Description
Michael Buckley is at his comic best in this madcap new series sure to appeal to kids looking for a quick, exciting read.
Combining all the excitement of international espionage and all the awkwardness of elementary school, "NERDS," featuring a group of unpopular students who run a spy network from inside their school, hits the mark. With the help of cutting-edge science, their nerdy qualities are enhanced and transformed into incredible abilities They battle the Hyena, a former junior beauty pageant contestant turned assassin, and an array of James Bond-style villains, each with an evil plan more diabolical and more ridiculous than the last.
F&P level: V
Praise for "NERDS"
"An action-packed, tongue-in-cheek take on the world of superheroes and villains. The pacing is quick and the action is plentiful--kids will almost hear the sound effects as they read. "NERDS" brings a worthy message to the fore--that uncool kids can grow up to be anything but. Funny, clever, and thoroughly entertaining, this title should be popular."
-"School Library Journal "
"The unique format of this book, combined with the imaginative and playful storyline, will appeal to many readers."
-"Children's Literature"
