Sherlock Bones and the Natural History Mystery by Renee Treml

Reviewed by Melissa Beck (Library Staff)

In this silly graphic novel mystery, Sherlock Bones is the skeleton of an Australian bird who lives in the State Natural History Museum. When a giant blue diamond goes missing, Sherlock is on the case, assisted by his partner Watts (an inanimate stuffed parrot) and Grace (a street-smart raccoon interloper). The reader is also invited to assist in the case, as visual clues are cleverly sprinkled throughout the panels. The expressive art, slick humor, and way that Sherlock chats directly to the reader reminded me so much of the Bad Guys series. So far there are 2 books in this new series. Just plain fun.
