Secret Spies

by Bob Wright


Meet Jo, Alex, and Jayden. They're 11 and 12 years old. No one knows they're spies except Granny Pickle. Oh, and Lulu, but she's a pig, so she won't talk. Join the Secret Spies as they solve cases at a haunted barn, a corn fair, a drama camp, a campground, and a clown wedding!

If you and your students liked the Leela and Ben Mysteries, you'll like the Secret Spies. There's no danger and no edgy themes, just a lot of light-hearted fun, written at one reading level above the Leela and Ben Mysteries.

    Reviews & Comments:

    "This book is good. It's FUNNY!"
    ---4th grade student reviewing Secret Spies Get Corny

    The short chapters are a great introduction to young children wanting to read "big" books. The characters portray positive character traits (helpfulness, respectful).

    Readers engage in reading comprehension, comparing and contrasting, and the gathering and synthesizing of facts to solve the mysteries.

    My 9-year old boy devoured these books, laughing and learning with each flip of the page!
