Review of Delbert: The Reluctant Spy by Marko Kitti

Read for: Requested Review/ Silly, fun enjoyment
Last week I posted a review of the newest Jesper Jinx book and mentioned in the review how it had a nice little introduction of a spin off series, well here is the first book in the new series, Delbert.
Synopsis: "Ten-year-old Delbert’s world is grey and glum since his grandfather died. Everything is a dull routine, and all Delbert wants to do is stay in his room. What’s more, he has to cope with an annoying next-door neighbour, Evie, who has committed her life to being in love with him.

But Delbert’s whole life is about to change when he is forced into a SUPER SECRET SPY MISSION to find a missing cat called Pandora. What seems like a straightforward job suddenly escalates into the stuff of real spy stories.

Bursting with humour and thrilling surprises, this fast-paced, action-packed story takes Delbert and Evie on a wild ride with an UTTERLY SHOCKING SECRET at the end…"

My Review:  I have been an avid fan of Kitti's Jesper Jinx series and in the most recent book, Jesper Jinx and the Scrumptious Snacks, there is an nice introduction to this new branch off series. Several of the characters from the Jesper Jinx series are mentioned in this book but it isn't necessary to read it before this book. This is a silly and fun book that is targeted towards middle grade boy readers, but can be enjoyed by all. The action and crazy antics in this book will keep you reading and young readers turning pages, even those reluctant readers.
My Rating: This was yet another home run hit for Marko Kitti, I really enjoyed the new characters and the quirkiness of the story.  While this is along similar lines to Jesper Jinx with the comedy and Middle Grade book, it is clearly a different book with it's own unique characters. I give this book a rating of Four Paws and can't wait for Munchkin to be old enough to enjoy these books!
I received Delbert: The Reluctant Spy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
