Chase Danger is a six-year-old super-spy. Actually, Chase was a super-spy since birth. His job: take out super bad guys who have super bad guy plans. Chase uses awesome spy gadgets like the “Chasin’ Danger Super-Spy Speeder”. In this book, Chase goes to stop his arch-nemesis, the evil Igor Fimple. Fimple teams up with the evil Mr. Crocs, another long-time enemy, and the villains try to take over the world with a mind-controlling sauce that they added to innocent pizzas at Chase’s favorite restaurant! Will Chase Danger, Super-Spy, save the world from Igor Fimple’s evil plans? Will he ever get a normal pizza again? Read the book to find out!
This is the first book in the Chase Danger Series. I’ve already asked my mom to get me the second book ( “Pirates of Pineapple Island” ) because I liked this one so much! OK, it’s kind of hard to imagine a six-year-old kid doing all this stuff, but it is a fun story! It is a picture book with a lot of action and adventure. There is some comic type violence, but only Chase beating up Igor Fimple’s goons/thugs/minions (whatever you prefer). The comic book like illustrations are great and add a lot to the story. All the spy gadgets and ear described in the book is really cool. I also really like that the book is written by Lisa Olivera and her son, Chase, who came up with most of the ideas. It has everything a kid could want in an adventure story- spies, bad guys, super cars, flying saucers, and pizza. The book also comes with a CD that you can listen to real people play out the book and read it to you and also hear songs created my Ms. Olivera’s husband. The CD is called “read along theater” and it is more than just someone reading the story, it’s like a whole play going on. That was cool! I recommend this book to children 6+!
