Detective Bones solves another school mystery using his excellent powers of logic. When his friend Not-Me Amy can't find her spinach noodle cupcake, it's up to Bones to solve the mystery.

Adler's style is as engaging as ever, and the brightly colored, deeply textured illustrations are an excellent match. Along with the sense of curiosity that goes with a Bones story, the book might encourage ...more

Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them
This is a silly story that is similar to another one by David A. Adler, Young Cam Jansen and the Zoo Note Mystery. It's a good book for beginning readers and shows how things can get misplaced when you are not paying attention or are in a hurry. We've really enjoyed Mr. Adler's stories and will look for more at our local library. This book also includes a recipe for spinach noodle cupcakes...our girls are not too eager to try this one!

This is an early- transitional- chapter book with plenty of full color illustrations, which make it appealing for younger readers. Although it is an early reader, it has an interesting story line which will likely motivate new readers. This would be a great addition to early elementary classroom libraries, as I imagine the rest of the books in the series.
