3 Dinosaur Mysteries for Beginning Readers

  • Detective Dinosaur Undercover
    by James Skofield, picture by R.W. Alley
    In the style of Amelia Bedelia, Detective Dinosaur misinterprets the meaning of working undercover and wears every cover in his house - coats, blankets, even cushions - to work. Later, he becomes afraid of his own feet and believes it is raining when water lands on his head on an otherwise sunny day. The "mysteries" in this book are easily solved by logic, but will still get a chuckle out of their readers!
  • Bones and the Dinosaur Mystery
    by David A. Adler, illustrated by Barbara Johansen Newman
    Jeffrey Bones, a six-year-old detective, goes to the museum with his grandfather and Grandpa's friend, Sally. At the souvenir shop, they each buy something, which is placed in a green bag. After snacking on ice cream, Jeffrey realizes that his bag, containing a blue plastic T-rex dinosaur is missing! Using his detective skills, and his walkie-talkies, he tries to track down the missing toy. 
  • Young Cam Jansen and the Dinosaur Game
    by David A. Adler, illustrated by Susanna Natti
    Cam and her best friend Eric Shelton attend a birthday party. Upon arriving, they're asked to guess how many dinosaurs are in a jar. Later, when the winner is announced, Cam becomes suspicious that another boy at the party managed to guess the exact right number of dinosaurs. Using her photographic memory, she figures out just how he was able to cheat the system.
