From the Publisher:
1956: Freddy and Polly Emerson are enjoying a terrific summer vacation helping their father with his latest experiment. That is, until they disappear. The police investigate, but find nothing. Their father, Professor Emerson, has also vanished.
2010: Ben and Rachel Corder are sure it will be a long, dull summer until they discover an underground vault in their garden. The vault holds something incredible—two children who have been asleep for decades!
But “unearthing” Freddy and Polly leads to a whole series of questions: How will the two fit into the twenty-first-century world of cell phones and Whoppers? How will their bodies adjust after more than fifty years of being frozen? How is cryonic suspension even possible? What happened to Professor Emerson? And why does it feel like they’re being followed . . . ?
An action-packed adventure full of mystery and intrigue, Frozen in Time brings the past into the present with hilarious results.
