Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
Part of the publisher's "A to Z Mysteries" series, this little story is designed for the early chapter book reader. Other titles in the series include The Absent Author and The Canary Caper. The intrepid hero here is Donald David Duncan, known to those who count as Dink. The problem he faces is tracking down a red-haired witness to a bank robbery. An engaging cast of characters variously assist and hinder him in this enterprise. With humor and zest, the story moves along, until a clever twist makes the team draw on every last resource at their disposal. Ruth Rose, Dink's neighbor and comrade-in-disguise, is a joy to the ear!
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Josh, Ruth Rose, and Dink use their brains, observation powers, and a little courage to work together to solve four very different mysteries by Ron Roy. In Deadly Dungeon, the trio is visiting their favorite writer at her castle in Maine when they stumble upon mysterious green feathers and hear screams. Discovering a trap door which leads to a cave is only the beginning of unraveling the mystery. In Empty Envelope, Dink accidentally receives letters addressed to someone else and they soon realize that something is not right about the envelopes or the lady who comes looking for them. The trio must do some quick research and also set a trap with the police to catch the criminals. Josh discovers a nest of falcons, but when he brings Dink and Ruth Rose to the nest the birds are gone in Falcon's Feather. They find a falcon with clipped feathers and have to work fast to solve the mystery and save the birds. In Goose's Gold, the group is in Florida visiting Ruth Rose's grandmother when they stumble upon a scam involving sunken treasure and cheating senior citizens out of their money. The stories are clearly read by actor David Pittu with slightly different voices for each character. Background music transitions the beginning and end of each story. Young readers will enjoy this popular series with believable characters who have incredible opportunities to solve mysteries on their own with adults who help when needed but don't interfere in their adventures.-Teresa Wittmann, Westgate Elementary School, Edmonds, WA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    The Jaguar's Jewel

    The book was o-kay. It didn't have alot of excitment that a good mystery book needs to have. I barely felt sorry for the character. Notice I said character, not characters. That's because there is only one character that I should feel sorry for and I didn't! Were supposed to care about Dink's uncle, because he's been accused of stealing an emerald but I didn't. We barely know Dink's uncle and then after just meeting him, he's accused of stealing a jewel! The readers don't know this man alot and don't know that he would never do something like this. Of course the main character thinks for one secound that his uncle may be the thief then decides against it because there are so many other suspects and the main character always knows he is right. Dink and his friends, Josh and Ruth Rose are so calm after they learn Dink's uncle may be a theif all they can do is sit in a cafe and drink hot chcocolate! Then they begen to think about who could've stole the jewel because again the main character is always right. All the suspect are just typical ordinary people who have to be suspects because there has to be suspects and so they can save the main characters when all seems lost. Another thing about this book is the charatcers spend have the book in a cafe just thinking about suspects. Can you say boring? I love A to Z Mysteries, I really do! But I cannot forgive Ron Roy for this book. If you really are a die hard fan of A to Z Mysteries then you may want to read this but if not you better skip this one.
