I am currently reading The Invisible Island by: Ron Roy! I am not very far because I just started, but think this book will be great because the kids in the book are adventurous, curious, and risk takers! I also think it will be a good book because all of the other books Ron Roy has written have pulled me out of my chair. So far this book has been great and they are about to encounter their adventure of the invisible island. This book has a lot of good descriptions like the water was shallow eno ...more

Daniel: This was one of the best books I've read this year. Some parts left me not knowing until the
very end, some were obvious. Take how Mr. P. said he always stayed away from poison ivy, but he bought three bottles of calamine lotion as an example. I don't actually read the series in order. Anyway, happy reading!

This is the first chapter book that my niece and I read together, and she really enjoyed it. The language is age appropriate (she's now in second grade), and she enjoyed the characters and the relationship they have together. She also enjoyed the suspense of the mystery and enjoyed trying to figure out who the culprit was.

so, my youngest and I are driving about an hour 1 way to camp all week. We love listening to this series as audio books. Loved that this one had poison ivy in it so we were able to talk about it! LOL the theme fit right into camp and was a fun little mystery.

I really like these books for children! In this one I was reminded of walking through poison ivy myself, and itching, and calamine lotion.

We have a whole bunch of the A to Z Mysteries books in our classroom library. The books are somewhat popular with my students so I was curious to read one to see what I think about it.

I definitely recommend the series for younger elementary students and recommend including the series of books in the classroom library. The protagonists in the story are their age and the books are easy-to-read chapter books. I gave the book only three stars because that's how I rate it personally but I hope that y

My 7 - year old has finished the entire set of the A to Z mysteries (including all the super editions). I started reading them because I wanted to find out how good these mysteries are and after I started, I finished the entire set myself. This will be a common review for all the books in the set (so please forgive me if you see this repeated under another book).

First of all, the mystery part of the book is fairly simple for an adult, but I can see how it can keep a kid engrossed. The characters

The A-Z Mysteries series is a wonderful choice for children at a more developed reading level, since this is a chapter book. The writing is simple enough that beginning chapter book readers could challenge themselves to the text, and the exciting nature of mystery books would keep even fifth graders interested. Having a love for mystery books myself, I love this series and definitely would have loved myself and wish I had read as a child. I especially love how in this particular book, Ron Roy in ...more

This was another exciting installment in the A to Z Mysteries series. The kids are a lot less supervised than I'd expect, but I remember wandering around my town as a pre-teen, too. Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose find themselves in the middle of another mystery. Although it's not that realistic and I don't like the dangerous situations they put themselves in, it does make for a thrilling story. We've skipped around a little bit, but we slowly working our way through the alphabet!

A charming book for kids to enjoy. The 3 kids in the story are having a good time together on Squaw Island when they discover a hundred dollar bill! They believe more money may be hidden on the island. Overall, it's a fun mystery adventure.

*The only thing that may not be moral is that the story illustrates that kids can break and enter buildings, for the good of solving a mystery.

I read this with my son in 2nd grade for a book report. It was exciting, interesting and kept both of our attention. Little bits of the mystery were solved and small clues given until the answer was realized and the kids were able to tell the police and get the bad buys caught. I loved this kind of book when I was a kid and I am glad my son likes them too.

It was a hot July day. Josh, Dink, and Ruth Rose went to a picnic on Squaw Island. They think that there is treasure on the island so they searched around and found a hundred dollar bill. When the kids came back the next day they found out that the bill was fake. If you want to find out who printed the bill, you should read this book.

As always, the characters are consistent. This one was about counterfeiters, and I feel like they could have put more science into it, but they didn't. I liked that the bait attendant was named after the author. And a big welcome to shorty!

I liked the characters in this book. What I did not like about the book was the idea of someone trying to stay out of prison who belonged there. I like Officer Fallon, especially when he catches the crooks.

This book's title is deceiving, the book is not really about the island, but about what the kids find on the island. The island doesn't appear and disappear like I thought it would. Entertaining, a quick read. Kids eat this stuff up, typically.
