Albert Hopper, Science Hero, Book 1:
"A ground-shaking, pulse-pounding journey to the Earth's core and back (with a few side trips along the way). In typically grandiloquent tones—"We shall be…WORMING TO the CENTER OF THE EARTH!"—froggy explorer Albert Hopper invites Junior Science Heroes (and niece and nephew) Polly and Tad on a voyage of danger and discovery aboard aptly named mechanical drill Wiggles . . . . Will leave readers eager to…GO AGAIN!" —Kirkus Reviews
