This book was a humorous story of a boy and math tests. He goes on an adventure in search of his missing test. Each page is filled with short sentences that caters to those early-readers. Its easy to follow with short chapters that breaks up the story well. The illustrations take up a little part of the pages in order to aide the reader in understanding of the story.

This was a fun read for my oldest (7year old) as he read it to his little brother tonight. It is a chapter book that is at a level 2 for reading together, short sentences and simple dialogue. Bones the Detective is a cute little boy who solves mysteries! It's a fun read for a child.

Jeffrey Bones is a detective and also a student. His teacher, Mr. Gale, gave a math test and after Jeffrey handed in the test, it got lost. Mr. Gale was going to make him retake the test but Jeffrey wanted to solve the mystery. He found his paper but saw that all his answers were wrong because he rushed through the test. He ended up retaking the test and got an excellent.
This could be used for a small group to read together. They could make self to text connections because they had to take test

This book is not a multicultural picture book; it perpetuates stereotypes and bias. The teacher is African American and he is "in power" however he is portrayed as forgetful, lazy, and apathetic. While the European American student is thoughtful, resourceful, and aids the absent-minded teacher. I would discourage the use of this text in a classroom, there are many other books which can relay the same message

This is a good story, a fun mystery and a bit of a moral lesson about trying hard and doing your best work. Our girls enjoyed this story and we will certainly look for more in this series. We really enjoy David A. Adler's books.

I wish there were more Bones books, they are great mystery books for young readers. We started reading them to my kids at age 4 or 5.
