"A stormy night at sea has uncovered some long-buried secrets and surprises. Is that the mast of a shipwreck? A faded pirate hat? And what's that hiding in the sand? A mandible and a clavicle, phalanges and femurs, a tibia and a fibula -- could there be a set of bones scattered across the ocean floor? And who might they belong to? A jaunty rhyme takes readers on an underwater scavenger hunt as a comical skeleton tries to put itself back together piece by piece. Make no bones about it: this rollicking read-aloud will have young ones learning anatomy without even realizing it."-- Publisher.

A little spooky, a little kooky, and all kinds of entertaining. Help a shipwrecked skeleton put himself back together. Unlike most "body part" pictures books, this book uses the scientific names of the bones, as well as other fantastic vocabulary words, in its clever rhyming text. No bones about it, this is one great picture book!

This rhyming skeleton is looking for each of his bones, naming them in memorable ways. With cute illustrations that greatly lessen the "scariness" of skeletons, this picture book is an underwater adventure that children and their caregivers will each enjoy.
