NERDS combines all the excitement of international espionage with all the awkwardness of elementary school, and the results are hilarious. A group of unpopular fifth graders run a spy network from inside their school. With the help of cutting-edge science, they transform their nerdy qualities into incredible abilities Their enemies? An array of James Bond-style villains, each with an evil plan more diabolical and more ridiculous than the last. "Publishers Weekly" raved: "Buckley has a flair for exaggerated humor." "School Library Journal" said: "Funny, clever, and thoroughly entertaining."
Praise for "NERDS: M is for Mama's Boy"
"Fans of the first novel will find even more laughs here." -"Booklist "
"Peppered with lessons on cracking codes, ciphers and invisible ink, the second adventure in Buckley's silly spy-kids spoof is as frenetically goofy as the first....a terrific package for reluctant readers or book lovers out for thrills, gadgets and larfs." -"Kirkus Reviews.
