Have you read any A-Z Mysteries? Well, I have and I want to tell you about The Jaguar's Jewel. Ruth Rose, Dink, and Josh go to New York City for vacation. When they visit their uncle's museum, Dr. Pitts says the real Jaguar's jewel has been stolen. Now the three detectives must go to work solving the crime.

I think this book is suspenseful and it makes you suspicious of many different people. Everybody who works at the museum is a suspect. When the detectives solve the crime the person who stole the jewel ends up being someone you may not have suspected. (Here's a hint: while you are reading, pay close attention to the flashlight!) You will not be able to put this book down! It is so exciting.

I recommend this book to second and third graders and people who love mysteries. If you read this book and like it you can choose some of the other great A-Z mysteries. They are all fun to read!
