5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should have a copy 3 April 2013
Format:Paperback
Izzy (8) for [...]

This book is great for any girl that's always wanted to be a spy, superhero or even just live in the wild. Lauren Child has packed this book full of survival tips and tricks. Ruby talks (in American English) about times when she's used Spectrum (her spy agency) gadgets and normal things to help her survive; for example `the buckle'. If you're stranded in the middle of the ocean, just put the breathing buckle in between your teeth and you can breathe under water. Helpful, huh? Or ...how to survive in the desert and how to get out of a dull conversation with a boring person.

Find out how Ruby has faced these dangers and got out of them alive and how you can stay out of them. My mum got this on kindle for 79p on World Book Day. It was great value for money. Out of ten I would rate it ten because I'm an adventurous girl, but I still think even girly girls might like it and maybe even some boys may like it! I think it's probably for 7 to 15 year olds.

Verdict: I love this book and I think every one should have a copy!

I give this book 4 stars because it was good but not all of the survival tips were that useful as I probably won't find my self marooned on an island.
