Edie just loves science, experiments and conservation! And although her heart is in the right place, those around her don’t always appreciate her efforts.

In her latest adventure, we see Edie and Annie B team up to try and win the Cedar Road Primary Year 5/6 Eco Competition - with the first prize being the TEL-5X Telescope that Edie desperately wants! Edie is determined that they will win.

But Dean Starlight, returning to Cedar Road Primary after attending the Science Academy, has a different idea.

This is a wonderful story about believing in yourself, having a go, family, friendships and things not always being as they seem. Throw in some pranks and you have the making of a great read for those in upper primary.
