SPY STUFF is "non-stop entertainment"

Over at the BiblioReads site, there's a very pleasant book review. Here's part of it:
The Big Book of Spy Stuff is excellent... The entertainment is non-stop in this 304 page tome which is pretty amazing considering the age group it targets — Bart King knows how to hold the attention of a 9-12 year old. 
Kiddos that are just getting into chapter books may be overwhelmed by the size of this book, but King breaks up the wordage into bite-sized pieces with humor that will encourage this age to grasp reading something that requires a little endurance. Precocious readers will gobble it up, twelve year olds will get hooked, and older kids will be amused as well.
