Hey, buster! Crack open this new series starring Ruby Redfort - Clarice Bean's favorite all-action heroine - and you will literally be on the edge of your wits.
Everyone knows that Clarice Bean is exceptionordinarily keen on the Ruby Redfort books. Now in her own starring role, Ruby, a genius code-cracker and daring detective, along with her sidekick butler, Hitch, work for a secret crime-busting organization called Spectrum. Ruby gets into lots of scrapes with evil villains, but she's always ice-cool in a crisis. Just take a classic screwball comedy, add heaps of breathtaking action, and multiply it by Lauren Child's writing genius, and what have you got? Only the most exciting new middle-grade series since, like, ever.
Thirteen-year-old Ruby Redfort is a genius super sleuth who's invitation to become a code-cracker for the exclusive SPECTRUM intelligence agency plunges her into a life of danger and intrigue. With her faithful sidekick and butler, Hitch, the girl finds herself hot on the trail of an agent whose mysterious death is sure to be explained in a set of files. Of course, nothing is that simple, and Ruby is soon in serious hot water. Ruby is actually a favorite of the heroine of Clarice Bean, the star of author Lauren Child's popular middle grade series, adding a meta-level to this punchy read. This is the first book in the Ruby Redfort series.
