Description

Can Vi not only foil the baddies but also do it in time to prevent her Mum’s brain exploding? Well, maybe, but she might need a little help from her friends - and the OAP branch of the Secret Service…. Although the humour and inventiveness alone make this worth a read, the thrills are absolutely genuine – especially when the tension is ratcheted up to 11 for the final showdown. And underneath it all there’s a comforting story about loyalty, friendship, blended families and love. A lot of my issues with Who Let The God's Out came from pacing, plot and characters, which I feel Vi Spy did so much better at. Vi is a great character who is super-relatable. She’s been sheltered her whole life, thanks to her over-protective mum, but now she has a chance to prove that she can look after herself. She is desperate to become a spy, and her mum’s reluctance just makes her even more determined. I love the relationship that Vi has with her Nan and the relationship that grows between her and the Sprouts.

Lektura tej książki przypominała mi oglądanie detektywistycznych bajek w dzieciństwie. Historia Vi jest wciągająca, zabawna i pełna zwrotów akcji. Vi Spy managed to outrage me on a whole other level, far surpassing the reasons I disliked Who Let The God's Out. Vi is failing at top spy school Rimmington Hall – even though the school motto is ‘Failure is Not an Option’. To make it worse, nearly-stepbrother Russell Sprout is an A* student. Worst of all, Vi’s shadowy nemesis Umbra is still at large.

The winners of the Diverse Book Awards 2023 have been announced, with one winner from each of the four categories announced: Picture book, Children... My only other big dislikes of the first book were the very cheesey, punny, personally not funny humour - which I respect is different for everyone, especially children.

Especially Siren. She was such a good character, and she didn't need to constantly have a punchline every other sentence about her warts or her portaloo-smelling breath or her refried bean toilet trips.I was talking to friends that if this turned out to be a drawn out lesson about respecting people's choices towards the end, I might let it slide, while still disliking the method. But no. Maz Evans began her writing career in journalism as a TV critic and feature writer. She is also the founder of Story Stew, a creative writing programme that visits primary schools and literary festivals around the UK. She lives in London with her husband and four children. Vi Spy: Licence to Chill is an entertaining thrill-ride of a book, with plenty of laughs along the way. This is a spy story unlike any I’ve read before, as it pokes fun at spies and villains. There is something in this book for all readers, from flatulent supervillains with stinky feet and super-spy grannies with gadgets galore, to dance-fighting parents and secret agent waiters. Maz Evans has clearly had a lot of fun writing this book!

Coffee house Caffè Nero has announced the 16-strong shortlist for the inaugural Nero Book Awards, recognising the outstanding books of the past 12... From the bestselling author of the Who Let the Gods Out? series; book 1 shortlisted for the Waterstones Book Prize. Bestselling author Alexandra Christo, author of TikTok sensation To Kill a Kingdom, introduces her new book, The Night Hunt (Hot Key Books), a dark... I can deal with a fart joke every now and again. A smelly, crude, or silly joke. It's not my humour, but I know kids love it. I get it. But this was a David Walliams level of crude humour which I just have never understood a need for. No thank you. It just feels lazy.Vi Spy is the first in a brand new spy series by author Maz Evans, who wrote Who Let the Gods Out and I can't wait for the next instalment.
