Description

From Emily Calandrelli—host of Xploration Outer Space, correspondent on Bill Nye Saves the World, and graduate of MIT—comes the first novel in a brand-new chapter book series about an eight-year-old girl with a knack for science, math, and solving mysteries with technology.

Ada Lace—third-grade scientist and inventor extraordinaire—has discovered something awful: her neighbor’s beloved Yorkie has been dognapped!

With the assistance of a quirky neighbor named Nina (who is convinced an alien took the doggie) and her ever-growing collection of gadgets, Ada sets out to find the wrongdoer. As their investigation becomes more and more mysterious, Ada and Nina grow closer, proving that opposites do, in fact, attract.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 17, 2017 – Calandrelli, host of TV's Xploration Outer Space, brings a Rear Window vibe to this drily funny series opener, which introduces scientifically minded Ada Lace, who keeps tabs on her new neighborhood in a field guide while waiting for a broken leg to heal. When a dog goes missing, Ada investigates, aided by her exuberant new friend Nina. Kurilla's interspersed b&w cartoons help create tension as Ada tries to narrow down the suspects. Calandrelli smoothly incorporates numerous references to scientific principles (such as Occam's Razor) into the story, and the banter between Ada and Nina keeps things moving briskly. Ages 6 10. Author's agency: (for Calandrelli) Octagon. Illustrator's agent: Jennifer Rof , Andrea Brown Literary.
