Customer reviews


'Agnes and Attie are awesome and their missions for SPEARS are bursting with humour and heart.' Sibeal Pounder

'Fast-paced and funny, this entertaining eco-chapter book with attractive, two-tone illustrations is ideal for young new readers with an interest in nature.' Booktrust

'A fun, adventure-filled book following a young environmentalist […] helping to protect and save endangered species.' ReadPlus

'This book was really enjoyable. It has a captivating story, with adventure and a moral of reminding us not to judge a book by its cover. It also has lots of interesting facts which were a great discussion point … We especially like a book with great pictures, which this had in abundance.' Toppsta

'Another great addition to this series … It is such an easy read for reluctant readers and a big win with a fabulous story at its heart.' Toppsta

'A great read for children that are just starting on longer chapter books.' Toppsta

'We loved this book. We found the pictures cute and helpful as they showed us animals we’d never heard of and the gadgets were cool to see too […] We would tell other seven and eight year olds to read this book, especially if they care about wildlife.' Books Up North

' Yes, I think children who love animals will love this book. It teaches you to love and protect animals, you also learn interesting things about them. It is very funny and exciting – you learn about the desert, and I like that a kid is fighting baddies to protect animals. I wish I could talk to animals and be friends with them, just like Agnes.' Wild World
