A to Z Mysteries: The Deadly Dungeon by Ron Roy is a short chapter book that follows three kids visiting a writer whose castle is haunted with strange screams. As the three stay at the castle, they discover the mystery of the screams are hidden parrots being poached into the United States by a nearby fisherman. This book would be great for students to read in their free time and write journal entries about topics within it. The book explores the topic of endangered animal species, specifically the green parrots. An activity that could go with The Deadly Dungeon is to have students research about different endangered animals and the dangers of poachers.
