Reviews for A to Z Mysteries: H-J : The Haunted Hotel / The Invisible Island / The Jaguar's Jewel: Library Edition

School Library Journal Reviews 2008 January

Gr 1-3-- When the newspaper reports that there is a ghost in the Shangri-la Hotel, Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose resolve to discover who's behind the mysterious apparitions that have been frightening away all of the guests. Does this trio have a ghost of a chance in solving this mystery before the hotel must close? The Haunted Hotel is the first of three of Ron Roy's "A to Z Mysteries" (all Random, 1999-2000) on this audio collection. In The Invisible Island , the kids find a mysterious $100 bill in the sand when they go to Squaw Island for a picnic. When they return the next day, they discover the island is missing…or is it? A beautiful emerald jewel is not what it appears in Jaguar's Jewel . The discerning threesome have traveled to New York City and must discover who swapped a valuable emerald that was sent to Dink's uncle at the museum with a fake before he is arrested. Delightfully narrated by David Pittu, these tales will delight fans of the series as well as mystery lovers.--Amy Joslyn, Fairport Public Library, NY
