Davey: "I liked the White Wolf. My favorite part of the book is when we got to see the white wolf. I don't like when the girls won the boat race."

Gordon: "The ending half of the book I liked, because there were cooler pictures. I liked when they got the wolves back, but I didn't like when they were stolen."

The white wolf is about 3 kids named Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose. All 3 of them are going to see their friend Wallis Wallace in Maine at her cabin. Once they get there they witness something terrifying, Wolf pups are stolen from their mother. They have to find out who stole them before someone starts suspecting they stole them.
I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars because I love mystery books. I liked how the author explained everything in so much detail. I also liked how he drew me in with a hook and

I like these mysteries because a lot of them deal with things kids might actually run into and how to handle it. In this one, the kids see some baby wolves stolen from a den they’re watching through a telescope. It’s very interesting and informative.

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

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is an interesting story that involves both protecting wild animals as well as understanding a little bit about disabilities. The three detectives visit the Maine seashore and have another adventure with their favorite author, Wallis Wallace. The plot wasn't very realistic, but our girls liked it anyway. Our girls have really enjoyed the books in the A to Z Mysteries series and look forward to reading the last few books.

This book is about Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose visiting Wallace Wallace, a famous mystery writer. They look in a telescope and see people stealing baby wolves from their den and taking them away in a boat. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose use a recorder to get the mother to listen to her kids crying. They try to find the babies using the recorder. I liked this book because it was interesting how the mom found her kids.

This is a good mysteries series for students starting chapter books and a great introduction to the mystery genre. In this book the kids have been watching a mother white wolf and her pups through a telescope when they see two people come and steal the puppies while the mother is away. Who stole the puppies and why...the kids are off to solve the problem.

As a youngin' I was always drawn to mystery stories and even now I am drawn to mystery stories but obviously a different age group. I think this is a great series to get young readers imaginations or problem solving skills moving by piecing clues and getting their own intuition going. This series would be great for read aloud and class discussion about the classic whodunit!

Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose visit Wallis Wallace. There, they meet Abbi, her daughter. The wolf pups that live there are stolen!
Can Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose find the people who stole the wolves and get them back?
This book is fantastic. I like it a lot. You should read this book because it is super duper interesting.

The culprits were two greedy people that stole the baby wolves to sell to a rich guy. They got fired and caught and the pups got back to their mother. I recommend this book to those that love mysteries. ...more

Geoff finished the last half of this book with Allston so i'm not sure what happened. Allston said the wolf ate the kids but I don't think thats how a kid book would end. Allston liked reading it with us so overall it was a good book to read.

My children really enjoyed this book in the series. Fun characters, fast plot, easy to read. If you've read all of the earlier books in the series, this book also has characters from other mysteries.

I read this in order to help my 9 year old daughter with a school project. She disliked it, and I can understand why.

An A to Z Mystery that we enjoyed because of the animals and young investigators.

I thought this was the best book out of the series. It didn't sound like it was quickly written like the rest of the books.
