As is typical for this age group, the "mystery" behind each story is pretty easily solvable, and is used mostly as an excuse to teach the rational problem-solving process of observation, interviews, and logical deduction; and as is typical of many authors for this age group, Roy often uses these stories to emphasize non-controversial moral lessons i.
Although I could care less as a grown-up and indeed, as a grown-up now understand why such a thing is done in the first place , I found it funny that these books could make a long-forgotten thirty-year-old memory re-emerge like that so profoundly. Nov 19, Deepthi Herga rated it really liked it Shelves: snugli-books. My 7 - year old has finished the entire set of the A to Z mysteries including all the super editions. I started reading them because I wanted to find out how good these mysteries are and after I started, I finished the entire set myself. This will be a common review for all the books in the set so please forgive me if you see this repeated under another book.
First of all, the mystery part of the book is fairly simple for an adult, but I can see how it can keep a kid engrossed. Th My 7 - year old has finished the entire set of the A to Z mysteries including all the super editions.
The characters are playful, around the same age as my kid now, so are very relatable. Yes, there are some characteristics which can be a little irritating, but they didn't really bother me too much as to take away from the stories. The other con is that these little kids are left unmonitored in many of their adventures I am not a helicopter parent, but it felt a little strange, especially when they are out of the country altogether.
That being said, now what I loved about the stories - 1 Most of the stories are based in different cities, and sometimes different countries, so the travel perspective is amazing. We, as a family, love to travel and every time the kids in the books traveled somewhere it made the story more exciting to me as well as my kid. My kid had comments on how they went to Key West and later Washington D.
C "just like us". I would always like more female strong characters shown ofcourse :.

The Yellow Yacht was a nicely, put together short story. It had a good plot and resolution altough the resolution was short and quick. There were many parts of thought were you could wonder, who did it. I woudn't call this book beautiful rather a smaller version of inturging with its story-line and how it prospers on to different thoughts. A strenght of the book is that its hard to lose interest.
