Ruby Redfort: Look Into My Eyes

Hey, buster! Normal life is a total yawn. Break out of boredom with Ruby Redfort – the super-awesome new creation from Lauren Child! Want to know more? Of course you do, bozo. So here’s the lowdown: she’s a genius code-cracker, super sleuth and gadget-laden special agent who just happens to be a thirteen-year-old girl. She and her slick sidekick, Hitch the butler, love to solve crimes and foil evil villains – and though their skills are sizzling hot, they always stay ice-cool in a crisis! In this very first mission, an anonymous caller sets Ruby a tricky challenge which leads her to the HQ of a hush-hush secret agency: SPECTRUM. They need her to crack a code – but the job spirals into a deadly adventure, as Ruby uncovers the dastardly plans of the Fool’s Gold Gang!

  • I really enjoy the Ruby Redfort series. It is funny and mysterious. I think Ruby is my favorite character because she is clever and witty. I have read the two books, Take your last breath and Look into my eyes, and hoping to read the third book. I would recomend this to boys and girls who are ten and over and love detective and mystery novels. : >
