This book is serious fun! It's silly, zaney and full of hilarity!

The pictures in the book are incredibly amusing, and go along perfectly with the story! The story is a little out of this world (a kid designing a microchip that goes on your tooth and make you a secret agent?!) but that's why it's so good! This is the type of creativity and imagination I needed in my childhood books! I've been waiting for this kind of awesome for years!

I'd say this book is a mix of secret agents, superheroes and

Whiz-kid, Nort McKrakken, has created something ingenious which will make crime-fighting easier – a C.H.I.P. (Computerized Heroic Incredible Person), able to transform regular human beings into superheroes. Nort’s father, Colonel Brock McKrakken, is in charge of security in the tiny town of Vortville, but has a habit of destroying half the city with each task. The colonel is obsessed with catching and imprisoning The Big Cheese – a supervillain so-named for stinking up the city with his Limburge ...more

‘Not only funny, but very exciting too. If you like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, you’ll love this!’ Wishing Shelf

When asked to offer feedback to the author of My Best Friend is a Secret Agent I thought, ‘OH NO! It’s a kids’ book.’ And, you know what, it is a kids’ book and, here’s the shocker, I’m 38 years old and I loved it. And so did my daughter who sat and rea

This book was very good. It's one of those books when you read that you can't put down you just want to keep reading. It's very action packed and it has a great story line great for your kids that are about to be or are in middle school.

I like stories with action. I’m author of the children’s middle grade books as well and my books are also full of action. But, I think would be better to little bit slow down this story. I very like combination of very clever and very stupid boys in friendships.

What a Cool Secret Agent or Nerd Saves the Town

Nort, the super smart kid of Vortville, creates his best invention ever. He programs a computer chip that transforms his best friend, Chip, into a secret agent. Of course his invention needs some tweaking at first, but in the end Secret Agent Chip......nah, I won't spoil your fun. And you will have fun reading this book. I look forward to reading the next one soon.

Ever wonder about a computerized heroic incredible person, then you grabbed the right book. This story is great for middle school aged children, but I think those younger and older will love to join along in a fun adventure. I love the author added in computers, crazy villains and friends that join together to solve problems. My grandchildren are going to love this book and many more by this author who knows what makes reading and adventure fun.

Recommends it for: preteen readers
Recommended to Jennifer by: Amazon
It's a cute book but more geared for the preteen crowd. The copy I have is partly illustrated, with a promise that if enough copies are sold the remainder of the book will be fully illustrated.

As an adult, I had to wonder how the chip stayed on Chip's tooth without being noticed or dislodged. The fact that only one thing could be done at a time seems to be a big design flaw--which is realized by the inventor, but trying to correct it seems to be put on the back burner.

A fun and interesting story about chip and CHIP. As well as finding a way to save a city from not only the evil geniuses but also the inventors father. It was very worthwhile. The book jumps from action to constant reminder that secrets must be kept or reminders of how dad doesn't understand. Made the flow a little difficult at ties but still an enjoyable idea.

I am sure children aged 8 - 11 will love this enjoyable piece of nonsense. It romps along full of highly unlikely situations but very amusing.

Pity that only half the illustrations have been added.

Secret agent man

This was kind of a fun book that most young people should enjoy. It has action, adventure and a bit of an underlying love story. Kind of a fun kids 007.

This book is perfect for a person who likes children books, this is slightly above that and slightly below young adult. This book is interesting and very creative but it is not such a good book for someone who wants to have a light and fun reading. It is pretty interesting and has a wild imagination but this book is a little confusing. Otherwise it is pretty good.

This book was a little good but not the best book ever. This book is about a smart kid that turns his best friend into a secret agent. This book is a free book so you can’t conplain. I’d say to read this book if you like easy to read comic type books.

Great Fun to Read

What a fun story! Nort creates a chip that turns his best friend into a superhero. Defeating bad guys isn't as easy as it looks in the movies. I loved all of the illustrations. They made the book even better.
