(Age: 7+) EJ Spy School: Deep water is part of the EJ Spy School series and is a great first novel for girls aged 7+. At 43 pages long, the story is a quick read and gives budding readers a chance to move away from the 'reader box'. The stories use everyday vocabulary and a simple, structured narrative.
Emma Jacks (spy name Agent EJ10) isn't keen on swimming lessons at school and is relieved when called away on spy business. Unfortunately, she has to do spy stuff underwater. Armed with new spy tools and Bubbles the dolphin as a partner, EJ tests her new equipment. The new team work hard to earn their water spy badge but when Bubbles goes missing can EJ get over her fear of deep water to help save Bubbles?
