    The Mystery at the Alamo is a short and simple book Some things are correct, such as the fact that there s a wax museum right across from the Alamo, but there is a glaring error about the ring According to the book, little Angelina Dickinson was given the ring by her father This is not correct The ring actually belonged to William Barret Travis and he gave it to Angelina This is such a well known story that it seems odd that the book would get it completely wrong The descriptions of the fi The Mystery at the Alamo is a short and simple book Some things are correct, such as the fact that there s a wax museum right across from the Alamo, but there is a glaring error about the ring According to the book, little Angelina Dickinson was given the ring by her father This is not correct The ring actually belonged to William Barret Travis and he gave it to Angelina This is such a well known story that it seems odd that the book would get it completely wrong The descriptions of the film seemed weird since it somehow mixed grown up Angelina Dickinson and Davy Crockett, something that is not at all possible Also, when the ring went missing every single person involved suddenly seemed to get amnesia about what had happened minutes earlier It was obvious who took it though why was a slight surprise , but because everyone forgot he had taken the ring and walked away from everyone else, the wrap up was delayed and the normally sharp characters looked a little dumb for a while Young children may like the book, but even my son 8 when he read it thought the ending was weird and not believable

    One of my favorite childhood series I read over a hundred of them The first 50 or so were in order after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on This particular book is a little dated with the winding the film camera reference.
