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

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
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

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.
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

Great book

This book was a great book.
I liked it because it had action.
I recommend this book for ages seven to one hundred and seven years old!
A great kids book. Both of my children (ages 10 and 7) really enjoyed it. The characters in this series are great for young children to read about.
Alex loved this one, she is a huge fan of mysteries. She also loved that it took place in SF

Oliver James
Very mysterious. Love it.
Great detective work Josh, Dink and Ruth Rose. Loved the location as well.
when lily was supposed to be mrs.chinatown and she throws candy and gets to ride a big giant balloon and lily goes missing the police officers and dink and his friends follow they find lily in a box and they have know idea who did that to lily.
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 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!
I read this with my sons, and we loved it. Another great Ron Roy book.
