Review

Izzy is really excited to be picked to look after the new girl, Mathilde, but the new girl isn't quite what Izzy and her friends were expecting. Firstly, she's tall. Very tall. And her hair is short. Very short. But stranger still, she LOVES school dinners. No one likes school dinners. There's only one explanation… the new girl is a SPY!

Packed full of hilarity, excitement and fun, The Spy Who Loved School Dinners stands out from the bookshelves. The diary-style narrative and its use of capital letters for emphasis can be a bit distracting at times, but the story's engaging plot, simple illustrations and short chapters make it the perfect school adventure story for all young readers.
