    This is one of the least plausible stories in the A to Z Mysteries series. It's a fun and exciting tale, but not very realistic. And the word play with one of the characters in the story (Dorothy "Dot" Calm) is just plain silly. Reading about skiing and snow storms in New England was pretty refreshing as we sweated in the heat in Hawaii in August; you couldn't quite imagine the snow, but at least it didn't seem so hot! In any case, our girls love these stories and we are slowly working our way th This is one of the least plausible stories in the A to Z Mysteries series.

    The book Lucky Lottery is a very good book. This book is about 3 children named Dink, Josh , and Roth Rose and they have won the lottery but not yet they have found out that the lottery ticket is stolen but luckily they catch the crook ,and this time it is a woman, and she gets put to justice. This book changed my prospective of stealers. Although i didn't like them before now even worse. The book Lucky Lottery is a very good book.

    This is my favorite A to Z Mystery. Ron Roy dropped a lot of misleading clues which made the mystery even better to solve!

    Bad. - Nate, Ruth's brother, gets to play but it seems the author forgot Josh has twin siblings, not just a dog. - (view spoiler)[Not a single thought was given to looking at the security footage for the person behind Hector, nor purchase proof of ticket, only for the bowling team name. There was NOTHING about the footage going missing or getting erased either, which could have added tension.

(hide spoiler)] - (view spoiler)[Not one thought was given to the old people having a child or grandchild to tell (conspiratorially or casually) who would in turn have been capable of commiting the theft. (hide spoiler)] - When Josh draws the face of the suspect, there are zero questions or comments on face shape - a huge part of getting a likeness. - Why did Ruth have 3 kid-sized skis? There would have been two small sets, and two large sets, as she only has one sibling. - "Dot Com" might have been a cute name in print, but it was dumb and annoying in audio. - The author used a trail two books in a row now (yellow glass in K, now the silver bowties). Those also ought to have been a bigger clue, (view spoiler)[either them being gum wrappers would have been obvious, or they would have seen them getting folded when they were talking to the person who made them. (hide spoiler)] - (view spoiler)[The proof/confession ought to have been "I did not leave prints - I wore gloves," not Hector's fingerprints on the ticket which is dumb and unnecessary - she could claim he gave it to her as a gift and Hector is denying that he did just because it won big.

    (4.5 stars due to disagreement between the kids) My six-year-old daughter says: I liked it because one of their friends lost a lottery ticket and helped him get it back. My four-year-old son says: Same thing as my sister. ALL FIVE STARS! I liked it the best. Mom said: This one was a bit more slow for me. However, as a former English major, I'd like to say that this one has a very strong sense of place and setting. The blizzard, deep snow, and cold throughout this book was well written all things consi (4.5 stars due to disagreement between the kids) My six-year-old daughter says: I liked it because one of their friends lost a lottery ticket and helped him get it back.

    OK, honestly for me personally I thought this book was a bit cheesy, but it was read with my 8 year old daughter and she enjoyed it so that's what counts. She liked the silly names like Dot Calm and the clues that were left around. Once she put everything together she figured out who the real thief was and enjoyed getting to play detective as she read. Yes, it is set in a Christmas time setting, but we didnt care.........it's a book!!!

    Read these books when I was a kid and greatly enjoyed them, figured I'd give them a second read for kicks. I certainly recommend any young mysteries fan devote time to this series, it's certainly a grand adventure for a young mind, the imagery of Ron Roy's words and his settings and unique character descriptions and personalities really help kids imagine a whole movie in their heads as they read each exciting page.

    You have to let go of any sense of reality when reading these books. I know they're just kids books, but I would like to give kids more credit than this. The fact that this insanely large sum of money was on the line, and the person called three kids to help them is more than ridiculous. I know, that's the whole point of these books, that the kids are solving mysteries. It's just that this one seemed not something you would leave up to kids. I mean, 7 million dollars. Seriously.

    I was a bit worried about reading one about the lottery. Ron Roy made me really care about the winner, though. I hope Lucky uses some of the money to help his family and maybe buys his grandfather a nice gift.

    Interesting enough for the intended audience. Not very realistic. Loved the description of an atrium for young readers. Enjoyed the friendship between Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose. Thought Dot Calm was a fun, if outdated, name. Safe, clean children's book. Interesting enough for the intended audience. Not very realistic. Loved the description of an atrium for young readers.

I also liked how they asked someone if Josh's drawing resembled someone, and it was the girl who stole the lottery ticket!

    When someone breaks into Lucky O'Leary's house, and steal his winning lottery ticket, he asks Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose to help him locate the thief. The trio goes to work and try and track down the crook before they can cash in the winning ticket.
