Product description

Hey, buster! Normal life is a total yawn. Break out of boredom with Ruby Redfort – the super-awesome new creation from Lauren Child! Want to know more? Of course you do, bozo. So here’s the lowdown: she’s a genius code-cracker, super sleuth and gadget-laden special agent who just happens to be a thirteen-year-old girl. And although her skills are sizzling hot, she always stays ice-cool in a crisis! In this very first mission, an anonymous call leads Ruby to the HQ of a hush-hush secret agency: SPECTRUM. They need her to crack a code – but the job spirals into a deadly mission, as Ruby uncovers the dastardly plans of the Fool’s Gold Gang!

    A great book by Lauren Child.

    A book about a young spy called Ruby Redfort.

    Well worth the read, you’ll really enjoy it.

    The cover of this book is awesome – I like how you can only see Ruby’s eyes as it makes the cover look more mysterious. The green and pink add a nice splash of colour.

    This book is full of exciting adventures, murderous villains, perplexing codes and difficult missions. Ruby is meant to be thirteen, and even though she’s a ‘genius’, sometimes I thought she seemed more like an eleven year old. However I don’t think this really matters as some people don’t act their age, and that includes characters in books! My only problem with this book is that it was very slow-paced in places.

    I read this all in one sitting. It was a fun book to read, and I liked imagining how Ruby would get out of the dramatic, near-death experiences she would get herself into. The secret codes Ruby and her friend used were so good that I couldn’t decipher them – maybe it would’ve been good if the translation had been at the bottom of the page in small print or something.

    I used to read other books by Lauren Child when I was little, such as Clarice Bean and Charlie and Lola, so it’s nice that she’s finally written a book for my current age group.

    This book is fine for girls and boys aged 10-14, and could probably be read to a slightly younger child. I give it a rating of 4/5 – a point deducted for the occasional slow pace. Overall though, this is a fantastic book!

    I loved this book so much. It’s so amazing how Lauren Child went from writing a diaries type of novel to writing mysteries.

    This is a very intresting book. It had a good, strong idea behind it but I don’t think it was developed very well. Ruby wasn’t written very well and I couldn’t imagine her like I can with some characters.
