I liked this book because they were helping a wolf.This serious is really good. ( )

In this addition to the long standing mystery series, we join Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose on their visit to Maine to stay with mystery writer Wallis Wallace and her daughter Abbi for the weekend. However, while they are there find themselves investigating the case of the stolen wolf pups from the Acadia National Park. The narrative introduces new readers of the series to the characters and existing plot without overwhelming repetition. The chapter length, vocabulary and use of illustrations follow the expected transitional chapter book form. The narrative introduces readers to the birth defect spina bifida and a character in a wheelchair and lightly touches on the problem of poaching wild animals. The narrative reveals clues gradually, allowing the reader to consider solutions to the mystery without slowing the pace of the story. Newly independent boy and girl readers would enjoy this series, but will likely outgrow it quickly. This book is recommended as an additional selection for a library already circulating the A to Z Mystery series. (Ages 6-8) ( )

This is an outdoor mystery for early readers, or as a bedtime story.
I like the plot. There are just a few illustratons in black and white , about every third or fourth page.

I have not read any of the other stories in this series, but if this one is typical the series could be a good one to help early readers gain an interest in reading. ( )

I liked it because it was about animals. They stole animals because there was a guy who wanted wolves as guard dogs. ( )
