****PUBLISHER: Greey de Pencier Books, Inc., 1997. ****AWARDS/NOTES OF INTEREST: ****SYNOPSIS: Recommend for intermediate grades. A fun, non-fiction book about crime science. Presented with mini-chapters, each page is filled with vignettes, information, pictures, and trivia about this field of work. A book to be read independently. ****LIKES/DISLIKES: A lot of great information, maybe even too much. A student reading this should have a lot of interest in the topic or else it will be boring. Illustrations are fun an appropriate. No graphic images, just a few skeletal x-rays. ****CLASSROOM IDEAS: This is not an appropriate book for read aloud, but makes for great high-interest reading. The text is somewhat difficult but even a struggling reader can take a lot away from this book. This could also be a support book for any kind of detective story we did in the classrom
