In this clever chapter book, the first in a new series, real science is seamlessly woven into four separate mysteries solved by Science Detectives Drake Doyle and Nell Fossey. No case is too big or too small for this dynamic duo, who never miss an opportunity to decipher anonymous love notes or unveil the true identity of garbage-can monsters. The snappy, funny dialogue and wacky scenarios are perfect for middle-graders, who will enjoy discovering the four science experiments at the back of the book. Each one corresponds to a case that Doyle and Fossey have solved-and will have readers scrambling for their own magnifying glasses and invisible ink!
