Dawn Undercover written by Anna Dale
Dawn Buckle is really a very ordinary girl. She is very rarely noticed as she walks to school. In fact she waits and waits at the corner for the crossing guard to notice she is even there. This makes her ideal as a spy. Yes, eleven year old Dawn, a student at Rustgate Primary School is recruited by a British secret intelligence agency to track down, and save, one of thier most important operatives who has gone missing.
First her parents must agree on Dawn's undertaking this job. They, of course, do - as it solves the problem of what to do with Dawn during the summer break.
Dawn is a quick study. The agent in charge of training Dawn for her first mission deems her "a natural." She scores very well on her "spy" test, and is soon off to do some sleuthing in the village of Cherry Bentley. It is not at all easy, with interference from a boy and his dog who tag along on the mission (it's his grandmother who is the missing spy). There are interesting spy gadgets - a seashell that is really a phone, a camera that looks like a raisen box, and a pencil that is really a micro-dot reader.
Dawn solves the mystery, catches not only one bad guy - but the "mole" inside the organization known as S.H.H. (Strictly Hush Hush) as well.
Dawn Undercover is a fun read - full of suspense and intrigue. Hopefully there will be more adventures to come about this young spy.
