‘I’m at that special age: 12. It’s one of my favourite numbers. 12 isn’t just the sum of 10 (the base of our whole amazing number system) and 2 (the only even prime number in the universe) but it’s the first number with 1, 2, 3 and 4 as factors. I reckon that’s so cool.’
Here’s a detective story with a difference. Eliot is twelve – and he thinks outside the box. He can’t help it. Numbers are his thing – and letters. So when ‘the biggest mystery that struck our school in the history of the world’ needs to be solved, Eliot is the one to call on. But this time the solution doesn’t lie in the real world (or in the ‘real’ world of the story). Instead, the solution lies inside the book itself – only it’s locked away in a series of puzzles and palindromes. Can you find the clues, solve the puzzles and find the culprit?
A new series that caters for the interests of the more gifted reader – children who find that the run of the mill books available for their age group are just not stimulating enough. Each of the books in the Cold Fusion series tackles a compelling topic in a way that is more demanding than the average book for 9 to 12 year-olds. The series includes both fiction and non-fiction, but in all cases the reader will be stretched with stimulating ideas.
