EJ12 Girl Hero: 1: Hot and Cold product reviews

The heat is on as someone seems to be melting the polar ice cap.

Special Agent EJ12 needs to crack the codes and keep her cool to put the evil-doer's plan back on ice.

That's the easy part. As EJ12, Emma Jacks can do anything.

So why can't she handle the school Ice Queen of Mean, Nema?

Or perhaps she can after all...

I liked the premise of this story - Primary School girl who doubles as a spy for a secret agency and goes on a series of adventures. The things she finds difficult to do at school - like facing down bullies - becomes easier after a mission from SHINE agency which inevitably teaches her the skills she needs to solve her real life problems (this theme persists throughout the series).

It was a very quick and easy read full of well-integrated facts (about Antarctica in this case), positive environmental messages and experiences that young primary school girls can probably relate to.

The codes are very simple in this first book, but they get progressively harder and each code is presented on a different page to the solution, giving the reader a chance to work it out for themselves before turning the page.

EJ12 is a very light, friendly read with none of the 'grit' or 'darkness' which has been creeping into other child spy books of late. All about saving animals, and the world, from SHADOW's 'dastardly plans', I found myself wondering in a couple of places if it was actually a spoof, but I suspect that for the target age group (about 7 - 10), it would go down quite well.

Product reviews for listing 2312: The Wonky Donkey
Author: Craig Smith and Katz Cowley

Product image for The Wonky DonkeyIn this very funny, cumulative song, each page tells us something new about the donkey until we end up with a spunky, hanky-panky cranky stinky dinky lanky honky-tonky winky wonky donkey, which will have children in fits of laughter!

There is much fun to be had by listening to the song and trying to predict the new word for each clue given. Craig Smith's song, The Wonky Donkey, won an APRA Silver Scroll Award in 2008 for Best Children's Song of the Year.
