So when we found a series of books about a secret spy society of nerdy primary school misfits, it was clear we had discovered the coolest books around!
Combining the excitement of international espionage and the awkwardness of primary school, NERDS is a terrific new series from best-selling author Michael Buckley.
The series features five unpopular students who run a spy network from inside their school. And, with the help of cutting-edge science, these characters are pretty unique! There is the paste-eater who can stick to walls, the asthmatic who can blow up like a puffer fish and loads more characters that you will absolutely love!
Working as a team, these geeky yet special students become the latest members of an elite organization whose origins are shrouded in mystery and have included such members as Benjamin Franklin, Harriet Tubman and Bill Gates.
The latest incarnation of NERDS must battle an array of James Bond–style villains, each with an evil plan more diabolical than the last.
This September, NERDS is back with the second book in the series with more sinister villains, crazier schemes and the nerdiest group of superheroes around!
In this second outing for the junior school super spies, Duncan Dewey, codename “Gluestick”, leads the adventures. This time the group must fight a very unlikely villain – he still lives with his Mum. In other words, it’s the NERDS against a nerd!
These are really great books that even the most reluctant reader will enjoy – and we would know!
