Get ready for round-the-world adventure with Sam Spinner and her brother Nipper in the first book in a new hilarious, puzzle-packed series filled with super-secret messages! Perfect for fans of Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library and classics like Holes.

Samantha Spinner's uncle Paul disappeared, and here's what he left:
* Samantha's sister got a check for $2,400,000,000.
* Samantha's brother got the New York Yankees.
* And Samantha got a rusty red umbrella with a tag hanging off its worn handle. The tag says "Watch out for the RAIN."

Thanks a lot, Uncle Paul.

After all the strawberry waffles, stories, and puzzles they've shared, how could he just leave without saying goodbye? And what is the meaning of that mysterious message?

The answer is simple. Sam knows in her heart that Uncle Paul is in danger. And if he taught her anything, it's that not everything is exactly what it seems. Which is why we should pay close attention to that rusty red umbrella, and never trust a monkey at a hula-hoop contest.

The RAIN is coming and Samantha Spinner is about to find herself mixed up in some super-important, super-dangerous, super-secret plans.

SAMANTHA SPINNER AND THE SUPER SECRET PLANS takes you on a historical adventure as Sam and her brother Nipper search for their missing uncle. When their uncle is presumed dead, Nipper gets the New York Yankees, their sister gets $2,400,000,00, and Samantha gets a boring umbrella.

At first, Sam is upset, but she soon realizes that it's no ordinary umbrella. It holds super secret plans and may be Nipper and Sam's only hope at finding their uncle. Along the way, there are several puzzles that must be solved before they can move on. As they travel to different parts of the world, they're attacked by ninjas who want the umbrella with the secret plans for themselves. Sam and Nipper have to hurry, before the ninjas catch them.

I really like the historical element to this book. It's not only intriguing, but also educational. Sam and Nipper are the perfect characters for a fun and exciting story like this one. There are also some facts and answers to puzzles hidden in the book at the end.


Final Verdict: This is a very interactive Middle Grade Fiction book and I would recommend it to fans of puzzles, history, adventure, and action.
