(Age: Newly independent readers) Recommended. Zac, Code name Agent rock Star is in bed when he hears something. He discovers a black scooter under his bed and uses it to zoom away to Spy Camp. There he is paired with Agent Top Speed and goes into the desert to learn survival skills. When BIG agents leave them stranded, Zac uses all his talents to send a signal to Agent Outback to come and rescue them.
Children will be interested in the gadgets in this book, especially the scooter that Zac rides and the night glasses. Zac has to use his brain to work out how to get out of dangerous situations and think through ways of surviving.
This is an appealing series, sure to be of interest to boys.
