When Thom and his friends, Danny and Hilly break into his dad’s office, they get the surprise of their lives. Mr. Gonzo is not a sales clerk or a doctor. He’s a spy. Armed with his dad’s credentials, cell phone and credit card, Thom enlists the help of Danny and Hilly on a daring search and rescue to Ireland.

Alex Gonzo, Royal Spy is a fast-paced and funny adventure middle grade readers will definitely enjoy.
