Review: A to Z Mysteries - The Deadly Dungeon, The Empty Envelope, The Falcon's Feathers, The Goose's Gold by Ron Roy

Review: A to Z Mysteries - The Deadly Dungeon, The Empty Envelope, The Falcon's Feathers, The Goose's Gold by Ron Roy (on audio)

rating: 4.0/5.0

This was my first exposure to The A to Z Mystery series which is a set of children's chapter books focusing on friends Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose who always end up trying to solve some sort of mystery. My oldest son (8) has read some of these before and was thrilled to see this set at the library when we went a few weeks ago. I thought it would be great for us to share the time spent in the car listening to books and then I didn't have to worry so much about him listening to the books I typically listen to. I was right - this is wonderful. The books are fun and we both work to figure out who did it in each one. We'll pause and talk about it and then finish up the book. The reader is wonderful, the stories easy to follow and suspenseful for a 3rd grader without being frightening.

I can't recommend these enough for those of you with children with budding interests in mysteries - it's fun time for you to share with them whether you are reading them or listening to them on tape.

After the first one was finished my DS was asking if the library had more of these. Sadly they only have I-J on audiobook, but they have the rest of the series in books. So I have the audiobooks, and we'll finish up reading because I want to know more about the adventures of Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose.
