About the book:

No Bones About Driftiss is a fantasy-adventure about a group of urban kids who discover, excavate and mount the bones of a very unusual dinosaur skeleton, and then-with some innovative thinking and backyard technology-move their creation to the local museum.

Subtly and vicariously, through the characters and action in the book, No Bones...meets and challenges the imagination of children, provides compliments for a job well done, and confronts personal dilemmas associated with sharing, responsibility, and cooperation. Also woven skillfully into this story are ethical and scientific considerations that recognize fossils as valuable social and scientific resources and identify museums as institutions where such resources can be properly deposited, studies, interpreted, and exhibited.

Twenty-seven black-and-white illustrations provide added depth to the characters and actions in the book.
