Book Description

Arno Eliot is always causing trouble—and when he disappears at the zoo, Dawn Bosco will have to solve a mystery to set things right
 
It’s almost the end of the summer, and Dawn Bosco is hoping for one last mystery before school starts. Then Noni, Dawn’s grandmother, has to babysit Arno Eliot, the worst six-year-old Dawn has ever met, for the whole week!
 
Dawn doesn’t want to spend her last week of summer vacation watching Arno. When Arno says he wants to go to the zoo, Dawn knows there will be trouble—and maybe a mystery, too.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Patricia Reilly Giff including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.


Editorial Reviews

Review

“In uncommon sympathy with her audience, Giff gets right to the heart of grade-schoolers’ priorities.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“Handling difficult subjects with sensitivity is Mrs. Giff’s specialty.” —The New York Times
 
“Just the stuff for reluctant or newly independent readers.” —School Library Journal
 
“Giff writes about the concerns of second and third graders with a sure hand.” —School Library Journal
 
“An affectionate picture of lower elementary students making their way through the ups and downs of classroom life.” —Booklist

From the Publisher

Oh, no! Arno the killer kindergarten kid is back. And Dawn Bosco's grandmother is his baby-sitter. How will Dawn and Jill ever have fun at the zoo with him along?

Luckily, Dawn. the Polka Dot Private Eye, finds a mystery to solve. Someone has lost a notebook with gritty white poison all over it. But Arno has disappeared. If Dawn and Jill spend all their time looking for Arno, will they ever find out who owns the book?

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, my kids enjoyed it. May 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this to my kids a few months ago, and they really liked it, and asked me to read it a couple of times after the first one. I don't have a TON more to say, Amazon just suggested that I review it along with a bunch of other books, and I thought "oh yeah the kids loved that one". Definitely worth checking out.
