Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose are trying to find out who stole Penelope's necklace. Penelope is a famous singer and was innocently signing an autograph when someone snatched her necklace off her neck! The detectives had many suspects who could have stolen it. While this is happening, Dink falls off a ride and he has to have an X-ray. How do you think Dink's injury will help them solve the mystery? Read the book to find out.

I like this book because it has many clues and it is very serious. Dink, Josh and Ruth Rose are awesome detectives. My favorite part of the book is when they found the crook. I like that part because I like the endings of mysteries and is tells you who did it. I also liked it because everything turns back to normal. The detectives were great because they were smart and good at finding clues. They rule!!

I would recommend this book to children in grades 2-4. This book has lots of clues and makes you keep guessing. It has many suspects and if you choose a suspect, it might not be them. I think you will like this book!!
