Description of this Book

Wisecracking, code-cracking girl detective Ruby Redfort gets an unexpected taste of the action in her fifth fast-paced adventure. Ruby Redfort: You can count on her if you're between a rock and a hard place. A bite from a poisonous snake? Pass me the antivenom. Need someone to take the fall? You don't even have to ask. Stay one step ahead of trouble? Not so easy. There are always snakes to look out for, but they aren't half as poisonous as the rumors floating around Twinford. It's a lot to chew over. Will Ruby pull through in one piece? When trouble's out to get you and being smart is not enough, do you run like crazy, or is it time to brush up on your martial arts?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Child provides something rare and wonderful in middle-school fiction: the refusal to dumb down content, offering young readers a long book with multiple opportunities to learn something new (in this case, how to see in four dimensions). Long live Ruby Redfort!--Booklist Online The ingenious puzzles and humor, especially in dialogue among Ruby and her peers, remain highlights...Rewards await persistent readers: sly satire, quirky detail, and a smart, opinionated heroine brimming with ebullient self-esteem.--Kirkus Reviews

This is the fifth Ruby Redfort novel -- and the next will be the last! -- so the stakes have never been higher. Lauren Child has won numerous awards, including the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. She lives in London. Marcus du Sautoy, Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University and all-around genius, helped to create the codes and puzzles in the Ruby Redfort series.
