Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-In this fourth Jeffrey Bones mystery, the young detective visits the museum with his grandpa and Grandpa's friend Sally. They explore the dinosaur exhibit and then move on to the gift shop, where Grandpa buys Jeffrey a blue plastic T-rex. After a snack, they go to the moon exhibit, where the boy realizes that he no longer has his dinosaur. The plot and narration are simple and straightforward, and attentive children will find it easy to solve the mystery of the missing toy. Bones is a junior parallel to Adler's Cam Jansen but without the photographic memory. He is reminiscent of Nate the Great and, similarly, he narrates his own tale. Appealing cartoon caricatures are colorful and infused with humorous details like funky clothing, groovy glasses, and exaggerated expressions. A good choice for beefing up beginning-reader sections.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
