The Preposterous Predicament of Polly Peel

After the sudden death of her scientist father, eleven-year-old Polly Peel, her older sister Paula, and their mother Pauline struggle to make sense of this tragedy. At the funeral, Polly reveals a surprising scientific theory for dad’s untimely “death” – a conundrum that only she, as her father’s trusted apprentice, can solve.
