The Awesome Aquarium Mystery
This mystery takes boys and girls on a fabulous tour of the world's largest aquarium where they encounter Ralph and Norton (the world's largest fish!), a living coral reef, beluga whales, “jellies,” a very friendly octopus, a “4-D” movie, and more as they try to solve a mystery that lands one character in “the tank!” Readers also learn what an aquarist is, the mission of an aquarium, how one operates, how fish are fed and cared for, plus there's lots of fun and humor and a Built-In Book Club so you instantly have discussion questions and activities to do at home or in your classroom! Make your visit to an aquarium a real experience by reading The Awesome Aquarium Mystery before or after your visit...and if you can't visit, the book and activities make a great “virtual” field trip! Classroom cartons are available so a whole class, a whole grade, or the whole school can read the book and learn together.

A mystery is afoot, but whose foot is it...well, you'll just have to read the story to see! Learn zoo animal fact and trivia along the way!
