Plato's Pond

The Story What begins as an attempt to catch a stray dog quickly turns into an adventure of a lifetime for Watson, Crick and Rosa. 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 don't solve, will leave them stranded on Gaia forever. Time is critical, and they're 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.
