Zac power. Spy camp Mission 7. Hardie Grant Egmont, 2010. ISBN 9781921690525.
(Age: Newly independent readers) Zac is off to Spy Camp to learn some spying skills. After setting off in a jet propelled wheelie bin and watching TV all the way, he lands at the camp. He finds out about maps and mazes, echoes and tunnels with his training buddy Leon, code name Agent Tech Head.
Young readers, especially boys, will enjoy this book, which contains interesting spy information as well as some incredible gadgets. Not only will they learn how to use the sound of echoes to find out if there was a dead end in the tunnel and how to find north using the sun, but they will also have fun imagining wearing the WOW boots, for walking on water.
The large print, illustrations and interesting text styles are a boon for emerging readers. Packed with interesting gadgets and full of adventure, this series should prove popular.
