I was curious whether this series was a good recommendation for my 5-year-old cousin, who's currently reading The Hidden Stairs and the Magic Carpet (well, the whole Secrets of Droon series). I remember going through these mysteries at about the same time, when I was her age. The answer: yeah, they're pretty decent. Adventurous, with a touch of risk, plots where the kids always get into trouble but always end up safe and sound, and simple, fun characters. Ruth Rose ALWAYS wears only one color--w ...more

Just like all of the other A to Z mystery books, this book is great. I really like how the special editions are longer then the other books, they have you on edge more then the other ones. I love how no matter what, Dink and his friends always end up catching the bad guys, just like in this one.

My 7 - year old has finished the entire set of the A to Z mysteries (including all the super editions). The super editions are lengthier and more satisfying. 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 c

Another great mystery for kids from the A to Z Mysteries by Ron Roy.

The mystery this time wasn't so much the "whodunit" as the "what's gonna happen next". It was a nice change of pace in comparison to the Encyclopedia Brown books, which are usually the "whodunit" or the "how'd they slip up".

Ron Roy has written a fast-paced mystery novel that will delight children and keep them on their toes. The mystery-solving trio of Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose are at it again, this time in Washington, D.C. with some new friends—including the President’s step-daughter. Havoc breaks out when the newly formed five-some get kidnapped and held for ransom. It will take all of their wit, survival skills, and the help of a certain little dog to get them all out of this sticky situation alive!

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
We've really enjoyed the A to Z Mysteries series and love that Mr. Roy has written a couple extra "Super Edition" stories with the same characters. And what's even better is that Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose get to meet KC and Marshall from the Capital Mysteries series. We really liked that. We enjoyed looking for the hidden letters in the pictures, too, figuring out the special message. It's a really fun book and we will read more by this author very soon.

I liked this one less than the others in the series. It isn't the author's fault, but due to the events of 9/11, this is not even plausible. Basically, the President's step daughter approaches the kids by the gate to the White House and invites them in. And then they all get kidnapped. The kids reading these books now, would not even know a pre 9/11 world so the notion of a time when this might (implausible though it may be) happen does not exist. Characters are still consistent.

I liked the story it was a fast read and shows that kids can accomplish things, but I didn't like the fact that a child in a high-profile place took a chance that allowed her to be kidnapped. I felt that the children should have approached one of the adults in charge of protection to help them. I also felt that someone who was friends with a person who was unstable was allowed free access to our White House.

Chose this in conjunction with a trip to Washington DC. It was okay, but the kids get into situations throughout that are completely unrealistic. Yes, I know it's fiction, just pretend. But they get much closer to the presidential family than could ever possibly happen, and they get into an extremely dangerous situation that in real life could easily end in disaster. This is our 2nd A to Z mystery and based on that I rank the series as "average."

A to Z mysteries are the perfect starter mystery for kids. The detective is pretty clear, the mystery is also pretty clear, even the bad guy is pretty clear. But, there are still clues to be found in the book, so early mystery readers can do the work of 'trying to figure out the solution to the mystery.'

A few kids are out seeing the sights in Washington D.C. and come across the president's stepdaughter. Next thing they know the president's dog goes missing and the group of kids go out to try to find her. It is suspenseful and I feel that the kids will enjoy reading, if not this book, than others in the series.

The book "White House White Out" is a book about three kids who searches for the presidents dog when she goes lose. I chose this book because I read the whole series of A to Z. Another reason why I chose this book is because I like books that have mysteries and has many suspects. I recommend this book to people who read the A to Z series and to people who likes mysteries in a book.

Ron Roy's books are soooooooooooooo good!It's a story of how Ruth Rose, Dink,and Josh meet the president's stepdaughter KC and her friend Marshall. They get trapped in a van and the kidnapper uses KC's dog as a bait. It's a very interesting story and fun to read! You should try the series.

Ambitious book by Ron Roy. The only problem my daughter had was believing any parent would let their children wander around Washington D.C. without a chaperone.
