    I was seeking something easy and nostalgic to read with all the nonsense in the world right now, so why not jump back into some sweet middle grade reads I used to binge as a kid? A to Z Mysteries felt like just the book - it'll be easy, have a nice mystery and remind me of my school years. I thoroughly loved these books as a kid and I still enjoy them.

There are little twists and turns that you don't necessarily expect but are so good. They make you question what's going on the entire time and then give you a very reasonable ending. I really enjoyed The Bald Bandit since there was many ways the story could have gone. It set it up so you could have a good guess about what might happen but not be entirely sure until you got enough information (much like the little detectives we have in the story). I highly recommend picking this book up if you're looking for a light chapter book for young readers. It's fun! It also has some pictures if you pick up the right edition! Four out of five stars.

    Fairly predictable, but a good book to read aloud with children. Our girls really enjoy the A to Z Mysteries and we are eager to read the next one. We aren't reading them all in order, but so far it's not a big deal. Fairly predictable, but a good book to read aloud with children.

    Far less dynamic of a story than the first book, with a lot less stake and a lot more wondering why the trio was involved at all. It is interesting that in this book the main character is actually the one in the leading role; even if those were to rotate in the group I would have expected the main point of view character to take the lead in the first.

    I read this book with a third grade guided reading group. The kids enjoyed the story tons! As an adult, I found the book to be fairly boring. However, I'll continue to use it because kids can't get enough of Ron Roy's A to Z Mysteries. I read this book with a third grade guided reading group. The kids enjoyed the story tons!

    The audiobook is actually quite fun to listen to for all ages. Kids will probably get a great kick out of the twist at the end, but adults will likely see it coming a mile away. Even so, it was a fun distraction for me.

    my mentor teacher in the class that I am interning at was reading this book aloud to the students a little bit each day and I got the opportunity to read it aloud to them a few days.

Mysterious are great for read aloud in the classroom because they make the students want to keep reading to find out what happens. They love to predict who the "bad guy" is and argue for their reasoning. Many of the students in my class are now reading other books from the a to z mystery series. Once I saw how much the students in my classroom enjoyed the book I decided to read it myself because I had missed the entire beginning. I too enjoyed the book and would definitely use it in my own classroom for read aloud and also have the entire series in my class library.

I thought the book was boring because it wasn’t a very good book and to childish for me. The author should have made it more exiting and funny. Yes I liked the writing style. I thought the story wasn’t really realistic it had some funny parts but then the rest was too mysterious. This is the first book I have read by this author and no I haven’t read similar books. At first it seemed like a good book but then it got a little to boring.

    My son needed to read a mystery for an upcoming book report. We downloaded this from the library and he read the ebook in about an hour or so and I didn't quite believe that he'd actually read the whole story. He'd told me that he wants a good grade on this report so I took a little time to read the book tonight so that I know whether or not he got enough of the content to do well on his project. And since I took time away from my own reading tonight I figure I get credit for having read this bo My son needed to read a mystery for an upcoming book report.

It will be interesting to see if my 3rd grader wants to read any more of if he finds these to be too easy.

    Such a fun mystery book to read. I was intrigued by the authors purpose to write so many books that are aligned with the alphabets. I love the idea. I think these books are really good for children to read and have fun discussions about. The Bald Bandit is simply a tale about Dink and his friends looking for a videotape that is related to a robbery. A very easy read and awesome illustrations.

    Ha! Adorable! My 9 year old and I are listening to these as audio books in the car. We raced right through this story as we ran around doing errands. My 9 year old paused it non-stop chattering about what she thought would happen next. When a book can inspire so much curiosity and wonder in them, you know it's a good one.

    I really liked this book. It was about 3 kids trying to solve a mystery. It was a bank robbery mystery. I liked the part at the end when Lucky got the money. College costs a lot of money. Lucky will be able to go now that he has the money.

    I gave this book 4 stars because I enjoy reading about Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose finding mysteries. Someone told them they had to find a redhead boy. The redhead boy caught a video of the bandit. They looked everywhere, but they could not find him. They looked on Halloween night.

    This one was easier to predict than the first one. [Spioler alert] It was kind of cool that instead of getting $50 each they $833.33. It was funny how Josh said at the end- my folks would kill me if I burst up $800 on pizza and ice cream.

    Don't trust strangers because you never know what they really want. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose are good friends. One day before Halloween someone knocked the door, and he said that he was a detective searching for the person who robbed the bank.

The detective said that they need to find a boy that had red hair, and was in high school. They need to find the boy because he had the video where the person who robbed the bank appears. The kids started with the investigation of the boy that had red hair, and they find a bald boy who said that he has the video. It was true. The kids called the detective and said that they have the video. The detective was very happy and he told the kids not to see the video. The kids wanted to know who was the person who robbed, and they saw something that they never expected. I really enjoyed reading this book because I never expect what was going to happen on the end. I also liked how the author "Ron Roy" writes because he writes in third person so that way you know how all the characters feelings. I give this book a 10 because it was a very interesting book and has a lot of details and I felt that I was watching a movie. I recommend this book to all people that enjoy mystery and suspense.

    I listened to the audiobook on vacation with my boys. It was very predictable and I didn’t like how the kids purposely refused to tell their parents what they were up to. I also wish they had gotten some form of punishment for sneaking around. In the end there was at least some moral standards shown by the kids. Not sure how I feel about the series. Very short stories about 3 friends who sneak around doing things they know are wrong and dangerous. Specifically saying let’s not tell our parents.

I know it is difficult when dealing with parents and their children in stories. How does the child get to explore and solve problems without getting into trouble? There must be a solution for this common storytelling issue.

    I will be honest here- I remember this series from my childhood (I think I started reading these around third grade) and I liked them back then. Now, the storyline is simple and repetitive and highly predictable but I can't stop reading them. If I know it is a series, I tend to read the full series. It is not a bad series, it just that the simple storyline is boring there is nothing unique about the characters.

    Read these books when I was a kid and greatly enjoyed them, figured I'd give them a second read for kicks. I certainly recommend any young mysteries fan devote time to this series, it's certainly a grand adventure for a young mind, the imagery of Ron Roy's words and his settings and unique character descriptions and personalities really help kids imagine a whole movie in their heads as they read each exciting page.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It was a good book, I will not say that it was a lovely book. It was a decent book with a good story. The only thing I liked about the book was the sudden twist in the plot and the way the author has described the reaction of Dink, Ruth Rose and Josh when they get to know that Detective Reddy is the thief.

    This was pretty great, though I'm worried that something bad will happen to Dink, Ruth Rose, and Josh, if people keep on comin' in their places, uninvited. :) Also, I love how logical the three of them are, in this stage of their lives, and admire their generosity... Especially at the end of the book.

    Miss 6 enjoyed this. She listened to the audiobooks for A, B, C all on the same day. Miss 6 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes. We try to get different ones out every week or so; it's fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new & favourite authors. Miss 6 enjoyed this.

    Lauryn (Gr 3) helped with this review. She says she doesn’t want to give it away—there are lots of clues. Ruth Rose is very smart, and she figures it out. It was a strange mystery because it turns out differently than you expect.

    Read this to/with my 4 year old daughter and 7 year old son. My son says four stars, but I vote three so we are averaging at 3.5. Quick read with a twist of mystery. Would be a great first chapter series for him to read solo very soon!
