A brother/sister are in a park when lightning strikes a tree and frees a Merlin character. I seem to remember that there is a picture in the book of children on a tobaggen with the dog. Suitable for six year olds and up it would make a great guided reader for classrooms (128 pages) or perfect supplementary reading for children who are excited by the topic and want more material than is available in class.

Peter "Pete" Crenshaw, Second Investigator — Pete is an athletic youth who dislikes dangerous situations, but is nonetheless reliable as the "action member" of the team.
