9780064443197: Detective Dinosaur Undercover (I Can Read Level 2)

When a detective goes undercover, it usually means they are in disguise, right? Not if it’s Detective Dinosaur!

The bumbling but bighearted star of Detective Dinosaur and Detective Dinosaur Lost and Found is back with three new silly cases to investigate. How this charmingly clueless gumshoe goes undercover—in the most surprising ways—is the kind of irresistible goofiness beginning readers love.

This third book of comic misadventures by James Skofield, brought to life as only the inspired illustrations of R. W. Alley can do, is sure to please mystery lovers and dinosaur fans alike.

About the Author:

James Skofield has written several picture books as well as the I Can Read Books Detective Dinosaur and Detective Dinosaur Lost and Found. He lives in Walpole, NH.



R. W. Alley has illustrated a number of books featuring Paddington Bear. He lives in Barrington, Rhode Island, with his wife, author Zoë B. Alley.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 1–In the first book, Little Bear's grandfather is cleaning his attic, and the activity provides both a teaching moment and an opportunity to explore the contents of his sea chest. Little Bear learns about the Marco Polo, and, caught up in the moment, the two share an imaginary trip in the boat, followed by a visit to the nearby docked vessel. Water-washed ink drawings display a series of family vignettes and Little Bear's activities while appropriate simple sentences and childlike questioning keep the pages turning. The two travel around the world through their imaginations, visiting a polar bear, panda, and koala “bear.” In the second book, the uncomplicated, practical soul introduced in Detective Dinosaur (1996) and Detective Dinosaur Lost and Found (1998, both HarperCollins) returns in a trio of investigations. As he follows instructions literally, “undercover work” translates to wearing layers of clothes, mysterious blobs under his naptime blanket terrify the Detective, and sunny skies bring an unexpected, puzzling dousing. The dino's genial expressions projected in colorful pen-and-ink and watercolor cartoons follow the action. Conversation and onomatopoeia spice up the text, presented in large font. The good detective always ends a chapter “Case Closed.” His innocent confusion creates entertaining problems with simple solutions. Solid additions to easy-reader collections.Mary Elam, Learning Media Services Plano ISD, TX
