Chapter One

It is March 25th and after a long cold winter, spring has sprung. Juju & Izzy were playing "color of cars" in the front yard of their home.

"Red one!" says Juju.

"Look! Two white trucks!" yells Izzy as they watch the trucks drive pass their house.

"Wait a minute. They are not cars. They don't count," says Juju.

"Yes they do", responds Izzy.

Just then, a slow warm breeze blows by.

"Mmmm! What is that sweet smell mommy?" asks JuJu. "It smells delicious!" Mommy laughs, "Everything smells delicious to you, little girl. Those are the flowers we planted last year before Thanksgiving." She continues, pointing to the purple flowers by the fence. "They are called Hyacinths."

"Yes, we remember!" says Izzy and JuJu.

With her finger pointing up in the air, says JuJu, "Oh, Oh! I know."

"What do you know sister?" ask Izzy.

"Let's investigate those flowers!" JuJu continues.

"O.K." said Izzy, agreeing to participate in this new adventure.

"Well I guess we better go to the T.D.I. closet and gear up!" says mommy. "C'mon guys."

They ran up the front steps into the house to the T.D.I. closet. Izzy grabs the T.D.I. jackets and JuJu grabs the boots. Once they are dressed, mommy hands them their bag of tools and hats ... Swoosh! Out the door they run over to the location where the Hyacinths are.

Izzy takes the writing pad from his bag to write down their observations. JuJu grabs the magnifying glass.

"Color?", he asks.

"Purple with long green leaves," she replied.

"Shape?" he asks.

"Star," says JuJu.

"Like the starfish we found in Jamaica last summer?" says Izzy.

"Yep that's it!" responds JuJu.

Handing the writing pad to his sister, Izzy demands, "It's my turn."

"O.K. brother," says JuJu as she takes the writing pad from him.

JuJu asks, "Height?"

Izzy yells, "Wow! 10 inches!" as he measures the flower stem with his measuring tape.

They both move in closer for a smell of the flowers, "Mmmm what a sweet smell!" They say together with a laugh.

"LUNCH!" mommy calls from the porch. The two detectives pack up their T.D.I. bag and run inside for lunch.

On the way to school each day they admired the flowers. Bumble bees and butterflies flew by drinking the sweet nectar. Days turn to weeks, until one day while waiting for mommy to come home from work, they noticed the flowers were not there anymore.

"Hey where did the flowers go?" asks JuJu.

"They were there the other day. Maybe they moved," Izzy says.

"You're joking," says JuJu.

Daddy says, "Looks like it's time for the twin detectives to get back on the case. O.K. brother and sister let's go."

Up the stairs, they run into the house to the T.D.I. closet. Izzy grabs the jackets and JuJu grabs the boots. Once they are dressed, daddy hands them their bag of tools and hats. Swoosh! Out the door they run. Using their magnifying glasses, they look and look, and find nothing but dried leaves where the flowers once stood tall and smelled so sweet.

Juju says, "Brother we must find out what happened?"

"I agree sister, but how?" Replies Izzy.

"Well, mommy and daddy always remind us to ask questions of others if you want to find out something," she says. "So let's ask around."

"O.K. who do we ask?" Izzy says. Looking around the yard they notice a bumble bee sitting on a nearby rose bush. Together they shout out, "Oh I know! Let's ask the bee." Walking over to the bee, Izzy and JuJu could hear him singing a song:

"I love flowers, especially after rain showers. Flowers oh flowers the brighter the betta. Cause they have the sweet sweet necta."

"Excuse me Mr. Bee," says Izzy. "Did you see what happened to the purple flowers over there?"

"What? Who said that? Wow! Hey kid, you can speak Bee?" says the bumble bee as he uses his front legs to clear the pollen from his eyes.

"Yes, my sister speaks with animals and I speak with Insects." replies Izzy.

"Well, I'll be a bee's knees!" laughs Mr. Bumble Bee. "Bee B. Bee is my name."

"How do you do? My name is Izzy and this is my sister JuJu. So nice to meet you!" he says.

Bee B. Bee continues, "I do not know what happened to those flowers. I enjoyed weeks of great nectar from them. Then I went to the Branch Brook Park. It's cherry blossom season. When I came back today, nothing."

    Highly Recommended- you must check it out!!

    Well-written, colorful and interesting twin characters. Dr. Blake-Garrett combines the twins' adventures from their various surroundings to introduce science in a fun way. I think it is a wonderful book to spark a young child's interest; I was touched by the relationships and discussions as Izzy and JuJu "investigate". The Adventures of Izzy and JuJu: Twin Detective Investigators- The Case of the Missing Flowers is a must read.
