Andrew North Blows up the Worldby Adam Selzer
Synopses & Reviews
A dynamic and hilarious new hero for early middle-grade.
Andrew "Danger" North is no ordinary third-grader. He, his brother, Jack, and his father are spies. That is what Jack has always told him, and everything Andrew has learned from his dad’s favorite spy movies tells him it must be true. When Andrew comes across his brother’s graphing calculator, he’s sure it’s a communication device that will put him in touch with the secret spy headquarters. But instead of punching in a greeting to the spy society, Andrew accidentally punches in a code that might blow up the world! And if that isn’t bad enough, his math teacher then confiscates the top secret communication device and takes it to the mysterious Storage Room B. Now Andrew is on a spy mission to find his brother’s communicator and save the world from mass destruction. Will he be able to save the world?
While playing with his brother's calculator in the hopes that it will lead him to his secret spy headquarters, Andrew ends up entering a code that could destroy the world, thus when the teacher confiscates it and puts it in an unknown location, he must use all the skills he has learned to get it back and undo the damage he has done. Simultaneous.
Ten-year-old Andrew North believes his father and brother are spies, and spends his time in middle school preparing to join the family business.
