Children's Literature
When Grandpa, Bones and Curly the dog all head for the park, Curly disappears. Bones uses his detective skills to first finds his missing magnifying glass and detective bag and then eventually, Curly. This early reader also introduces a new character, Sally, who appears to be a contemporary of Grandpa. (Could Adler be setting up something for future stories since there does not appear to be a Grandma in the picture?) Sally provides some assistance, but it turns out that she was so absorbed in reading her paper that she did not notice that Curly was no longer sitting by her park bench. Bones comes to the right conclusion and the story ends on a very happy note. A Viking "Easy-To-Read" Level 2 book which features short sentences and simple dialogue. 2004, Viking/Penguin, Ages 5 to 7.
