It is their February school break and Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose are lucky enough to be in San Francisco with Dink's father, Mr. Duncan. And best of all, it is the beginning of Chinese New Year. Since Mr. Duncan has business to take care of, he has hired a young college student to take the kids sightseeing. Holden Wong comes complete with a three-wheeled buggy to pedal the kids around San Francisco.

First up is a trip the the famous San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf to see the sights there, especial...more

Cute mystery for middle elementary school readers. Simple adventure mystery where the three kids try to help clear their friend Holden's name when he is accused of stealing the Chinese New Year princess's crown. They follow clues and travel around the town to solve the crime. Simple, fun not scary at all. 2nd-4th graders maybe? Also there is a hidden message in the pictures which is fun too.

We have loved the A to Z Mysteries series and have read them all. We love that Mr. Roy has written several extra "Super Edition" stories with the same characters. Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose feel like old friends to us.

This was a fun story with a Chinese theme and takes the friends to San Francisco. I loved showing our girls the places I've visited on the map in the book. The story does a good job explaining about some of the more popular tourist sites in the city. I enjoyed showing our girls the...more

This was the first A to Z Mysteries book I've read and I really enjoyed it. It was a little less complicated than the Cam Jansen books and Nate the Great books I've read. The size of the print and the fact that the text is double spaced made the book easy and quick to read, which should appeal to beginner and reluctant readers both. I also liked the extra mystery of finding the hidden letters in the illustrations for one final secret message. The story wasn't too long or complicated to read, but...more

A very well told story, cute and realistic at the same time. You have to put aside your thoughts that children of this age should never be allowed to go places alone to enjoy this book. I sure wish the word inside this book, existed.

Another fun Ron Roy mystery. This time Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose head to San Francisco and learn some of the traditions of Chinese New Year while chasing the thief who stole the giant ruby.
Lauren McKeon Jenkins
It's always a treat to read a new A to Z Mystery with my kids. The super editions are fun because they're longer and have the hidden message - I just wish Ron Roy wrote them faster!
Heidi
I read this with my sons, and we loved it. Another great Ron Roy book.
