Sherlock Bones and the Natural History Mystery
A hilariously funny, action-packed mystery, starring the intrepid Sherlock Bones.
‘Hi there, I’m Sherlock Bones.
Who is Sherlock Bones, you ask? Well, I don’t like to brag, but my trusty side-kick Watts says I’m the greatest detective in our whole museum.
Don’t you, Watts?
You might not be able to hear Watts, because she’s technically a stuffed parrot, but I always know what she’s thinking.
And right now she’s thinking: Can we solve the mystery of the missing Blue Diamond and save the Museum of Natural History, before it’s too late?

Praise For Sherlock Bones and the Natural History Mystery
…Mystery aficionados should enjoy the chance to solve the case alongside the lovable cast of animal characters.
A nifty whodunit.
This book will reward young readers and please parents with the way it treats learning as play, the way it provides education and entertainment in equal measure, and the way it assumes its audience are intelligent and curious.
This is an offbeat, fun mystery that is absolutely perfect for readers who have enjoyed the Bad Guys, the Real Pigeons or the Mr Penguin books.
Treml has managed to bring a frog skeleton to glorious life, even the stuffed parrot has expression and personality.
A really enjoyable mystery and quite a substantial read at 272 pages. It does have the side effect of making you want to visit the nearest natural history museum.
