The M.C. Detective Agency: Chemical Solutions Required is a series of comic books that teaches chemistry to kids ages 8 – 108. This multi-episodic series envelops a cleverly concealed chemistry curriculum with the stories of twins, Poppi and Ray, who solve mysteries using chemistry. These sibling sleuths have many adventures, including traveling back in time to rescue the Radium Girls, attending a modern-day rock concert to save a vanishing Van Gogh, and swimming in a bottle of Chanel No. 5 to find the hiding aldehydes.

The readers eventually discover that M.C. is Marie Curie, hence the names Poppi (Polonium), Ray (Radium), and Granny Eve (Marie Curie’s youngest daughter). Each episode is roughly 50 pages and is softbound with a center staple (like the standard comic book). Stay tuned for more files!
