Best book when I was about 8

Zac Power has been my 2nd grade daughter's favorite series this year. It's full of action and adventure, new toys and gadgets, evil guys and exciting missions.

Zac Power's family works for the G.I.B.: the Government Investigation Bureau. Zac, his mom and dad, and his brother Leon all work to help solve international crimes in death-defying missions. In this episode, the first of four published in the U.S., Zac must track down Dr. Drastic, an evil mad scientist, before he sells Solution X to the w
Good. I'm reading these to my almost four year old son. He had to have these at the library and seems to love them. I'm not sure why, but he'll sit through the whole thing being read in one sitting so I can't complain too much. It beats playing hot wheels for hours or crashing monster trucks! :-)
I really like poison island I think it is fun and easy to read. I think you would have fun reading it. It is an interesting book that catches your eye when I saw it I knew I wanted to read it. I think you will also GOODBYE.

"Myrkkysaari" (Sanoma Magazines, 2012) aloittaa 12-vuotiaasta teiniagentista Zac Powerista (hah hah)kertovan kirjasarjan, jonka takana on yhteisen pseudonyymin taakse kätkeytyvä monipäinen kirjoittajajoukko.

Sarjan avausosassa ollaan trooppisella saarella, jossa Zac yrittää saada käsiinsä ilkeän tohtorin laatiman lääkekaavan. Seikkailun aikana joudutaan varomaan piraijoja, purkautumaisillaan olevaa tulivuorta, myrkyllisiä sammakoita ja kahta tyhmää tohtorin apulaista. Kaikki kliseet ovat siis kä

Fabulous read-aloud for beginner chapter book students. Paced perfectly, leaving students on the edge-of-their-seats. Great for girls and boys alike!
Gadgets, gizmos, and secret adventure... who doesn't love a good spy story? Where 007 and Alex Rider thrill older readers, Zac Power now brings the fun home to a whole new set of early readers just starting out chapter books. Young boys will love the fast-paced, funny antics with pictures and graphic novel-styled Zap! and Wow! exclamations. In Poison Island, Zac must rescue his brother and save the world from a mad scientist who developed poison Formula X. All that's left is to discover the miss ...more
Another book in the zac power series. In this book Zac is in the jungle on a lone island looking for a poisonous and dangerous chemical that could destroy the world in the hands of evil.with the island surrounded by guards,infiltrating the secret lair will not be as easy as he first thought.

I like this book because it is a book that relates to children of my age and has a cool scense of being a undercover operative trying to save the world.It also is not a large book and dose not take a long tim
Screening for my 7.5 year old before he reads the book so this is a "Mom" review looking for inappropriate things. :)

What's in there:
*The only thing I disagreed with in this book was that Zac's solution to find the Solution X was to mix up recipes with poison in them and try them. I just discussed with my son to ensure that he should never taste something if he doesn't know what is in it.

Overall, a fun spy adventure story!
Reetta Saine
Tämä on kyllä kohtuullisen järkyttävää kuraa jatkuvine päälauseineen. Mikään ei hätkäytä päähenkilöä, joka joutuu näennäisesti uhkaavien ja potentiaalisesti mielenkiintoisten tilanteiden armoille. Kirjailija kuvaa tätä kaikkea ulkopuolisen tyynesti jättäen lukijan hyvinkin yksin säälimään Zac Poweria, jonka tarinat on saatu laimennettua näin tehokkaasti.

Miksi pienille ei kirjoiteta kunnon toimintaa?
Zac Power is a cocky little guy, he is on a mission with his family against the nefarious Dr. Drastic. When his brother is kidnapped the stakes go up and Zac comes to understand the talents his brother brings to the team.

Think Spy Kids for early chapter book readers. Will read second book to see if the book evolves some (in terms of writing and character development) and can see some kids really enjoying this type of book,

Liityn haukkujien kuoroon. Väljähtynyttä toimintaa, jossa jokainen klisee on käytössä, mutta mikään ei vaikuta lukijaa. Menee silti vinkkauksissa kuin häkä, mutta omg mitä järkyttävää tuubaa on tämä.
Sorry, this one was not for me. One dimensional characters, ludicrous problems and solutions, simplistic prose. Come on, there have got to be better action/adventure books than this.
This is an action packed book. Any child who likes adventure will enjoy this book. The end of each chapter leaves you wondering what will happen next. It is an exciting story.

Aika kamalaa, mutta luettua tuli, koska kirjan helppolukuisuus miellytti. Kokeilen erityisluokan vinkkaukseen.
Kovin on epäjännää toimintaa kirja pullollaan, mutta sopii varmaan mukavasti pienemmille pojille. Vinkkaukseen.
My son says he loved all of it :) , learning to review books , I think he will have long way to go.

Even smart alec, older brothers that are computer geeks can be captured.
I do not have a desire to read book #2 or the rest of them.
