O is for Orange. . . .

An art thief is on the loose! Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose are visiting Dink’s Uncle Warren in New York City when several paintings are stolen from his apartment building. A trail of orange peels, a missing pie, and an orange hair are the only signs that someone was there. Do the kids have enough clues to catch this crafty—and hungry—crook?

Ron Roy's A to Z Mysteries are quick, exciting reads for kids. A Stepping Stone book intended for those in grades 2 to 4, it's a mystery that leaves enough clues for kids to follow along (and perhaps even guess whodunit).

In this episode (each book is based on a different letter of the alphabet -- great for reluctant readers...hook them on the letter A, The Absent Author and you've got a whole series for them to go through), Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose are in New York visiting Dink's Uncle Warren.

While attending a block party, an expensive painting is stolen from Uncle Warren's apartment. Who stole it? The only clues are leftover orange peels and an orange hair.

Evidence builds up as the story goes on and in the end, the kids have caught themselves the crook(s).

The book includes great illustrations by John Steven Gurney that will help keep those pages turning. Ron Roy's easy-going style doesn't talk down to kids.

This (and the other books in the series) are great for reluctant readers or any youngster looking for a little mystery.

The book A To Z Mysteries: The Orange Outlaw was a good book. It was where they had to solve this mystery and in the end the monkey did it. It is funny. This book is targeted towards kids and I don't remember alot about the book sense I read it along time ago. But I remember it was a very good book, by a very good author.

Josh, Dink, and Ruth Rose are visiting New York City, but their trip turns out to be far more than a tour of the Big Apple. An exciting evening at a block party ends with the discovery that a valuable painting has been stolen. Josh, Dink, and Ruth Rose spot clues, and, by devising a sting operation, they find the trail to the stolen painting before the police do.
