Why with the week of the king and queen missing, of all this time, is it the birthday weekend with the MC trio that the crime occurs? And why is there no public birthday celebration? Or even friends to invite other than foreigners? The police spoke English, too many characters defaulted to it. The children totally contaminated a crime scene and disturbed evide 15hrs in a small jet? The children totally contaminated a crime scene and disturbed evidence before the police could even look.
Come to think of it, as this series has progressed the trio has given less care or respect to not contaminating scenes or chain of custody. Jan 18, Melinda rated it it was amazing.

Perfect for an elementary school child, it is a quick read with just the right "who done it" twist. I was impressed by the scope of vocabulary it contained: lots of words related to sailing, scuba diving, and all things fish. We've already request A - The Absent Author from our library. May 07, Simon rated it really liked it. 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.
Dec 21, Katie Merkel rated it really liked it. As always, the book features good friendships and good child-adult relationships. Since Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose go to the small, made-up country of Costra, I would have liked more variety between Costra's foods and customs and America's.
Overall though, I enjoyed the story and think it's a good read for 1st and 2nd graders. May 17, Tara rated it really liked it Shelves: books. The kids are in a small foreign country visiting a friend and the bank is robbed.

I like the reasoning skills that are shown as the kids solve the mystery. Good stuff as usual. Dec 03, Emma rated it it was amazing. I could sure use some gold bars.

A friend has convinced me to try my hand this year at writing children's literature; but I don't actually know anything about children's literature, so am starting the process simply by reading a large selection of titles that have been recommended to me.
I've been told that these, the "A to Z Mysteries" by Ron Roy a book series, each named after a different letter in the alphabet are among the most popular "chapter books" these days among the elementary-school readers they're designed for so in other words, aged roughly 7 to 10 ; and indeed, after reading three of them myself U, X and Y , I can see that they touch on nearly every piece of advice I've now been given regarding writing for this age group, including a strong sense of humor, a quickly-paced but not too complicated storyline, lots of action and mystery, many scenes set in a school environment, and sentences that average around ten words.
Note, however, that these books don't adhere to one piece of advice I've been given, to concentrate on the ways that boys and girls interact at that age; although the three-person team of friends at the center of our tales is co-ed, they essentially all act the same, and eschew relationships with other children mostly to instead interrogate adults regarding the latest mystery they're trying to solve.
In fact, I was surprised by just how old-fashioned and even fuddy-duddy these stories sometimes are, given their immense popularity, happy proof that you don't nearly need to know about all the latest children's fads in order to write books that will appeal to them; they take place in a small middle-class pedestrian-oriented "Leave It To Beaver"esque town where even cellphones barely exist, and except for a few references to the internet could easily be mistaken for the chapter books from the s and '60s that I grew up on.
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. The characters 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 :. I'm sure my kids will be enjoying many more of the author's books in the future The Yellow yacht. Author:Ron Roy This book is fiction. The author wrote 26 books like this but on different topics. This book is realistic fiction and mystery.
I chose this book because it is easy to read and it is interesting. Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose are best friends. Ruth Rose likes to dress in all one color.
Dink's real name is Donald. Josh has freckles. The three kids go to visit a friend named Sammi. Sammi lives on an imaginary island named Costra. His family rules the tropical island. One da The Yellow yacht. One day the four kids were out playing and they hear an alarm go off. Sammi thinks it's the alarm from the bank.
The four kids figure out that all the king's gold is gone. It is up to Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose to find out who stole the gold and how they did it so fast that no one could see them. Then, a few days passed and they found that the gold was below the yellow yacht, people who stole it went to jail and Dink, Josh and Rose became heroes. This story was pretty interesting and short. Characters looked like real but I din't hear a lot from their friend who invited them to his house.
This story was good for mystery. When I was reading this book I thought to better not lose your gold. I recommend this book to age from 8 to Dec 23, Kathy Gunn rated it really liked it Shelves: children-s-lit. Roy, Ron. The Yellow Yacht.

Themes: mystery, friends, working together, travel Ideas: Very easy read and great introduction to mysteries for children. Good series for elementary age chapter book readers, reluctant readers. This would be fun to assign the class to each letter of the alphabet's corresponding book. Oct 05, David Arko rated it really liked it.
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.
The Yellow Yacht
For me I was able to keep reading nonstop till I got a cramp in my neck. I'd like to keep reading th The Yellow Yacht was a nicely, put together short story. I'd like to keep reading the series to see what other mysteries lie ahead. I've already read one other and it was pretty good. I find this book a nice little warm-up for any other readers who want to read big books but think they aren't ready. If you readthis book I hope you'll enjoy.
They swim, soak in the sun, and admire the bright yellow yacht that is moored just offshore. But the owners of the yacht are acting a little suspicious. Can Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose find out a connection between the robbery and the mysterious yellow yacht? Review: Eh. It was okay. I mean, I did like it, but I expected so much more.

Album number three of the American-Swedish collaboration tops the two brilliant first records easily. Only very few dare to record that and probably nobody masters it like that. Both thumbs up here! Very active in recent years - live and in the studio - the five-piece around frontman Steve Overland underlines their status as melodic icon impressively. A very good sound, an almost perfect setlist and quite a loud and heavily devoted audience make this live document something special. The Americans might not have one or two exceptional compositions but a more than solid hard rock record on their sleeve.
Influenced by blues and seventies rock, the Americans hit the spot. Probably the roughest and most metal-like Frontiers-output ever. Produced by Roy Z e. Pretty cool or rather hot record! AOR with with a very charismatic voice and mature songwriting is on the plate. Some of the songs do have a bit of a seventies-touch which matches the songwriting pretty well. It would be well-deserved! Mastermind Alex Frey b and the guys rock through the album is finest eighties style which is underlined by the omnipresent but a bit too steady keyboards.
Interesting band! Respect, Mr. Brilliant record! Although being a German band they sound pretty international due to singer Thorsten Bertermann. The lions are ready to break out!
