Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-4. When the skeleton in the school nurse's office disappears, Dink and his friends, Josh and Ruth Rose, try to find the missing bones. At first their only clue is an adult's footprint. Does that mean that one of the teachers at Green Lawn Elementary School is the guilty one? Why does a key suddenly appear with a coded note? The latest in the Stepping Stone easy-to-read A to Z Mysteries series is set in a happy school where the principal, the janitor, the teachers, and the kids are drawn into solving the mystery together. The solution is a bit of a letdown, but Gurney's black-and-white illustrations extend the fun of sleuthing at school, and new readers will enjoy the cozy story, which has just a touch of the shivers. --Hazel Rochman
