Eleven-year-old Jordie Marie Wallace has been waiting forever for someone to move in next door, so she is thrilled when Professor Reese arrives. Professor Reese has a laboratory in her basement and an extraordinary dog named Baxter—who seems to understand everything Jordie says. Jordie and her younger brother, TJ, begin walking Baxter and helping Professor Reese in the lab. But being lab assistants ends up being more than Jordie and TJ bargained for and leads them to a secret neither of them expected: a teleporter in Professor Reese’s lab! When the professor goes missing, it’s up to Jordie and TJ to use their smarts and Baxter’s magical powers to find her. Will they be able to save Professor Reese before it’s too late?
