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!

The set was purchased for my 7 year old granddaughter at her request. She read all 26 books within 10 days and "so happy to have the whole set" and "I can read them whenever I want". She was up early each morning to read before school and was her preferred afternoon activity when she got home. She even talked her parents into a couple of "reading at the table" suppers when she wanted to finish a book before bed. She is already an avid reader and library user.

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.

My kids really enjoyed the 26 book series. I bought this for my twin 8 year old girls and they really enjoyed being able to read a longer story that wasn't too challenging for them to read, but wasn't a simple book that they could finish in one sitting.
