The excitement of international espionage combined with the awkwardness of elementary makes for non-stop laughs in NERDS, the hilarious series from New York Times bestselling author Michael Buckley!
Meet the NERDS, a team of eleven-year-old super spies:
Duncan “Gluestick” Dewey: He’s a paste-eater who can stick to walls.
Ruby “Pufferfish” Peet: Her allergies help her detect danger and dishonesty.
Heathcliff “Choppers” Hodges: He controls minds with his buckteeth.
Julio “Flinch” Escala: His hyperactivity gives him super speed and strength.
Matilda “Wheezer” Choi: Her inhalers enable her to fly and blast enemies.
Jackson “Braceface” Jones, the new recruit. This metal mouth is the team’s go-to gadget guy . . . if only he can get over becoming a NERD.
Can this team of misfits save the world from their secret headquarters in the basement of their school? Can you read NERDS without laughing? Go ahead and try!
