The clever canine tricks them into entering a forgotten gateway that leads to the land of Gaia. There, they discover a wondrous world filled with majestic griffins, squabbling shell-less turtles, giant carnivorous plants and mischievous long-nosed snodlops. The three teenagers soon discover that they were summoned there to solve a crime - a crime that if they dont solve, will leave them stranded on Gaia forever. Time is critical, and theyre running out of it! Conduct Science Experiments and Solve a Crime! Readers will have fun solving the crime by conducting safe, simple, science experiments, using common everyday objects. The characters in the book make science easy by describing, in detail, how to perform the experiments as well as the scientific concepts behind them. Once the reader has completed all the experiments, he or she will have enough evidence to know who-did-it. Instructions for five forensic science experiments are included in the book. Readers can also share their results online by visiting www.PlatosPond.com. The Author Fred Andrews has been creating science mysteries for television and the Internet for over 10 years. He won a New England Emmy Award for Mission Mars and was nominated for three Emmy Awards for Zoo Sleuth. Platos Pond is his most provocative work to date, a science mystery that is written for the web-savvy youth of today. It combines the excitement of a fantasy novel with real-world science and the Internet. For ages: 9 and up Also available in British English: ISBN 9789076542324
