Why do the ducks keep crossing River Road? In Green Lawn, this question isn't just the beginning of a funny riddle, it's a major community problem. To protect their fine feathered friends, the kids help raise enough cash to construct a special duck bridge. But before Dink, Josh, and Ruth Ross can receive one grateful quack, the duck fund is stolen. Can our intrepid good citizens wade through this quicksand-like quandary?
Children's Literature
In this "A to Z Mysteries" book, the money the town has raised to build the ducks' crossing-bridge over the highway is stolen from the firehouse. Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose get involved when they are sleeping in the barn and see a car's headlight in the field. A fire brings out the fire department and it seems to be a way to get the fireman away so that the duck bank with the money collection can be stolen. The kids finally wind up in quicksand while trying to track the thief. The firemen are helpful in the identification of the thief and in the rescue of the children. The book is easy to read and has good related illustrations. It is a simple mystery series that can be understood by the age level intended. 2002, A Stepping Stone Book/Random House,
