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!
This book is full of the most essential info on how to survive a shark attack, a forest fire, wild animals, wild people and so much more It's extremely entertaining and the extracts form Lauren child's masterpieces are brilliant. It's defiantly a must read.
Absolutely one hundred percent amazing. I have read and own all the Ruby Redfort books and most of the classics bean ones to. I really hope that ruby Redfort gets her own tv show, move, doll range, lunchbox line, clothing line and pretty much everything else
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 or anything like that, however dealing with an angry or dull person might help me out!!!!!!!!!!:)
Let me just start of saying this book is amazing. At first I thought it was going to be really boring but turns out it wasn't.It's got all this great survival stuff in it and not just in the wilderness in school and the street. e.g Angry dog,Angry person and also Bullies. It has also got little snippets from look into my eyes and catch your death. Anyway this book is so good I recommend it to anyone who is interested in it.
