was an aspect of these books that re-awakened an old complaint of mine from when I was in grade school and actually reading such books myself -- namely, the fact that the covers are done in a lush, full-color, photorealistic style, while the interior illustrations are monotonally cartoonish to the level of a typical newspaper comic strip, something I always considered a "bait & switch" scam when I was an actual kid. Although I could care less as a grown-up (and indeed, as a grown-up now understand why such a thing is done in the first place), I found it funny that these books could make a long-forgotten thirty-year-old memory re-emerge like that so profoundly.

    A fun little mystery for kids, where the thief is the one not suspected until the last minute. The kid-detectives use realistic methods to get clues, and are able to catch the culprit with the help of their policeman-friend.

    Ah, yes....I do enjoy the A to Z mysteries...and I'm not a mystery person. This book started out great--a concert, three kids, everyone dressed up in costume--and ended up a real puzzler that could not be solved until the ending.

    A cute little mystery for 2nd/3rd graders. The series would be an excellent introduction to the mystery genre for that age.

    I saw someone in one of my reading groups was doing the ABC Reading challenge and, since I finished all my reading challenges over a month ago, decided to give it a try too, I decided to give this one a try. However, I could not find a book beginning with X that I hadn't read or had any interest in reading. One list had this series on as an option so I chose this one because I used to read these with my daughter and I felt nostalgic.

    I asked my son to pick out one of the A to Z Mysteries that he thought I would like. He chose this one and told me "things are not as they seem." Good little mystery book and perfect for kids 7-10 years old. I asked my son to pick out one of the A to Z Mysteries that he thought I would like.

    I can give a pass that a child might not know how a broken arm works, but a parent would probably have noticed something way off. - x-ray immediately? What about needed to wait a few days for swelling to go down? - or what about the child not screaming so probably not broken at all? Then the main clue: (view spoiler)[The autograph book could have been stolen, why would someone use their own for the crime? And leave it? Well, in the end that was the case, but super dumb.

    This is another cute story about three friends working together to solve a mystery that occurs while they're living their daily lives. As always, the kids demonstrate healthy relationships with each other and with the adults in their lives. Two things that I especially liked in this book were how well Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose worked together to solve this mystery and how quick they were to give each other the credit for solving the mystery. I am sad that I'm almost at the end of this series. This is another cute story about three friends working together to solve a mystery that occurs while they're living their daily lives.

    I love this book. In fact, i love all good mystery books. But this isn’t some cheap knock off mystery book that took 2 hours to write, It’s actually a good mystery book. I only figured the mystery out after the halfway mark! It’s a unique mystery and its a lot of fun to read. I recommend this book and the rest of this series to anybody who likes that chill that goes down your spine when you figure out who did it. I like how the author made the ending and the confession come out clean.

    Read these books when I was a kid and greatly enjoyed them, figured I'd give them a second read for kicks. I certainly recommend any young mysteries fan devote time to this series, it's certainly a grand adventure for a young mind, the imagery of Ron Roy's words and his settings and unique character descriptions and personalities really help kids imagine a whole movie in their heads as they read each exciting page.

    I thought this one was pretty clever. My daughter (6) and I read this in two sittings. She would have loved to read it in one, but it was bedtime. I have read a bunch of these with my daughter (all out of order). She loves them. I have to say, I'm always wanting to know more about the criminals. These books seem to really condemn the villains. Surely, some of these crooks deserve a little more compassion. The thief in this one lived in a ramshackle house. I felt kind of bad for him, living in po I thought this one was pretty clever.

The thief in this one lived in a ramshackle house. I felt kind of bad for him, living in poverty, committing crimes to achieve his dreams. But before I could find out his motivations, it was off to the slammer. I'm not saying stealing and trickery should be overlooked but everybody deserves a bit of understanding.

    A trio of friends encounter another mystery after winning tickets to a Penelope Gwinn (a.k.a. Penguin) concert. Her diamond necklace is stolen, and Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose think they may have seen the culprit. Yes, I read this because I needed an "X" for an A-Z reading challenge, but I was pleasantly surprised. This is an engaging lower middle grade mystery series.

    My kids loved this story. We read just a chapter a night and then we talked about the chapter we read. What their favorite part in the book was so far? We also talked about what their guesses on who stole the item at the concert. My kids had good guesses and they had fun telling everyone why they believe that person is the person who stole the item. Though, my two year old thought it was the Pizza man every time and there was no character that is Pizza Man. My kids really enjoyed this book and c My kids loved this story.

This book is great and I highly recommend it.
