about

A fascinating look at how scientists solve today''s mysteries and centuries-old "cold cases."

Savvy investigative work and scientific knowledge combine to answer perplexing questions and to uncover long-unknown truths. Using a trail of evidence - clues, careful observation, laboratories and new testing protocols - scientists reveal intriguing answers to such questions as: What really killed Beethoven? Are the Hitler diaries real or fakes?

The stories and sidebars show how scientists collect clues, analyse them, test theories, and arrive at solutions - or gather enough evidence to support further investigation. The cases involve branches of science as wide-ranging as astronomy and biochemistry to geology and physics.

These are gripping high-interest stories for middle-grade non-fiction lovers, with Canadian content throughout. A helpful index and glossary are also provided.

Former science teacher Larry Verstraete loves finding ways to get kids interested in science. Larry is the author of several popular non-fiction titles for Scholastic, including Silver Birch winners At the Edge: Daring Acts in Desperate Times and Survivors! True Death-Defying Escapes. Larry lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
