If you’ve read the Clarice Bean books by Lauren Child, you’ll know that Ruby Redfort is Clarice Bean’s favourite book character. She’s a super brainy genius with terrible eyesight and loves to wear t-shirts with slogans like ‘What a total yawn’ and ‘Bored beyond belief.’ In Look Into My Eyes, we find out how Ruby got started as a secret agent.

Ruby Redfort lives her life by a set of rules, like Rule 1: You can never be completely sure what might happen next, or Rule 7: Never forget the little things – it’s the little things that will lead people to notice the big things. When a mysterious stranger calls Ruby and sets her a challenge, her rules help her to solve the puzzle. It’s not long before she finds her way into the HQ of the most secret of secret agencies – SPECTRUM. After sitting SPECTRUM’s Agency Test, Ruby is put to work solving a code that one their agents failed to solve before she died in an avalanche. The closer she gets to the truth, the more danger she finds herself in. Ruby has grabbed the attention of some of the world’s most evil villains and crooks, but will SPECTRUM be able to save her before it’s too late.

Ruby Redfort: Look Into My Eyes has got me hooked on Ruby Redfort and her adventures. Ruby Redfort is a very cool character and the sort of girl that everyone would like. She’s smart, fearless, funny and isn’t afraid to stand out from the crowd. She has quite an old-fashioned way of talking (she calls people buster and bozo), but that’s something I really like about her character and it makes her stand out. The way that Ruby answers the phone made me crack up every time. Ruby’s butler (or household manager as he like to be called), Hitch is one of the coolest butlers ever! He’s very mysterious when you first meet him, but he’s always there when the Redforts need him. Apart from Hitch, alot of the adults in the book are boring, stupid and just interested in themselves and their parties. I was wondering how a girl as smart and full of personality as Ruby had such dull parents.

If you love books full of mystery, with kids who are secret agents, and evil villains who want to commit the crime of the century, then Ruby Redfort: Look Into My Eyes is the book for you. As Clarice Bean says, ‘you will literally be on the edge of your wits.’ Recommended for 9+ 10 out of 10

Good book - not as well written as I imagined. Lauren Child didn't deliver as she did with Clarice Bean.
All in one a cool read.
