The Lovereading4Kids comment

This book definitely gets into the category of 'books you can't put down' and has therefore rightly been chosen as one of the Blue Peter Book Award 'Books I couldn't put down' 2007. It's a thriller but it's also full of humour; a funny and subversive look at school life and spy culture. Tasha, a girl obsessed with spies gets a tough time at school for being uncool and a big joke, until a new boy appears who says he IS a spy. But is he? Tasha is in for one hell of a shock.

Synopsis

The Bad Spy's Guide by Pete Johnson

Everyone thinks Tasha is a big joke because she is obsessed with spies. But when Henry, the new boy at school, accidentally mixes up his notebook with hers, Tasha has breathed her last ever bit of dull air. Henry tells her he is a teenage spy. And that he needs to use her room for surveillance on his latest targets.

About the Author

Pete Johnson

When Pete Johnson was ten, he wrote a fan letter to Dodie Smith – author of The Hundred and One Dalmatians. She wrote back to him and the two began exchanging letters. “She was the first person to encourage me to become a writer,” says Pete, who began sending stories to publishers at the age of eleven.

Born in Winchester, Pete studied English at Birmingham University and went on to try a variety of jobs before teaching English and Drama at a secondary school in Buckinghamshire. It was there that he wrote his first novel for teenagers which became an immediate hit. He was a film critic for Radio One before becoming a full time writer.

Pete's novels have achieved global success and he is now published in 24 translations. He has visited Europe to meet his readers as well as schools and libraries all over the UK. Pete inspires a special loyalty among his readers.

Pete says: 'one of the best things an author can do is show the reader he, or she, is not on their own.'
