I wish I could win a seven million dollar lottery ticket for my very own. If you would like to win a lottery ticket, you will sure like this book, because the three best detectives in the whole wide world are in this book and they catch a real lottery ticket thief! The book is also set in winter, many kids favorite time of the year. Although my favorite A to Z Mystery book is The Absent Author, I think this one is pretty good, and I think you'll like it too.

My eight year old granddaughter had loved being read to at bedtime, and had become an excellent reader. However in the third grade she discovered electronic games on her mother's iPad. She no longer wanted to read stories, even Chaptr Books in her Advanced Reading class. This became a problem every evening when she didn't want to read 20 minutes as part of her homework. I decided to try combining reading with electronics. Many children's books from the 3rd grade AR List are listed in Amazon ebooks so I asked her to find one she would like to read and ordered it on my Kindle. She chose this book by Ron Roy and was soon walking around holding my Kindle, engrosed in reading it. She identified with the characters and their exciting adventurs. She now asks for more books in the A to Z Mystery series and I'm sure when I finish getting the rest in his series she will want books in other series by this author. Now, she has to be limired readind the Kindle so she can do her other homework.

My 8 year old son was a reluctant reader. It was this book that finally got him "hooked." He could not wait to read the next chapter. He has since read several more of the A to Z books and loves them all. I highly recommend this book and series for Second and Third Graders!

The Lucky Lottery by Ron Roy. It is Christmas vacation and snow is everywhere. The homebase for these books is Connecticut, where it snows. The beautiful snow on the cover is enough to attract anybody. And this book can be judged by its cover.

Anyway, on with the book. As Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose (the three main characters and best friends to each other) are outside playing in the snow, two visitors come over and tell that that their big brother, Lucky O'Leary want them to come over to their house because he needs to talk to them about something.

The three kids go over to Lucky's house. Lucky tells them that he had the winning lottery ticket, but someone came inside their house and stole it. He needs these three kid detectives to find his lottery ticket. Of course, the kids don't turn him down. They eagerly agree to take on the task. But inside, they wonder how are they going to track down a winning stolen lottery ticket, and where do they even start.

The winning ticket was bought and given to them by their grandfather, Hector O'Leary. They go to the Atrium, the elderly-housing building in which he lives to talk to him about it. They find out where he purchased the ticket, and who was on duty at the time.

Then they go to the store where it was purchased at, and talk to the clerk who sold him the ticket, Dot Calm. They ask her questions. Then they go on more sleuthing trips. They talk to people and gather information. But that's all I'm telling you. You have to read the book to find out the rest.

And believe me, this book is too good to miss.

Will they find the missing/stolen lottery ticket and its thief?

Highly recommended.

We really liked this book (Mom included). Josh, Dink and Ruth Rose worked well together to solve this mystery and catch the thief. We were all surprised about the ending. We wish we could cross-country ski all over our town! Ron Roy's stories always entertain us and we can't wait to get the next in the series - The Missing Mummy.
