Science super-sleuths Drake Doyle and Nell Fossey are back—this time in a never-before-published addition to the popular series! They’ve got an exciting collection of cases, too:  Are ghosts and ghouls keeping Edgar Glum awake? Have aliens invaded Mossy Swamp?  What’s the crooked game everyone’s losing at the carnival? And why is the town bridge going bananas? Kids will have fun following the clues—and learning about such real scientific principles as amplification, ecosystems, magnetic fields, and more.  Plus, budding Doyles and Fosseys will find actual experiments to try!

Review:

Praise for DOYLE AND FOSSEY, SCIENCE DETECTIVES:

The Case of the Gasping Garbage:

 “Move over Encyclopedia Brown, here come Doyle and Fossey, science detectives.”

Children's Literature

 

“Kids will enjoy reading about these young scientists who sometimes outsmart adults.”

School Library Journal

 

“Tongue firmly in cheek, Torrey bases the four problems and their solutions on basic, well-articulated scientific principles and techniques, reinforced by several related experiments or activities at the end to keep fans of this hardboiled series opener busy as they pine for the next installment.”—Booklist

 

The Case of the Graveyard Ghost:

Nominated for a 2005 Rhode Island State Children’s Book Award

 

“The main characters are believable and thoroughly engaging... Early chapter-book readers will be enchanted...”—School Library Journal
