Jeffrey Bones is a detective (think Nate the Great) and solves mysteries. In this particular episode, he helps the clown at his friend’s birthday party find her missing clothes by using deductive reasoning. Kids learning to independently read will enjoy being able to read this story. The type is clear and large, the illustrations are simple and attractive (not too distracting), and the mystery might stump them. It just depends on how good their deductive reasoning is.
