About Code Name Danger, (Paperback ISBN: 978-1-63163-523-6)
As Will arrives on the Code Name Danger set, he’s eager to jump into filming—and to learn what it means to be a real-life secret agent. The cool gadgets, the flashy moves—Will wants them all. But when a villain from the Code Name Danger book series shows up in real life, threatening to rewrite history, Will is launched into his first mission. Fiction and fact are blurring, and it will take all Will’s training—and the help of partner Fresca, tech whiz Jarvis, and spymaster Ms. Z—to piece together the villain’s identity and stop him.

About Double Agent (Paperback ISBN: 978-1-63163-527-4)
Will was excited to film season two of Code Name Danger and to get his next secret-agent mission. But everything is falling apart: spymaster Ms. Z is nowhere to be found, his friend and partner Fresca isn’t answering his texts, and the two new twin rivals on the TV show are beating Agent Danger in every scene! Something fishy is going on, and Will doesn’t know who to trust. As clues reveal a dastardly, world-threatening plot, he and tech whiz Jarvis will need to act quickly to stop it. But this time, the kids are on their own.
