Ruby Redfort: Look Into My Eyes
Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books
Ruby Redfort is no ordinary 13 year-old school girl. Blessed with an extraordinary talent for spotting things which others seldom notice, she lands an undercover job as a code-breaker for secret-spy organisation, Spectrum.
When both the Redforts’ furniture and their housekeeper go missing, mysterious 'butler' Hitch appears at their doorstep to offer his services. His arrival marks the beginning of a code-cracking quest in which Ruby attempts to thwart the plans of the evil ‘Fools Gold Gang’ to steal a priceless historic artefact.
The first of Lauren Child’s new mystery novels for older readers, Look into My Eyes surprises and delights as it takes us on an exhilarating adventure, bringing together witty humour, dastardly villains and a fabulous new teenage heroine.
