Sherlock Bones and the Natural History Mystery

by Renée Treml

Dear Reader,

Sherlock Bones is not your average detective, in fact, he’s not a detective at all--he’s a walking-talking bird skeleton on display at the local museum. He carries around a stuffed parrot affectionately known as Watts, who although silent, is the true brains of the operation.

The main character was inspired by a display of tawny frogmouth skeletons in an Australian museum. The skeletons have big round eyes, goofy expressions, and are absolutely captivating. (I recommend you run an image search on 'tawny frogmouth skeleton' to see what I mean.) I started sketching this skeleton getting into mischief at night in the museum and from that simple idea, an entire story grew. Proof that story ideas really do come from anywhere!

This book is perfect for kids who love graphic novels, mysteries or a good laugh. Email renee.treml@gmail.com to win a free copy.

Best wishes,
