Ruby Redfort Look Into My Eyes by Lauren Child

Hello! Adele here!Remember the books that I wished for a couple of weeks ago?

Guess what?!  I went shopping and found both of the books: Ruby Redfort Look Into My Eyes and Alice-Miranda at Sea.

Of course, I bought them immediately and I've just finished reading Ruby Redfort.

Here is my review!

Ok,  the story line is that there is a girl, Ruby, from a wealthy family and her best friend is named Clancy Crew. 

Ruby is a code cracking genius, and when a suspicious butler, Hitch, comes along she has a "hunch" that he's not a butler. 

And, of course he's not. 

Hitch is an agent for a spy agency called "Spectrum". And when Ruby finds out why he's there , she gets an invitation to join Spectrum...

I won't spoil any more for you.

It is a fantastic book, with lots of mystery and intrigue.  I'm really into mysteries at the moment.

Ruby Redfort is perfect for 8 to 13 year olds. But, of course, whether you're 30 or 6, you can read it if you really want to.

I'm just about in the middle of Alice-Miranda at Sea, so I will review it soon.

Ok, gotta go read!



  1. Clancy Crew-- that is funny!!

    Love the photo of you in the tree! So cute and fun. And a girl needs a book even in a tree!

    So glad you found your books and thanks for telling us about Ruby Redfort. I've been wondering about her since your wish post. Now I'm wondering what happened with Spectrum...

    I may have to read it even if I'm a bit past 30.


  2. what a wonderful review. I have never heard of this book- but after reading this review I know I have to read it! It sounds very interesting.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love reading up in that tree! I have to do a post about that soon!

    Thank you! It is a great book! C:
