 Giveaway Instructions at the End of the Review...
Books 13 & 14 given out Dec 2nd
How did I ever miss this series for my older boys? With a series title like Secret Agent Jack Stalwart, the name alone grabs the attention of every middle grade reader out there!
Thankfully these fantastic books fell into my lap while I still have young boys to read them to and have them get excited about reading. Fantastic series for the reluctant reader as it is jam packed with excitement!!
Ok but who is Jack Stalwart anyhow??

 Nine-year-old Jack Stalwart is like most young boys. He spends his days going to school, playing sports, and finishing his homework before bedtime. But Jack is no ordinary kid. Not when he’s the most decorated junior agent in the Global Protection Force (or GPF) arsenal. Nearly every night, Jack travels to a new country to fight evil villains and protect the world’s most precious people, places and possessions.

Each book takes the reader to a new country, and Elizabeth Singer Hunt preps the reader for the adventure before the story even begins. A world map showing where Jack is heading, Jack’s correspondence with the GPF, his secret agent gadgets and how they work, a synopsis of the country he is going to including some key words in the foreign language, and some facts to get the reader all set to tackle the adventure. The reader is getting an educational look at each country and the fun thing is they may not realize it!! Love how Elizabeth is sneaking in ‘learning’ in each one of her books.
I read Book 13, The Hunt for the Yeti Skull


 THE HUNT FOR THE YETI SKULL (Book 13 in the Secret Agent Jack Stalwart series), features Jack Stalwart, THE action-adventure hero for the younger reader, on a quest to recover the first true Yeti skull—proof that the legendary Abominable Snowman really existed. Surviving the highest mountain on earth and the threats of a band of Russian spies is all in an evening’s work for this junior agent.  
Book 14, The  Mission to Find Max which takes place in Egypt.

 While the GPF had always refused to share details with Jack about Max’s whereabouts, Jack was able to collect clues in previous books pointing to Max being in Egypt. With the help of a GPF insider, Jack finally travels to Egypt where he finds not only his brother, but the reason behind his brother’s disappearance. Jack’s arch nemesis—a greedy archaeologist from Book 5—has captured Max and pried from him the location of the ancient treasure that Max was guarding—King Tut’s diadem, a crown believed to possess unspeakable power. With the archaeologist now in possession of the diadem, Jack, Max and Kate (also from Book 5) race against time to stop the archaeologist before he unleashes the power across Egypt itself.
The final globe-trotting adventure in the million-copy selling hit series, THE MISSION TO FIND MAX is the perfect way to entertain—and educate—boys and girls alike.
I will be collecting the first 12 in this series for sure to add to our ever growing book collection. I know for certain I have a 10 year old who will love these books, and as a homeschooler I love that he is getting some world geography thrown in with his reading skills!! Highly recommend The Jack Stawart series for your 6-9 year olds, and even older!!

  10. This is the first I've heard of this series, but I have three boys that I'm sure would just love it! My oldest would want an ocean adventure, the middle would want Samurai Japan and the youngest wouldn't care where as long as there's lots of adventuring and exploring! Hope to add these to our book collection!

  12. With havin so much content do you ever run into
    any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My
    site has a lot of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is
    popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate
    it.
