Mystery-writing Mimi, along with Papa, Christina, and Grant, visit a place few people have gone before – Antarctica! Scientists at the world’s c-c-coldest and windiest continent roll out an icy welcome mat for the group – but someone doesn’t want them snooping in his b-b-business! Bundle up and come along for the buuummmpppyyy ride in the oh-so-cool(!!) Bagglund vehicle! Play with p-p-pesky penguins! Slip and slide in ice-skimming skidoos! You’ll even learn how to make a “snotsicle!” Now, where are those missing penguins? (Pass the hot cocoa, please!)
The story will give kids the scoop on Antarctica including how the continent formed, how cold it is, who owns the continent, who wants to own it, the history of adventurers who went there and the wildlife, including penguins. Environmental issues are also addressed. Mimi is way too cold! Papa lands the Mystery Girl on an ice floe (that means it will float away!). Grant encounters penguins up close and personal. And Christina is intrigued by how you even survive here. There's plenty of history, science, and strange characters to make a mystery!
Like all of Carole Marsh Mysteries, this mystery incorporates history, geography, culture and cliffhanger chapters that will keep kids begging for more! This mystery includes SAT words, educational facts, fun and humor, built-in book club and activities.
