This is a realistic fiction short novel (one of the twenty six book series) about three friends, Dink, Josh, and Ruth who seek to solve their school's mystery. One day when Dink gets a paper cut and goes to the nurses office for a bandaid he notices the skeleton the nurse always has in her office missing. From that the principal holds a school assembly and says that whatever class finds/solves the mystery of the missing skeleton will get a free trip to the new local aquarium. As the student's begin to solve the mystery of the missing skeleton they find many clues and begin solving. One day they put all the pieces together and found the skeleton in a closet. However, the skeleton was holding a note saying "April Fools." As it turns out the principal played a fun prank on the whole school and everybody was going to get to go to the local aquarium. ( )

I always jump out of my seat whenever something surprising happened. A to Z mysteries keep me interested and always makes me want to read the whole series. In fact, I have read the whole series. You should start with the first one and not this one. ( )
