In the first book " Mac Undercover", we are taking on a trilling and historical adventure with Mac. Way before Mac was an author, he was a young boy himself., but he was also a spy. Mac was a spy for the Queen of England! As the story goes on, we find out that the Crown Jewels have been taken, and there is only one young kid that can help the Queen and that happens to be Mac. Traveling the globe we follow him on this amazing and educational journey. After this book is introduced to the classroom, the students will learn about history along with the knowledge of helping others in a hard situation. This book will sure intrigue the young minds. ( )

This was a very fun read - something I don't often say about books for this age range. It was silly, it was clever, it was about spies, and it has Corgis!!!!

A fun fast read that kids can enjoy multiple times.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid fans meet Mac, both a student and a spy in this fully-illustrated chapter book series. Mac receives a call from the Queen of England to help solve a case, and thus begins his hilarious worldly travels. Enjoy the intrigue, mystery, and laughs!

Okay, this book is a little younger than I normally review as it is a chapter book, but its premise was so cute I just had to read it (and I’m so very glad I did!).

Mac B is an author, but before that he was a kid, and when he was a kid, he was a spy. Mac B is just an average kid from California who gets a call from the Queen of England who asks him to do a favor--retrieve the crown jewels that were stolen. Mac B is not sure why the Queen picks him, but he agrees, and then a plane ticket shows up at his door and he is off on the adventure of a lifetime.

What I liked: absolutely everything. The storyline is witty and silly and fabulous. I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times. The characters are charming, and the illustrations are fantastically adorable. And, of course, I love that there are historical references throughout the book.

What I didn’t like: absolutely nothing. I read it in one sitting (it is a chapter book after all), and I enjoyed every single page. Kudos to the author and illustrator.

I would highly recommend this for chapter readers (and anyone else who enjoys silly, witty stories).

5 out of 5 stars ( )

A super quick, funny, illustrated (Mike Lowery) read. Barnett starts with an author's note: "Before I was an author, I was a kid. And when I was a kid, I was a spy." Of course, the story that follows is wildly unlikely: young Mac receives a call from the Queen of England, who wants him to find the missing crown jewels, so he hops on a plane to London. Set in the 1980s, it features the KGB, karate, chess, perfectly faded blue jeans, and a Game Boy. It's a very funny caper and there is already a sequel planned, though this case wraps up neatly. Just the right choice for emerging/continuing readers or a funny read-aloud.

Quotes

"But you just said video games are rubbish."
"There is a considerable difference between believing something is rubbish and believing it should not exist," said the Queen. "Remember that." (48)

But I thought the pyramid [in front of the Louvre] was great. (I still do.) I thought it was great because I was a kid, and most kids like new things, because kids are new things too. (80)

"There are some children," said the KGB Man, "when you tell them not to do something, they want to do it even more. I thought you seemed one of these children." (139)

"What do people want more than anything else?" said the KGB Man. "They want what they cannot have." (139) ( )
