Don't miss A to Z Mysteries--alphabetic adventures that are full of thrills, chills, and cases to crack!
A is for Author...
In the first book of the A to Z Mysteries--an early chapter book mystery series featuring strong boy and girl characters--Dink writes to his favorite author, mystery writer Wallis Wallace, and invites him to visit Green Lawn. Wonder of wonders, Wallace says yes! In fact, the famous writer says that the only way he won't come is if he's kidnapped. But when the big day comes, Wallis Wallace is nowhere to be found. The police think he just missed his plane, but Dunk knows better. It's up to Dink and his two best friends, Josh and Ruth Rose, to find Wallace - before it's too late!
Each book includes a map and a letter from the author. Parents, teachers, and librarians agree that these highly collectible chapter books are perfect for emerging readers and any kid who love mysteries!

I loved most of the A to Z mysteries. Liked them better than the newer Hardy boys, as there were often more than one suspect.

i didn`t enjoy it as much as Geronimo Stiltons.A little on the boring side,though.
