Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grades 3-6--Move over, Encyclopedia Brown-Doyle and Fossey have arrived. Drake Doyle is the scientist while Nell Fossey is the one with the detective skills. This amusing duo solves four cases quickly and efficiently by scientific deduction. Each story is complete in two chapters. Humor abounds, most of it tongue-in-cheek, which most kids love. While the two protagonists are multidimensional, many of the secondary characters are stereotypical, sometimes on purpose, such as the Beauty Princess Extraordinaire. The black-and-white halftones and line drawings have the right touch of zaniness. As an added bonus, there are instructions for the experiments that were used to solve the mysteries.

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5. In the second Doyle and Fossey: Science Detectives title, fifth-grade sleuths Drake Doyle and Nell Fossey solve more mysteries involving scientific principles. Discovering why Zappy the cat isn't eating is a lesson in static electricity; a suspicious lake monster reveals a schoolmate's self-serving prank and the principle of buoyancy; catching a school vandal offers an introduction to fluorescence. Torrey uses lots of parenthetical asides and humorous commentary, and she does a nice job explaining scientific principles and vocabulary within the silly stories. Included are a few science activities and experiments, written simply and with light humor. The black-and-white cartoonlike drawings are more for entertainment than explication, but the book is a fast, easy read and fun way to learn about some everyday scientific principles.
