"When 11-year-old Sam goes to visit a friend of his family, Professor Ampersand, he has no idea what he's getting into. At first, it's just a fun vacation, with Sam getting to know the professor's niece Zara and nephew Ben and ogling all of the brilliant man's fascinating inventions. But when Professor Ampersand and his six colleagues are kidnapped by the evil Professor Murdo (who has plans to wipe out the entire human race) it's up to Sam, Zara, and Ben to rescue them - and save the world. Exciting, suspenseful, and peppered with comic relief, this fantastical adventure takes place in many different locales and is a real page-turner." January 2013 Kids' Books Newsletter
