The Mystery of the Blue Ring

I received an electronic copy of this book from Open Road Media through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book is geared toward children beginning to read chapter books, so around first or second grade.  This book was originally published in 1987, and has been re-released for e-readers.

It's a great book about a second-grade girl who receives a detective kit complete with disguises from her Grandmother and sets about to solve some mysteries.  I remember wanting to solve mysteries when I was a young girl too, though there wasn't really a mystery, just an over-active imagination on my part.  But Dawn has a mystery to solve, a ring is missing, and the class thinks she stole it!  Dawn puts her detective kit to use when she decides to investigate the whereabouts of this ring, and she gets some help from a boy from her class, Jason.

Patricia Reilly Giff draws you in and keeps you going throughout this book.  I would highly recommend this book to any child, boy or girl who likes adventure and mystery.  You can find this book at Amazon for Kindle  or at Barnes and Noble for Nook.

  2. Hi Renee,

    This sounds like a wonderful book. I, also, love mysteries and pretended to be a detective when I was a young girl. My daughter teaches pre-school. We'll have to check this book out. Thanks so much for the info!
