The 7 Professors of the Far North - by John Fardell

Thrilling and full of smart dialogue and lots of action! This book by John Fardell takes you on a rescue mission to a fantastic bad-guys lair in the Arctic, all to rescue six brilliant professors. The main characters are Sam, a mild-mannered but courageous 11-year-old English schoolboy, and his two new friends Ben and Zara, whose uncle is one of the captured professors. This book will appeal to adventure lovers, people who love snow, inventors and those who love reading about wild inventions, and anyone who loves a good story. The author is English (currently lives in Scotland) and this was originally published in Great Britain, so American readers may learn some new words along the way.

Sorry to have to correct you on one minor point; the author is not Scottish, however he does live in Edinburgh. John Fardell, in fact, grew up in a small hamlet called Kington, not far from Bristol and the banks of the River Severn in South Gloucestershire
