AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Bee is in her element working in the taxidermy department at the Museum of Natural History, but her summer job turns out to be full of surprises:

'A dead body in the Red Rotunda. A mysterious Museum benefactor. A large stuffed tiger in the Catacombs. A handsome boy with a fascination for unusual animal mating habits.

'And a pocketful of glass eyes.

'Can Bee sift through the clues to discover whether her mentor really committed suicide ... or is there a murderer in their midst?' (From the publisher's website.)
