The school setting and grisly science dovetail smoothly with the story of friends, enemies, girlfriends, and bullies. The Children's Mystery Book Challenge ... celebrate and share the mystery and magic of children's mystery books! I just wanted to write and let you know that the stumper I submitted, D222, was correctly solved.

Mystery purists will snort, but Lackberg may possibly have the last laugh — she's that good. Suggest that students look for the authors' techniques and styles in both the series and individual creations. But I don't know about the elephant and the monkey ending up in a cast. Well, I think I've solved my own Stumper--I'm almost positive that this is the book. The US title was Mirror of Danger, which was published in 1974 (year after the UK release).

There is enough meat to the story to appeal to remedial readers who need high-interest/low readability titles. Ashur Fine is much more somber than most of Sobol's work, and shows a deliberately gloomy or tragic tone. And when they revolt he fails to see why they are ungrateful to their benevolent father. They finally told him "that's enough" and to take his tools (etc) outside. The "24/7 Science behind the Scenes: Forensic Files" series is more gruesome than other forensic science series and will therefore grab more reluctant readers.

The solutions of both novels are formally similar in that they are "unexpected solutions", the real truth, and the fact that there is a "real truth", emerging as a surprise at the end of the book. The edibles mostly are simple egg-dishes, sweets, cakes and such, but Baked Bananas, Knickerbocker Glory, Fruit Fried Sandwich and Pizza Pie should stir the adventurous.
