What a rewarding series of books! We have the entire series, and several of the other series by the same author, and we've found that the A to Z Mysteries thoroughly engage our first grade daughter.

The books are quite readable for young readers. Our first grader reads and understands what is taking place. There's not a lot of difficult language or concepts, and the author quite often takes the time to describe or define a term that might not be all that familar to a youngster. Our daughter as learned a bit of patience in this regard. She's eager to ask if there's a work she doesn't understand, but she now trusts the author to explain things in the very next sentence.

The mysteries are usually well crafted and interesting. They challenge readers to try to figure out "who did it" and often offer a twist or surprise in the end. The author never cheats - the clues are all there. And when kids figure out who did it before the end, the books remain engaging and fun as an explanation is offered as to why the deed was done.

A word of caution for parents - the children in these books are sometimes in precarious predicaments, but they always end up safe and sound. Nevertheless, if you're looking for a conversation starter, you'll find some within the pages of these books. Do the young detectives (there are three, two boys and a girl) always make the wisest choices while investigating an event? No, they do not. But there are consequences for those choices. The young detectives are never left in harms way for very long, but the author does make use of the "cliffhanger" at chapters' ends. These young detectives are quite self aware, and they are open and honest.

I have a grandchild who just turned 8 yrs old. She pours over these books. I couldn't get them quick enough to satisfy her reading so I bought the set. My 8 yr old grandson who doesn't like to read also loves these stories. I highly recommend these books.

My son had been reading a few of these books in his class at school. I decided to surprise him and buy the entire series. He absolutely loves these books. His is constantly reading a different one everyday!

I bought the set for my 8 year old. He does not like to read so we read the books together. We try to guess who the bad guy is once we have read all the clues. Reading with him is making reading fun for him. He is showing great interest in reading now.

My youngest is disabled so finding books that appeal to him-have action and story, but maintain clarity in the story is hard to do--but in this series--it's done well. Thanks!

This set was purchased for our granddaughter who is age 6 and is in 1st grade. She is starting to read chapter books and was having a hard time finding the right books to interest her. She read the first 2 books in 3 days and says she loves them! The next time I visit I am going to read them with her!

This series is a great read for our 4th grader. He really enjoys the mysteries and has enjoyed trying to solve before the book solves the "crime". We were given two of the books for Christmas last year and then had to read them all!

My son is in second grade and these are his favorite books. He would rather read these books than watch tv. I never have to twist his arm to read anymore, def a good buy.
