In this super-edition, the adventures of Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose continue! Celebrating Halloween in Sleepy Hollow, NY, the threesome is in for a spooktacular time! Sleeping in the "Haunted House" cabin, going on haunted hayrides, and participating in a spooky carnival is just the beginning of their adventures! When someone burns down the hayride wagons and slashes the police mens car tires, the threesome follow the clues to solve the mystery, but it is not what they expected!

This book is a must have for a young reader's Halloween shelf. The story is good and the extra puzzle to solve finding a letter in each illustration to reveal a message at the end is great fun.

Recommends it for: children starting to read longer 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 Halloween theme and provides a little background information about The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. The story is fun and exciting (and a little dangerous, too. Our girls loved it and we read this book in two quick readings, with my younge...more

My daughter loves these books, this one especially because of the headless horseman. We both loved the way the town and original story were both incorporated. The story is about a mysterious sequence of events that happened one Halloween night. It took me a little llonger than it should have to figure out the criminals, but it was still fun. These books are getting a bit too predictable for my daughter because she was able to anticipate most of the end of the book, but I think she'll enjoy readi...more
From Owen: "I loved it"; "It's from when I started to like A-Z mysteries and I like scary non-fiction stories."
This is another fun little mystery by Ron Roy. It's aimed at kids so it's not too hard to figure out. There are some nice descriptions of a haunted hayride. There's also a message hidden, one letter at a time, in the pictures; even after reading the message, I still can't find some of the letters.

This little book reminded me of the Hardy Boys, just a little younger and without that fifties pizzazz (They drove cruisers instead of Jalopys). Lots of fun and getting my head slowly into the Halloween spirit! It seems to me that Halloween seems more about nostalgia than horror and I'm having a load of fun reading these kids books before I go to sleep!

This book is about a group of kids (Dink, Josh & Ruth Rose) that are on a Halloween adventure. They begin by taking a hay ride into the woods for a Halloween party put on by the policemen. A wagon is started on fire & they mystery begins. My 3rd grade class was into the book, but I thought it was somewhat cheesy.
Even though I grew up in the South, I have never been on a haunted hayride and after reading this book, I really want to, even at my age, I think I'd find it fun. This was a great twist on a famous tale, one of my favorite tales at that, and I loved it, I say this is a must read for any mystery fan.
These are great to read with your kids especially the Super edition ones as you have to find the hidden letters in the pictures throughout the story and solve the hidden message at the end of the story. This was a scary spooktacular read during the Halloween season, my son loves these books :)
My favorite is when they found out where the money went. I like when they found a way to get out of the hole under the barn. I liked Josh best because I have freckles and he has freckles. If he had brownish blond hair like me then he would look exactly like me. Review By Evan
good book
when dink and his friends hear the legend of the headless horseman and people say that they saw a ghost of the headless horseman they don't really know if there's a ghost of the headless horseman coming.
Read this one with my son for book chat. A "just right" book that he enjoyed. He loved looking for the clues!
