Secret Agent Derek ‘DANGER’ Dale by Michael Gerard Bauer
Published by Scholastic Australia
When Derek ‘Danger’ Dale is on the case…. Well, somehow the crime will be solved! Filled with a ghastly cast of villains, Derek Danger Dale must stop the madness as Doctor Evil MacEvilness comes up with a device that controls animals to do his bidding. It seems unlikely that Derek can even put a shirt on, let alone outsmart the evilness of Dr MacEvilness… and add to that, Derek gets trapped in a room with 4 of the most horrible and deadly creatures on earth, and add to that, the worlds most expensive diamond is in town, and a million butterflies, and the worlds biggest piece of petrified dinosaur poo just waiting to be stolen!
My 8 year old laughed out loud all the way through it. It was our first experience at reading a book like this, with a cartoon strip like images running through it, but we loved it. My son wanted to read it by himself, and would have been able to, but umm… I wanted to see what happened as well!
