The story starts when Annabelle and Harry’s pet dog Milly goes missing. The children sadly accept that the local pet thief has struck again. They have a list of suspects and evidence left behind by the thief. But how can they find out who it is and get Milly back? The children’s mum is a scientist working with DNA. She has a laboratory in the garden. The children realise they can use DNA and their mum’s laboratory to solve the crime. Annabelle and Harry become “DNA Detectives” and just like real life forensic scientists go on an exciting adventure to try and solve the case. Join them on their thrilling journey to collect clues, learn about DNA, see if they can find out the identity of the pet thief and bring their beloved Milly safely back home.

    “When beloved Milly is dognapped, brother and sister Harry and Annabelle are convinced their neighbour is to blame. Luckily, the pair have special skills – the-know how they have picked up from their scientist mum. So they set out to crack the case themselves.
    This ingenious romp (written by a DNA specialist) weaves fascinating facts about DNA and its forensic uses into the plot, while avoiding being patronising. Kids aged seven and above will adore it – while picking up scientific knowledge along the way”
