Barnes and the Brains, Kevin and Tina Quark, are at it again. This time they have been called to investigate a sea creature in the pool at Miss Frost's. Miss Frost is very wealthy and though she has beautiful items and a beautiful house, it is neglected, and covered in dust and cobwebs. She spends all her time in her office, monitoring stocks, focusing on business deals and a whole bank of TVs and phones. She has hired the local geniuses to determine what she has been seeing each night in the pool. With the aid of the bathysphere, a submersible made by Tina Quark, they investigate the overgrown and algae- filled pool. They soon discover a crack in the bottom of the pool that leads to an underground river. But once they identify the creature as a
Hydrosaurs, Miss Frost wants it trapped. Tina thinks this is her chance for fame but Barnes thinks the dinosaurs are sad and comes up with a scheme to set them free.

This is book 4 in the re-released series by Kenneth Oppel from Harper Collins Canada. The 6 books, re-released this year, were originally published between 1994 and 2004 by Scholastic Canada.
