This is the story of three Grade 5 school kids who decide to form a club to solve mysteries after hearing a career day presentation by a city detective. The story is based in Brockville, Ontario, Canada so includes a little local geography and some Canadian history. An older boy in Grade 6 tries to bully them at every turn but is rehabilitated when accepted as a member of the club. Mary, the first President of the club, calls a meeting to get everything organized. The boys quickly learn how to submit motions (mostly by agreeing to Mary's leadership) and understand the reasons for following Robert's Rules for meetings. The story includes a fishing adventure, an introduction to the game of golf and discussions with a retired sea captain about mysteries of the sea. Finally, the young detectives get an assignment requiring investigation and an undercover lemonade stand.
Marcus Atkinson is a golf pro (not!). But his dad is convinced that Marcus has magic in his swing.
Ben has the Omnitrix. When Ben turns into Grey Matter and is kidnapped, Gwen and Grandpa have to track him down. How can they save him from evil Enoch?
