I like how Bones decides to try harder with numbers after he solved the mystery. A solid beginning reader.

I agree with Teresa - a solid beginning reader. Exceptional? Not so sure.

Bones was a great story, and I could see MANY beginning readers enjoying this book, especially boys.

This book is a great introduction to mysteries, and it would make a great introduction and discussion piece for this genre. It could be a fun book to read in a small group or to read aloud for children to talk about or write about.

I definitely agree with art4jewel. This is a book that boys especially will get into. And what an awesome introduction to mysteries for young children. It also has a good message for kids to actually try hard on their work, because if they really try they have more of a chance to succeed.

I agree with all the prior comments, this book is great for beginning readers. Boys can totally relate to it and especially enjoy it as a series.
I can not see it as an Exceptional book though.
