A is for A to Z Mysteries Book Series

My boys stumbled upon this series of books quite by accident last year.  When we went to turn in our Barnes and Noble summer reading sheets there weren't a whole lot of books left to chose from.

My oldest son picked up one of the super editions for free and enjoyed it so much he began reading through the series.

Hearing him talking all about it, my middle son proceeded to read each book as well.  This kept the both of them entertained for quite some time and while I knew the books were probably well below each of their grade levels they were having such a fun time and I loved that they had something in common to talk about.

Since this series works off every letter of the alphabet there is a 26 book set; however with periodical super editions this series was able to last both of them several months worth of reading!


My oldest son loves anything having to do with gold, machines, or boats so his favorites were The Goose's Gold

And The Yellow Yacht (though he did complain it was more of a sailboat and not an actual yacht)

My middle son loves animals so he particularly loved The Panda Puzzle

There are 10 super editions and while my boys read them all they did have their distinct favorites.

I'm not sure if Ian enjoyed Detective Camp so much just because it was the first book in the series he had ever read or if it was something else but he really enjoyed it.

Alec's favorites were Operation Orca and New Year Dragon Dilemma
