Battling the Dragon - why it only takes - One missing century

Image
surely, you all know by now that The Dream Detective Agency children's novel is subtitled, "...and the case of the missing century," but how can only one hundred years have such a phenomenal impact upon a) the whole narrative and b) the whole cutural identity of mankind?

DDA#1 is a kid's book, never forget that - but that doesn't mean such a project can't explore some of the more contentious suicides and murders of our time - namely our Missing Past.

Mankind is schism'd, or lost ( twixt'd and tween'd ) and it's the job of the Dream Detectives i.e. Dierdre Openhouse and Brody Belvedere, to rediscover the place (in time) where this happened to help redirect mankind onto his/her original course.

Along the way they'll encounter DRAGONS... of course.
