About the Author:

Michele Torrey holds a degree in microbiology and immunology. She has written the critically acclaimed Voyage of Midnight (Knopf Books for Young Readers, 2006), To the Edge of the World (Knopf Books for Young Readers, 2003), and many others.

 

Barbara Johansen Newman was a puppeteer and doll maker before becoming a full-time illustrator. She both wrote and illustrated Sterling’s critically praised Tex & Sugar (2007). School Library Journal noted that her “Rich, vibrant illustrations, like an explosion of color, capture the sights of the city, while meticulous detail depicts the all-animal cast and a wide range of expressions.” Her work has been featured in national magazines, newspapers, calendars, cards, and more than a dozen books for children.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-In this entertaining series entry, fifth-graders Drake Doyle and Nell Fossey solve four new cases using scientific methods. In the title story, the friends use deductive reasoning and their knowledge of bacteria to figure out why several people who attended a birthday party have become ill. Next, they come across some misplaced tern hatchlings and determine that habitat destruction has caused the rare birds to select a poor nesting area. When a snobbish classmate complains that she is being haunted, they discover that the ghost is really a slighted friend who is seeking revenge. Finally, Drake and Nell construct a pulley out of junk in order to rescue a pig that has fallen into a well. The Encyclopedia Brown-type characters and short and simple episodes will quickly grab readers, even reluctant ones. Humorous black-and-white illustrations depict the chaotic events. Several science experiments are included. Teachers may enjoy using this book to illustrate a science lesson, and Spy Kids-era readers will appreciate the idea that mysteries can be solved by science.
