Someone in Green Lawn has stolen the duck bank filled with money to create a bridge for the town ducks. Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose return to help the police catch the thief.

The short chapters, often ending with cliffhangers, will keep young readers turning the pages, as they try to put together the clues the three protagonists collect. The stakes are high enough that readers feel an urgency, but not so high that the book will cause fear or anxiety. The simplistic characterization of Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose may bore parents, but it allows children to identify something about each character and remember their traits from book to book in the series.

A to Z mysteries provide a starting place for children ready to make the transition into reading chapter books on their own. Recommended. ( )

I liked the book because it was about quicksand and a firefighter. He was a Seal in the army and he knew a ton about quicksand. There was a very weird piece of wood with letters ET CO on it. It was a very, very cool mystery. ( )
