Can they figure out what's up before the creature gobbles Gabby for lunch? This and four more cool cases will have kids checking out the clues - and learning great science too, including facts about the life cycle of a frog and chromatography.

About the Author

Michele Torrey has a degree in microbiology and immunology. In addition to the Doyle & Fossey mysteries she has written many others books for young people. Barbara Johansen Newman's work has been featured in national magazines, newspapers, calendars, cards and more than a dozen books for children.


Gr 3-5-When one of their fifth-grade classmates finds a monster in her garbage can, science detectives Drake Doyle and Nell Fossey rush to the rescue. After discovering that the receptacle is in a warm place and smells like bread, they have the solution. The pair go on to save local frogs from a gruesome death on the highway, free a truck stuck under a bridge, and reveal the identity of another classmate's secret admirer. The first in a new series, this book will appeal to fans of short mysteries and kids with an interest in science experiments. Torrey's style is light and funny, and the stories move at a rapid pace. Newman's quirky drawings appear throughout the text. While readers may quickly guess the cause of the "gasping garbage," the other mysteries and solutions are clever, and are explained in the "Activities and Experiments" section. Kids will enjoy reading about these young scientists who sometimes outsmart adults.-Ashley Larsen, Woodside Library, CA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
