Ada uses binoculars to observe and record information about the ecosystem of her new neighborhood and soon concludes that Ms. Reed's little dog, Marguerite, has been stolen. With the assistance of her new friend, Nina, and lots of cool science gadgets, Ada sets out to find the dog-napper in this first installment of a series designed to impart awareness and elevate interest in basic scientific processes. Science topics and terms are integrated into the story and explained in the afterword.
