Look into My Eyes

Lauren Child

Hey, buster! Normal life is a total yawn. Break out of boredom with Ruby Redfort, the super-awesome creation from multi-million-copy bestseller Lauren Child… Want to know more? Of course you do, bozo. Here’s the low-down on Ruby Redfort: she’s a genius code-cracker, a daring detective, and a gadget-laden special agent who just happens to be a thirteen-year-old girl. She and her slick side-kick butler, Hitch, foil crimes and get into loads of scrapes with evil villains, but they’re always ice-cool in a crisis. In LOOK INTO MY EYES, we go right back to Ruby’s beginnings as an agent. When an anonymous caller sets Ruby a challenge, it’s not long before she finds her way into the HQ of the most secret of secret agencies - SPECTRUM. They need her help to crack a code but her desk job soon spirals into an all-out action adventure, as Ruby uncovers the dastardly plans of the formidable Fool’s Gold Gang…


Lauren Child’s eponymous hero of the popular Clarice Bean series is a fan of the literary character, superspy Ruby Redfort. As the story goes, Lauren Child received so many letters from keen fans wanting to know how they could get hold of the Ruby Redfort books, she decided to write them. The result is a delightful story about a genius code-cracker and undercover agent who happens to be a 12-year-old schoolgirl. Ruby looks like a normal kid, but inside her small body is the mind of a genius and a sassy comedian. She answers the phone with novelty greetings and wears t-shirts that say ‘bored beyond belief’. Naturally, a secret government spy agency recruits Ruby to help them crack a code and prevent a major theft. This is such a fun book that you forgive Child the occasional gap in the storyline. This is going to be the first of a series of six books about Ruby; young girls who enjoy the humour of Clarice Bean will particularly love them.
