Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 writers says the 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 Dink 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!

Synopsis:

Let the adventures begin!

What do the Magic Tree House, Junie B. Jones, A to Z Mysteries, Andrew Lost, and Nate the Great series have in common? Not only are the main characters spunky and lovable kids whose exciting adventures have captivated readers for decades—theyre also all found in one place in the Favorite Series Starters boxed set. This is the first-ever sampler of its kind, introducing young readers to five favorite series through the first book in each. Kids will be clamoring to read more—and will have five different series to pursue—after theyve read the “favorite firsts” in this collection.

It's up to Dink and his two best friends, Josh and Ruth Rose, to find the famous writer--before it's too late!
