School Library Journal - 12/01/2021 Gr 3–6—Self-proclaimed "mystery-solving superstar" Sherlock Bones, stuffed inanimate parrot sidekick Watts, and chocolate-obsessed raccoon Grace are excited to see the new Reef to Shore exhibit at their home, the State Natural History Museum (where Sherlock, a frogmouth bird skeleton, comes to life when visitors leave). After overhearing schoolchildren mention a swamp monster, Sherlock and Grace decide to investigate. A late night visit to the new exhibit reveals strange sounds, mysterious puddles of water, and another mystery: a missing octopus. Luckily, Sherlock Bones is ready to crack both cases. This second series installment continues to interweave fourth wall–breaking banter and punny jokes with accessible discussions of scientific topics such as cryptozoology and octopus camouflage. Though expressive and engaging, the black-and-white illustrations may not appeal to those who prefer more colorful art styles. VERDICT An amusing, informative pick for middle grade graphic novel readers seeking mysteries; fans of the series will especially enjoy this one. - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
