Here’s what you’ve been waiting for: The title — and cover — of Spy School #5!

Hey readers!

I have been getting a lot of questions about Spy School #5.  In particular: ‘Does it have a title besides Spy School #5?’

It does!  And while I could just type it here, it’s more fun to reveal it this way, with the incredible cover designed, as usual, by my incredible designer, Lucy Cummins:

Amazing, right?  And, as usual, what you’re seeing here doesn’t even do it justice.  The actual cover has this cool, shimmery effect for the sunglasses.  It’s fantastic!

Now, I know what your next question is going to be: ‘When does it come out?’

The answer to that is… October 10, 2017.

And now, I know what your third question is going to be: ‘What happens in this book?’

All right, I will tell you.  But with a caveat:

This is all I am going to tell you about the book.  I know this will be frustrating to you, and that you will have more questions.  But I am not going to answer those questions, no matter how nicely you ask.  Because the more you know, the less fun it is for you to read the book.

So here’s the plot, in a nutshell: Ben is sent undercover into the White House to investigate a plot against the president.  As usual, things don’t quite work out the way anyone expects, and chaos and mayhem ensue.

Everything else is classified.  For now.

  1. Hi. I LOVE your books! I can’t wait to read SS5! U must have a great imagination to think of all the plots. U do a good job too because I never see the ending coming!!!!

  2. Pancakes-
    Warren performed terribly in SSS and will probably be held back a year. That’ll be interesting- and a relief too.

    Of course, why didn’t I realize? That’s Erica’s mom.

  3. Yeah I figured so but I was still kinda worried he was the one being held back after all Cyrus was pretty annoyed with him.

  4. Hi, I love your books! They are really good. I can’t wait to see what happens in SSSS. Keep writing!!!

  5. Has Erica’s mom been in any of the books so far? And does anybody know who her mom is other than the person who gave birth to her?

  6. NA –

    Erica’s Mom has not been any of the books before. Though she was mentioned briefly in Spy School.

  7. How old is Erica? Ben is 13 right? Erica is a 4th year student and he is first. I think. So isn’t Erica older? Or was she so smart and good she skipped?

  8. I can’t wait for SSSS!

    But I have one question, is Barnes & Noble going to make an exclusive series like Ski school and ? panda ? monium?

  9. ACH05 –

    I don’t like to describe my characters because I want you to imagine them. So no matter how you draw them, you can’t be wrong.

    Hey, there’s a nice Google + community where you can share fanart and stuff about Spy School.

  11. On your picture for this website and your books at least spy series, it shows you with a elephant. Did you go to somewhere and take a trip just for that photo? Care to explain? Please.

  12. I am a huge fan! I pre-ordered SSSS. My favorite character is Murray Hill. Can’t wait until the book gets here!

  13. AM –

    Obviously, Murray owns a pet turtle. Why wouldn’t Murray own a pet turtle? It’s a red eared slider and it’s named Speedy.

  14. Lkhd –

    I am not going to answer either of those questions for entirely different reasons.

    I don’t really like to discuss how much I earn (which is the case with most people, I think) though I guess I can say its enough to support my family.

    And any info about the leader of SPYDER will take away from your enjoyment of reading future books.

  15. I just love all your books! Thank you so much for spending all this time and effort to make all of us so happy! (and to make money 8)) We are all filled with gratitude!

  16. Please don’t tell me that Erica and Mike are a thing. I’m on page 36 and I’m already thinking Erica and Mike are a thing or Erica is trying to fool Ben into thinking something.

  17. OMG Spy School Secret Service was so gooooooood don’t worry I won’t spoil it for everyone.

    Thank you thank you thank you

    P.S could you include (NAME REDACTED) in more of your books also when is your next spy school book coming out ?

  18. Hey Stuart!

    I recently just discovered this amazing series. May I ask, if you’ll keep doing the series until Ben’s year 7? Or will the series continue, even after he graduates? 😉


  19. I wish your books came out faster. You’re my favorite author so keep it p by the way S.S.5 is amazing can’t wait for 6.

  20. Stu

    It took me 10 minutes to see the latest comments might I suggest that you create links at the top so we can get there more faster thanks.

    P.S Is there a movie about SS1 coming out sooner or later

  21. Sly Devil –

    Could you be more specific? Latest comments for what? This blog post?

    Please consult the FAQ for the answer about the movie.

  22. Me: *discovers on Google that book 5 is out*
