About the Author:

Lauren Child burst on to the children's books scene in 1999 and has since published many bestselling and award-winning books, including those featuring the hugely popular Charlie and Lola, and the Clarice Bean series. She has won numerous awards including the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal and the Smarties Gold Award. Her books have been made into an award-winning TV series and have sold in many languages with runaway success.

From Booklist:

The sequel to Ruby Redfort: Look into My Eyes (2012) won’t disappoint readers who enjoyed the wit, irony, and creativity of Clarice Bean’s favorite girl detective. As the book opens, Spectrum agent Ruby is at dive school in Hawaii, confronting one of her few fears (claustrophobia) and ignoring the sharks around her. Back home in Twinford, you can be sure both these elements will resurface—along with pirates who are trying to kill her parents, messages sent over Muzak radio stations, a peculiarly potent sea monster, family legends featuring brave little girls and large gemstones, and the return of evil Count von Viscount. Our favorite characters are all here: the smooth butler Hitch, irascible but devoted housekeeper Mrs. Digby, and Ruby’s best friend Clancy Crew. Graphics include musical scores, maps that organize ideas and events, and Morse code. It’s as if James Bond met Nancy Drew met Harriet the Spy, and it works most effectively, complete with appendixes that discuss code breaking in music, text, and graphics. Three cheers for a determinedly wholesome mystery series that doesn’t talk down to its tween audience. Grades 5-8. --Debbie Carton
