    Just finished reading this with my 9 year old and he loved it. He kept trying to guess who was the thief who stole the duffle bag full of money. I could see his mind working through details and clues with each chapter. Great book!!

    The mystery and characters were not bad in this book, but I found it more predictable. Unlike what impressed me about the first book, this one fell into giving details that clearly gave away the culprit by virtue of all details being important when there is no room for fluff.

    This one actually kept me guessing a little bit. While it might have been somewhat obvious who did it, there were enough red herrings to make you doubt yourself. Also, some nice thrilling moments in a giant T.Rex. A win all the way around for fans of the series!

    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. The characters 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. 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". 2) There are strong characters of both genders, the villains are of different genders as well, so the stereotyping is considerably less (there was a female pilot in one of the books that stood out to me) and I love it that girls reading the books have some good role models. I would always like more female strong characters shown ofcourse :). I'm sure my kids will be enjoying many more of the author's books in the future :)

    We're working our way through the A to Z Mysteries and although this wasn't our favorite, it was a good book. A former character from "The Ninth Nugget" returns with an almost-life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex that he and his friends are bringing to schools around the country to raise money for their museum. When their money is stolen, it's up to Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose to help solve the case. We're working our way through the A to Z Mysteries and although this wasn't our favorite, it was a good book.

    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.

    In this book, Jud Wheat, who we met in "The Ninth Nugget," comes to Greenlawn...and he brings a T-rex with him. One thing I love about this series are the strong friendships and positive child-adult relationships. If your 1st-2nd grader likes dinosaurs and mysteries, I think he/she will like this book.

    Eleanor says: I don’t want to spoil the book for you but there was a criminal. We figured it out pretty quickly. There were a lot of suspects. OK I admit it, there were a couple. But we figured the suspect that made the most sense couldn’t be the bad guy because it was too obvious.

    A to Z Mysteries- The Talking T. Rex written by Ron Roy is a chapter book containing 10 chapters about 8 pages each chaper. It is 85 pages in total. A friend Jud comes back to town with a surprise (a T-Rex) and the adventures start. The friends are lead on a who done it mystery. This book is for 2nd-5th grade, I think 6th grade would find it babyish. Since it involves a T-Rex I think more boys will be interested in it than girls.

    These are good easy reader books for maybe 2nd or 3rd grade readers. I think they can be enjoyable for older (4-5th graders) too, but the reading level is younger. The characters are cute and the mysteries aren't very scary. It is always good to read about kids in good friendships who are using their brains.

    So far, we've read the entire series in order. I read them to my 6 and 10 year old. They have enjoyed all of them. This book didn't seem to hold their attention as much as some. However they did still enjoy it. It was easy to solve. I think my kids had this one figured out almost right away. A fun series to share with children.

    This series is just average. We have read this one and another (White House White Out) and in both cases the kids get into unrealistic situations with dangerous grown ups at all hours of the day and night. If that doesn't bother you and your kid likes the stories, they are okay.

    The T Rex didn't really talk, so I don't know why they called it this.

    Read aloud to Emma and Will. Not nearly as good as the previous two books. Plot was mostly goofy, but the characters are still enjoyable.
