Book Description

Star athlete Josh and computer prodigy Madison are recruited by the mysterious Mr. Crux to attend a special summer camp. The two elementary school kids then begin the adventure of a lifetime. They discover that the Small World Global Protection Agency is a network of talented and skilled children in countries all over the world. Their mission is to help other kids and save the day when adults can’t.
In Case File: 001-A, New Kids on the Rock, Josh and Madison start their adventure with the Global Protection Agency. Their first mission takes them to Australia to help teen pop singer Ja-Naya and discover what her evil manager, Feeble Bix is up to. Their counterparts, Mick and Kim, are ready for action as they head across the Outback.
The Small World Global Protection Agency is an adventure serial aimed at third through fifth grade readers. Each volume will take Josh and Madison to a different country. The stories will be entertaining, sometimes suspenseful, sometimes humorous. Each story will introduce facts about other countries and cultures, educating the reader through the eyes of children their own age while having fun.
Mark currently resides in Florida with his family. He strives to follow in the footsteps of his namesake, Mark Twain.
His father was a newspaper writer and editor for both the Kansas City Star and Kansan. Mark received his Bachelor’s Degree in Film from the University of Kansas. He has been influenced by great stories from C.S. Lewis, and Tolkien and Star Wars.
Mark is the author of The Empyrical Tales. Book I: The Fourth Queen and Book II: The Lost Queen are available now. Book III: The Secret Queen is coming Spring 2012. Mark is also the creator of the spiritual eBook series “Mark Miller’s One”. The first story, “Meant To Be”, tells how he met his wife.
Mark believes being a father of four makes him uniquely qualified to write his stories. He also has spent time in the classroom with third, fourth and fifth graders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small Wonder November 12, 2011
By Rondo K
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm new to Mark Miller and I'm happy to say this neat, little e-book has taken me by surprise. The young heroes, Madison and Josh, are warm, familiar and recognisable to us all, and Mark puts them in the exciting, high-tech (even sci-fi!) world of the Small World Global Protection Agency.

I find it appealing (as a teacher) that Mark has also managed to make the story educational, as well as creating situations and issues that young people will know all about. Madison and Josh have talents, worries and problems like us all, but manage to keep on track with a positive outlook.

The book is written in a friendly, easy-going style, and this volume (Case File: 001-A) provides an introduction to the many colourful charaters and sets us up nicely for the next part. In a nutshell, Mark has created a bite-sized, tasty little morsel of a story, which makes you want more of the meal. There will be lots more case files on the way I hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great homeschooling / Teacher Resource to teach Geography December 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's about time someone wrote a story for children in grades 3-5 about geography. Seeing a country on the globe tell kids nothing about the country, but Mark Miller mixes in culture and "takes" the kids to diffferent countries in this continuing series, just the right length too. As a former teacher and homeschool mom, I highly recommend this new series. Great resource for teachers and homeschoolers and you can't beat the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Beginning, Disappointing Ending March 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Two exceptional kids are recruited for a special mission: Madison, a computer whiz, and Joshua, a star athlete. When Madison sees two men in suits at her school library, she thinks they are going to arrest her for hacking into the school computer network. A mad dash ensues as she tries to escape, but is eventually caught by the Small World Protection Agency recruiters. When recruiters go after Josh, he wields his baseball bat to fend them off, but there are too many of them and he, too, is caught. Once recruited, the two heroes begin special training at a very high-tech base. What a great beginning!

Now it is time for the pair to begin their first mission. What the heck? The book is only just getting started and it ends. I understand that this is the beginning of a series, but what a disappointment. When I buy a book, I hope to get a beginning, a climax, and a conclusion, even if there are enough unresolved issues to lead to book two. It is very well-written, but in my humble opinion just too short to market it as a "book".
