EJ Spy School series. Lemonfizz Media, 2014. ISBN 9781921931529.
EJ Spy School - The Test is a short novel style book aimed at girls aged 7+. It uses large text and black and white images making it ideal for the reader who isn't quite ready for larger novels but wants more independence and 'grown up' books. Children will relate well to the theme - worrying about a test - and it would also link with the Child Protection Curriculum and the experience of changing or mixed feelings.
The main character is Emma and she loves school but not tests. Who knew, however, that a test could lead to something even more exciting - 'Spy School'.
The easy to read, quick moving story keeps the reader engaged and creates a strong female role model for young girls.
