Overview

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?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
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

School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—The latest installment in the series doesn't disappoint, and it stands on its own. Once again, fifth-graders Drake Doyle and Nell Fossey solve a variety of mysteries using the scientific method and some sound research. Several cases are solved throughout the book, making it ideal for independent reading or as a class read-aloud. The humor is tongue-in-cheek, but silly enough for elementary students to grasp. Black-and-white cartoon illustrations punctuate the text nicely, and "Activities and Experiments for Super-Scientists" add an entertaining and educational touch.—Nicole Waskie-Laura, Chenango Forks Elementary, Binghamton, NY
