Boyz Rule bk 11
Matt’s birthday present is a pair of walkie talkies and to try them out he and his mate Nick decide to become secret agents. Their first mission brings them up against Agent Zit Face – #1 enemy and his cohort Older Teenage Female. This mission doesn’t go as planned and they have to consider their options. In the process of a mini rescue mission they uncover a real life crime that only they can prevent.
A fun story told with a bit of cheekiness, as found in young boys, and accompanied by black and white illustrations. The dialogue of the two main characters is set out like play text enabling it to be read by friends or acted out for fun, this gives these books (Boyz Rule series) a whole different dimension. Its short format and simple language make it a good choice for beginning readers. There are four pairs of boys in these stories and the covers are colour coded so you can tell which stories are about the same boys.
