I enjoy sharing stuff to read with my younger kids. This is such a story. In fact this is something that besides being an enjoyable read is also educational, and we can all use a bit of that on occasion can’t we? I like the mix, and it fits right in, it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Mark Miller has introduced some nice characters, doesn’t speak down to a soul, and carries off a very difficult high wire act. That for me is a bargain at any price, this just happens to be $.99.

“Another in the Trestle Press Digital Short Story Cliffhanger Series:
Star athlete Josh and computer prodigy Madison are recruited by the mysterious Mr. Crux to attend a special summer camp. The two elementary school kids then begin the adventure of a lifetime. They discover that the Small World Global Protection Agency is a network of talented and skilled children in countries all over the world. Their mission is to help other kids and save the day when adults can’t.
In Case File: 001-A, New Kids on the Rock, Josh and Madison start their adventure with the Global Protection Agency. Their first mission takes them to Australia to help teen pop singer Ja-Naya and discover what her evil manager, Feeble Bix is up to. Their counterparts, Mick and Kim, are ready for action as they head across the Outback.
The Small World Global Protection Agency is an adventure serial aimed at third through fifth grade readers. Each volume will take Josh and Madison to a different country. The stories will be entertaining, sometimes suspenseful, sometimes humorous. Each story will introduce facts about other countries and cultures, educating the reader through the eyes of children their own age while having fun.
