I read this a long time ago and enjoyed it very much, though it's an odd story. Amelia Earhart is snatched out of time as a child to be used by an evil scientist for his own experiments. I wish this was still in print! It's quite a switch from Sobol's "Encyclopedia Brown" stories.
Donald J. Sobol was an award-winning writer best known for his children's books, especially the Encyclopedia Brown mystery series. Mr. Sobol passed away in July of 2012.More about Donald J. Sobol...
