Grandpa Wilde has disappeared and it's up to Doc Wilde and his two kids to track him down. What does Grandpa's disappearance have to do with a mysterious photo of him beside a strange frog-shaped cave?

Doc Wilde is an adventure pulp in the vein of Doc Savage, whom Grandpa Wilde is a dead ringer for. If I was twenty years younger, it would quite possibly be one of my favorite books. How many YA books do you know of that feature dark matter, the Cthulhu mythos, and nanites, all wrapped in a Doc Savage style adventure tale?

My gripes with this book are minor and all involve the format. The two page chapters were annoying, as were the sound effects and word balloons inserted into the text.
