Description

Don’t miss A to Z Mysteries—alphabetic adventures that are full of thrills, chills, and cases to crack!
 
R is for Racehorse...
 
In the eighteenth book of the A to Z Mysteries—an early chapter book mystery series featuring strong boy and girl characters—Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose are excited to see Uncle Warren's new racehorse, Whirlaway, in action. But the night before the big race, the horse disappears! He shows up the next day, just in time to lose the race. Why is Whirlaway suddenly so slow? Can the kids figure it out - or is Whirlaway out of the winner's circle for good?
 
Each book includes a map and a letter from the author. Parents, teachers, and librarians agree that these highly collectible chapter books are perfect for emerging readers and any kid who love mysteries!
