Girl Detective #29 The Stolen Bones
Nancy, Bess and George volunteer at a paleontology dig in this story. One thing I learned is that fossilized dung is called coprolite - doesn't that sounds nicer than dung? Also, Nancy manages to locate some prehistoric claw marks in a dried riverbed which are museum quality. She just has a knack for making discoveries! This book is unusual in that most of the characters are introduced by their first names only, and we never do find out their full names.
