Chase Danger, Super-Spy, Book 1 – Mystery of the Special Sauce

By Lisa and Chase Olivera

Illustrated by Adam Goodman

32 pages – ages 6+

Published by Magic Fire Music Studio, 2011

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,Β  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.Β  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+!

I give Chase Danger 5 out of 5 bookworms!

    I wish I could be a super hero like Chase. Maybe he needs a dog side-kick. I hope it’s not a problem that I’m afraid of just about everything… Especially minions!!

    Love and licks,

      Hugs and Pats,

      I love the Spy Kids Movies (well, I didn’t like the 3rd one…)! I think you will like this book Ms. Brown!

    I think this style and content could be a great hit with young boys, Erik! I love the title of the second one too!

    My son wants to be a spy when he grows up and he loves pizzas (don’t we all? ;)) I have to check this out! thanks Erik

      I think you guys will enjoy this book! πŸ™‚ I only know of one person who doesn’t like pizzas (because he is allergic to them) and is a fictional character – Maniac Magee! πŸ™‚

    Great review Erik – my son LOVED it too! πŸ™‚

    This sounds really cool, Erik! I’m curious – is it a traditional picture book, or is it more like a comic book?


    • thiskidreviewsbooks November 6, 2012 at 7:17 am #

      It IS really cool! It is a traditional picture book, but when Chase has a flashback, it goes like a silent comic! πŸ™‚

    This adventure story probably appeals to you so much, Erik, because, I suspect that when you grow up, you will do something really adventurous also.

    I enjoyed the video clip Erik as well as your review! I love how you are able to interweave so many details without really revealing too much, that’s skill! πŸ™‚ Adventure, who wouldn’t want that? No one’s ever too old for adventure.

      Thanks Ms. Bascal! I am glad you like my reviews! I like adventures! They mean excitement (sometimes danger too…)! πŸ™‚

    This book sounds like a lot of fun. I love the bright colors and the fact that it includes everything a kids could want! The fact that a 6 year old is the main character is pretty impressive. I think it is cool that the authors were a mom and son. How fun! Thanks for sharing.

    I really liked this book too. Glad you enjoyed it.
