    A fun book in a fun series. My children (ages 6 and 9) both enjoyed this book. They've liked all of the books in this series so far, though some more than others. For an adult, the books are predictable and at times even a bit ridiculous. However, for children they are a lot of fun. I enjoy reading them along with my kids.

    Awful. Pandas are tightly controlled by China, who loans them out as favours and for diplomacy. They would not be in a petting zoo at all, and not even in a regular zoo in some little suburb. Josh's siblings are once again left out although Nate, Ruth Rose's brother, gets to tag along. The premise was so bad that I cannot even recall enough of the rest to consider if it had any value at all.

    This is an interesting, though not overly realistic mystery in the A to Z Mysteries series. A mother and baby panda are not very common in captivity and would not likely be placed in a suburban "petting zoo." Nevertheless, it's a puzzling mystery, with three suspects equally likely to have committed the crime. Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose solve yet another mystery, to the delight of children everywhere. Our girls just love this series and we are eagerly anticipating the next story. This is an interesting, though not overly realistic mystery in the A to Z Mysteries series.

    This book is about a panda that got stolen from the zoo. The panda was a baby panda and it just came from another country. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose try to find out what happened. They go to a swimming pool and they sit on a rug and they feel a trap door. They go inside the trap door and they go down the stairs and they find the baby panda. The man who stole it was mad that they found the panda so he closed the trap door and locked it. Officer Fallon came and opened the trap door.

    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.

    It was AMAZING . I could not get my eyes off the book . When I finished a chapter, I started a new one. When I look into the future, the first thing I see is that I am going to read this book again . You SHOULD read this book even if you are not a kid . The FIRST thing I will say when someone asks me "How was the 'Panda Puzzle' from the 'A to Z Mysteries'?" is that it is ADVENTUROUS .

    Any reader who enjoys solving a mystery will love this book! When the new baby panda at the petting zoo gets stolen, Ruth Rose, Dink, and Josh set out to determine who could be behind it. All three suspects seem to fit the mold. Plus, they only have until midnight, or Winnie the baby panda will be gone forever! Watch out for a plot twist near the end. This story is sure to keep readers guessing until the last second!

    This book was really adventurous and mysterious. I like it because I love animals especially pandas. The book was about a missing panda hidden in a secret basement near a swimming pool which was really funny. I enjoyed this book very much.

    Someone has kidnapped the baby panda from the petting zoo, and has demanded a million dollars by midnight for its return. That leaves only 12 hours for the kidnappers to be found. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose tries their best to locate the panda, and the kidnapper before the deadline passes.

    Audiobooks are sometimes tricky to review. My mind wandered a lot during this one. Because my mind was wandering, did that make the book less enjoyable? Or was the book less enjoyable and therefore my mind wandered more?

    The new baby panda at the zoo has been kidnapped and it's up the...kids?...to find it. Seriously this book is one bad idea after another. Here we have the grown-ups scrambling to pull together ransom money (do the police do anything in this town?) while the children interview suspects and find a likely place a panda would be hidden. That it's through some doors clearly marked "do not enter" and down into a sub-basement which is freaking DANGEROUS seems not to matter.

That it's through some doors clearly marked "do not enter" and down into a sub-basement which is freaking DANGEROUS seems not to matter. OK, kids, don't try this at home, ok? And since when do pandas stay where you store them? OK, trying to not let logic get in the way here. Was it a good adventure? Yes. The kids had a lot of chills and thrills. It was an interesting puzzle, and showed how we make assumptions too easily sometimes. I liked that they took the initiative and found the panda before the adults. So if I can quit being a grown-up for five minutes, I can give this book four stars. Sometimes it's awfully hard to quit being a grown-up isn't it?

    My niece wanted to do her book report on this book so we got to read it together. She loved Winnie the baby panda and was interested in the young sleuths: Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose finding clues to solve the mystery.

    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 :)

    Mystery books are the best way to stay occupied because it tricks the mind. In Ron Roy's the panda puzzle it has very interesting twists and turns. That is one good thing about the book. Another good thing about this book is the mystery part of the book. You never know what's around the corner. The last thing that makes this book great is the bits and pieces that are funny in it. Even when there is a mystery that needs to be solved they can still have a joke here and there. That is why Ron Roy's Mystery books are the best way to stay occupied because it tricks the mind.

    Another cute story in the A-Z Mysteries series, this one involving the kidnapping of a baby panda. It seemed like the suspects weren't set up quite as well as they were in some of the other books in the series, but it was still a fun read. I really enjoy reading these with my kids, and even though they are bit older than the target audience for the series, they still like them too.
