Bones and his parents got Grandpa a special present for his birthday. But by the time they all make it to the party, the gift is gone. How could it have disappeared so quickly? Will detective Jeffrey Bones be able to solve the mystery and sing ?Happy Birthday? to Grandpa?
K-Gr 2 - The boy detective makes his fifth appearance. It is his grandpa's birthday, and Bones is in charge of icing the cake. The sticky substance ends up on his hands, in his hair, and all over his clothes. On the way to the party, he is in charge of his grandfather's gift. Even though it is only a card, his parents promise there is a surprise inside that Grandpa, his friend Sally, and Bones will like. When it comes time to open the presents, the card is missing, and it takes all of Bones's detective skills to save the day once again. With Newman's bright and cheerful illustrations throughout the easy-to-read and humorous text, Adler has once again created an enjoyable story.-Erika Qualls, Ela Area Public Library District, Lake Zurich, ILCopyright 2007 Reed Business Information
