    This book is just one in a series written for each letter of the alphabet. It is an early reader series (ages 6 to 10) with simple plot, dialogue, and one full-page black and white illustration for each chapter. The three main characters, Din, Josh and Ruth Rose, are third grade friends that band together to solve local mysteries in their small town of Greenlawn. The children are characterized as polite, honest, smart, and curious. In The Canary Caper, Ruth Rose discovers her pet cat is missing.

The trio soon find out that other pets in the neighborhood have mysteriously disappeared as well. The author introduces clues along the way so that the reader can join the trio in discovering the truth behind the pet-napping. The kids wisely discuss their theories with the adults and police--working together to solve the crime. All the books in the series are very simplistic but are good for practicing fluency, sight words, and introducing the genre of mysteries. Good for reluctant or struggling readers.

    Back to a mystery that has the reader running (mentally) alongside the juvenile sleuths. The premise is less forced than in book 2, and a sense of urgency (albeit a squishy for-children kind) keeps the pages moving. I appreciate that the police are smart and competant (unlike so many children's books) and although parents seem to only exist in the background to impose restrictions on the protagonists they are not worthless, invisible but not worthless. Interesting that in 2 of 3 books the girl is Back to a mystery that has the reader running (mentally) alongside the juvenile sleuths.

Interesting that in 2 of 3 books the girl is the one keeping the investigation moving, despite not being the main character. The sidekick - the kid that likes to eat - he is really pointless so far. It feels like his lines could have just as easily been Dink's except having two characters can make it more of a conversation without being weird. Both he and Dink, though, seem to have very little personality or anything to set them apart besides the dynamic of hero and not-so-reluctant friend/side-kick.

    I decided this children's series is the kind that is only good for kids and not for adults, so this is my last one. My best to Ruth Rose, she was the only interesting one.

    This was an interesting entry in the A to Z Mysteries series. Pets are stolen and Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose are on the case. There are a few surprises along the way, and it's a good story to read aloud. We really enjoy this series and are looking forward to the next book, The Deadly Dungeon.

    It is very interesting book. I like all characters. In this story, Mrs.Davies's canary was lost. His name was Mazort. One afternoon, when she went to feed him. His cage was empty! When all three kids heard this news that canary was not in his cage, all were in a shock and went running to Mrs. Davies'. What did happened to canary?! Was he really lost? Read out to find what happened!! 🙂🙂

    It little dull as boring. A somebody stole her bird, because Mrs. Davis's canary is disappear, her caged is plain as empty. Fred Little was robbed, he break to Mrs. Davis's canary of cage. Officer Fallon and Keene arrested Fred. After that Fred was work for clown of the circus.

    Two ratings for early chapter books, I think. Around a three for me; and these, I think, are a definite four for what they are and who their audience is. I really did some smiling through these and I was pretty impressed with several things (read the first three and will copy this to the others). They seemed to me like they would be really challenging and I liked the addition of the map of the neighborhood in the front.

    Ron Roy gives another great mystery with Josh, Ruth Rose and Dink. Laugh out loud as the kids track down who's kidnapping the pets in Greenlawn.

    Dink and his friends Ruth Rose and Josh are on the case of a missing canary, and Ruth Rose's missing cat Tiger. They then find out that 2 other pets in the neighborhood disappeared the exact same day. Who is stealing pets and why? The A to Z mysteries are super popular in our school and I have never read any of them, so I thought I would rectify that. A and B were checked out so I started with C. This was a clever little mystery. I like the friendship of the sleuths. The book is written timeless Dink and his friends Ruth Rose and Josh are on the case of a missing canary, and Ruth Rose's missing cat Tiger.

This was a clever little mystery. I like the friendship of the sleuths. The book is written timeless enough it doesn't feel like it is over 20 years old. And I really liked that the kids actually have a good relationship with the town's police officers contrary to most child sleuths (or adult sleuths). Recommended for lower grade mystery fans.

    A neighbor loses her Canary and then a rabbit goes missing and finally Ruth Rose loses her cat all while the circus is in town. What follows is a collection of robberies of these pet owners. Except for going to investigate to see a robbery before it happens I have to say I am mostly happy with the series. I'm not sure why these children don't have parents that are attuned to their kids whereabouts. It is very distracting as a parent at least in Encyclopaedia Brown the dad asks his son for help.

    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.

    Eleanor is so excited because Ruth Rose is a grandma. This will totally make sense when you actually read the book. We like this series but I think it’s a little weird in these early books that Ruth Rose screams all the time. That’s definitely not something that happens in later books and I’m glad because it’s actually really annoying. Why does the girl have to be the one that’s super loud and shrieks and shouts all the time?

    My six-year-old daughter says: I like it cause it's really really cool when they find the people who are stealing pets. My four-year-old son says: I like it. A policeman has a tiger for a pet. Mom says: I have no idea what he's talking about a tiger pet. No dangerous, exotic pets in this book :) These are fun read-alouds for us to read together.

    Pets are going missing and a circus is in town! I like how the kids do independent detective work but bring their findings to the police periodically. And the police already know some but not all of it, so they are shown to be competent but the kids are still useful. It's a good balance. The kids only do some stupid/dangerous thing over the course of the book.

    When several neighborhood pets go missing, along with tiger, Ruth Rose beloved cat, it's up to Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose to find them all. To make matters worse, there has been a rash of home burglaries around town as well. Could the crimes be related? It's up to the trio to discover what is happening in Green Lawn, and who is behind it all.

    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.

    My students loved this one! I particularity like that the mystery had a twist to it. It exposes the kids to this kind of excitement early and makes them want to keep reading.

    This chapter book was one of the better of the A-to-Z series we’ve read. This one had a much higher climax than some of the others we’ve read.

    I listened to the audiobook while on vacation with my boys. I liked this one less than the previous two. Not sure I will finish the series.

    This was okay. All of these books are super predictable, but I think probably great for early readers.
