Editorial Reviews

Review

"Julian, his younger brother, and their friend Gloria read the wanted posters in the post office and decide to search their town for criminals. The plot is well-developed, and the characters are aptly drawn. A quick and interesting read--and one that will surely draw in less-able readers."--School Library Journal.

From the Inside Flap

From rescuing a dog stuck in a hot car to saving a toddler from drowning, secret agents Julian, Huey, and Gloria have done a nice bit of crimebusting. But what they really want is to nab a real-live bank robber and earn the $25,000 reward. Just when it looks as if they might get their man, the police chief steps in, and the supersleuths find that they?re the ones who are in trouble, with a capital T!
Ann Cameron is the bestselling author of many popular books for children, including The Stories Julian Tells, More Stories Julian Tells, The Stories Huey Tells, and More Stories Huey Tells.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. Toi Davis on October 17, 2000
Format: School & Library Binding
My third grade class and I are completing our unit on Realistic Fiction books. I chose Julian Secret Agent because my students loved Julian's Glorious Summer. The children enjoyed this book for so many reasons. The vocabulary used was contemporary and that made the story easier for the children to understand. As a result of their ease with comprehension the children began to participate in class discussions with a great deal of enthusiasm. The short chapters also helped to make the children feel comfortable with reading and that gave them the encouragement to want to read further. Additonally, the children enjoyed the illustrations because they were so closely aligned with the text that they couldn't wait to see what would happen next. Lastly,the children were able to appreciate the humor in the book because it was written at their level. I found that reading this book with my students made teaching reading an absolute joy. My class and I highly recommend reading this book because you will beg for more.

Format: Paperback
Three young kids--Julian, his little brother Huey, and best friend Gloria, look through the Most-Wanted posters at the post office. They decide they'd like to investigate crimes and criminals. Later, in a parking lot, they see a dog locked in a hot car. A passerby says, "That's a crime!" and they know their calling has begun. Afterwards, they rescue a lost toddler from playing too near a water fountain. This story is too funny because the kids are so innocent: they go to a bar to look for crime, and are spotted by someone who knows their dad. Oh, boy, are they in trouble now! Next, a young man working in a fast food shop matches the description on a Most Wanted poster. They go to the police chief, who in turn, asks them for help in identifying this possible criminal, who turns out to be the chief's son! This delightful story is well-written, realistic and interesting, and depicts characters still in the wonderful freshness of youth. A beginning chapter book for hungry early readers, Diane Allison's illustrations help depict the African-American neighborhood, such as a scene in the park under the MLK statue.

I recommend the book because it's exciting. First,I like it because Julian, Gloria,and Huey are crimebusters. This leads to many adventures for them. You can read about the Great Goo Goo and The Wizard. Will they get the $25,000 reward? Read this great book to find out what happens.

The story Julian Secret Agent is one of my favorite books because I love books with a little mystery. I can look at the silly illustration in this story and laugh for days. We are finishing our unit on realistic fiction books and this book was a pleasure to read.

I love the Julian stories and purchased this for my 7 year old grandson. As a former second grade teacher, I highly recommend Ann Cameron's Julian series as for 6-9 year olds. The books are high interest, very funny and were loved by my second graders.
