It all started on a day like any other.
(Now I gotta deal with this guy)
The sun rose. I had waffles for breakfast. I caught my dad SCRATCHING HIS BUTT. It
was a rerun of pretty much every day of my life. But late that night, EVERYTHING CHANGED...
One minute I'm digging through my neighbor's garbage looking for clues (long story), and the next minute I'm KIDNAPPED BY GOONS

This is such a fun book! ZEKE BARTHOLOMEW:SUPERSPY! is narrated by Zeke, a 7th grade zero average in everything.

This is a really entertaining spy thrill

I generally read books which appeal to my grandson and this one had me laughing at the imagination of this author. A book full of suspense that young people and perhaps some adults would enjoy.

Very clever and totally hilarious. If I still worked in an elementary school, I would definitely be book talking this one! Zeke wants to be a spy - and really, haven't most of us wanted to be one at some time during childhood? (Or maybe adulthood?!) Unfortunately, when he gets drawn into a huge mess of spies and villains and a plot to take over the world, Zeke discovers that real life spies don't have quite as much in common with the spies of novels and movies. Fortunately, he's a fast thinker a ...more

That was a good one, will be reading the next one. I wonder one thing though, about the Sparrow. I wonder whether he is going to get together sometime.
