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? Watts...?

You might not be able to hear Watts, because he's technically a stuffed parrot, but I always know what he's thinking. And right now he's thinking: Can we solve the mystery of the missing Blue Diamond and save the Museum of Natural History, before it's too late?


Join Sherlock Bones and his side kick Watts at the Natural History Museum as they try to piece together the mystery of the missing Blue Diamond.

Follow them on an adventure through the museum as they try to put the clues together. Could it be the security guard? Or maybe the mysterious Grace who has appeared out of nowhere?

This is a fun, illustrated fiction title that is perfect for any readers aged 6-9.

Although it looks lengthy, the words are quite concise and the addition of the many illustrations and museum facts that are scattered throughout the story make it a great transitional book for those wanting to extend their reading from picture books.
