Ever wanted to be a spy?

October 10, 2014 | by

Happy Friday,

Have you ever had a secret hankering to be a spy?  Do you read spy thrillers to escape the everyday humdrum?  Well, do yourself a favour and read Dirk Daring Secret Agent.  It is about a middle school kid, Darren Drikowitz (code name Dirk Daring) whose secret spy journal is stolen by his step-brother (nicknamed Waldo because  he’s never aroundwhen there are chores to be done).  Waldo blackmails Darren into spying for him by threatening to publish the journal online and Darren reluctantly agrees.  Unluckily for Waldo, Darren also decides to spy on him so he can get out of having to do any more dirty work.  This is a really fun read with codes, little spot illustrations, side comments and lots of heart.  There is a message but it is subtly done and you come away having spent some quality time with good characters and a good story.
