Bailey is very excited about the school trip to the Museum of Natural History. After all, he loves to dig up bones even more than an archaeologist!

And besides bones, there's lots of fun to be had with tepees, totem poles, and dinosaur skeletons. Bailey's classmates never know what will happen next: maybe that's why the museum guard becomes Bailey's special partner.

Bailey is a character that every picture-book-age kid wants to read about, and his humor and charm will keep everyone giggling.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Bailey at the Museum"Bliss's student-filled scenes recall the adventures of Ms. Frizzle's crew, with Bailey asking all the good questions. Bliss, who draws cartoons for The New Yorker, throws in choice asides for grown-ups." -The New York Times"Bliss strikes a note of hilarity with the combination of serious museum decorum and Bailey's inability to follow the rules, while dialogue balloons and visual details create a busy, engrossing environment." -Publishers Weekly"Readers who've already met the endearing Bailey will be glad to see he's back and look forward to further exploits; new acquaintances will surely search for his well-received debut." -Kirkus"[T]he colorful artwork creates a mildly amusing tone and offers plenty of details for children to enjoy. An amiable picture-book adventure." -Booklist
