Spy Ski School


The coolest Spy School adventure yet.

The CIA has finally decided to activate Ben Ripley for real.

The Mission: Become friends with Jessica Shang, the daughter of a suspected Chinese crime boss, and find out all of her father’s secrets. Jessica wants to go to ski school in the Rocky Mountains, so a select few spy school students are going skiing too—under cover, of course.

Ben might not be able to handle a weapon (or a pair of skis), but he’s poised for success on this one. That is, until his best friend from home drops in on the trip and jeopardizes the entire mission…

    U said Erica can’t be short because she’s a spy.
    One, that’s a stereotype,
    And two, I’m a pretty good spy, and XD I’m kinda short!

  2. Dear Stu.

    I know you probably won’t answer this post due to how late I posted it, but it would mean the world to me. My question was if you think you are ever going to do a FJ and SS crossover ( I’ve read all your books you’ve ever Made, so I know all about them),
    And do you think Ben will ever get to be a very athletic kid I just feel like it would make the series super awesome, I understand if you don’t answer thank you and please make more books ( and maybe even a brand new series)!!

  3. SG lover –

    I am not planning on doing a crossover at this time.

    Ben is getting more athletic with each book.

  4. Hi I have not been on Wattpad yet I might check it out?!
    I’m on book eight ( u know I finished #7)
    Someone tell me plz how to get a life

    I am empty inside without spy school
    Therefore I need to get a life
    I loooove spy school

  5. Lol what is spy love school? (Can’t go on Fanfiction.com)

  6. I’m such a weird fangirl shipper!!! I am writing a Fanfic currently!!!!
    (It is terrible)

  7. What do the letters in the front and back actually say? Without the blacked out lettering?

  8. monkeymania –

    What would be the point of blacking out the letters if I then told you what they said?

  9. Justin –

    I am not going to have time travel in Spy School. It doesn’t feel right for the series. Too sci-fi.

  10. Oh sorry I should have made that more clear. I meant have you ever considered having the setting of a book be a couple of years ahead of the previous book.

  11. Sorry, I meant if you considered having the setting of a book to be set a couple of years ahead from the previous one.

  12. Justin –

    If I set Spy School books earlier, Ben wouldn’t be in Spy School. Which would take all the fun away from the series, I think.

  13. Hi Mr Gibbs! I’m in third grade and just found your books. I’m reading Spy Ski School right now and it’s the best book ever! Sadly, my book was misprinted and Two of the last chapters weren’t printed – they reprinted two from the beginning. I’m dying to know what happens! What can I do? Thanks! M, Boston, USA

  14. Jessica

    I’m so sorry to hear that. If you take the book back to where you bought it they will replace it for free.

  15. hey i know you probably wont answer this but im a huge fan of the spy school collection and im really sad becasue I have only 3 left and i read pretty fast( a book per two day sometimes) so I was just wondering if your gonna make a new book and when? I hope you respond. 🙁

  16. love your books –

    SS8 out fall 2020. For future reference, upcoming releases are on the right hand side of every single page of this website.

    What is your most favorite Harry Potter book? (You could list more than one if you’d like)

  18. Miss Sterious –

    Summer is famous simply because her parents are wealthy. Just like the Kardashians.

    Only, Summer doesn’t want to be famous.

    To who? if your talking about the t-series and pewdiepie war, your a little late. nice name

  20. This is my favorite Spy School book! I love skiing, and I went skiing in Vail! (I may have spotted CIA agents!… or I got too exited)

  21. ok soo I just started reading your books and i just finished evil spy school I was wondering who did you get into writing and how did you come up with this theme I’m trying to become a better writer as a hobby and I think as an author you’re a great role model

  22. identity unknown –

    The first step to being a better writer is to learn how to punctuate.

    Also, proofreading is helpful. I think you’re asking ‘how’ I got into writing and not ‘who did you get into writing’ but I’m not sure.

    I started writing when I was a kid and practiced all the time so I got better and better at it.

    The idea of ESS came when I was wondering how all the minions for SPECTRE in James Bond decided to do that for a living.

  23. if your gonna make a movie can I play the Role as ben im exactly like him i’m super good at math too and i know TaeKwonDo I love your series spy school and I would really be grateful if I could star as Ben Riply if you make a movie

  24. Caleb –

    As I have tried to make clear in the blog posts I have written about the movie, there will not be casting until the movie is greenlit (which hasn’t happened) and I will have nothing to do with casting. Sorry.


  25. Het Stu-
    Also, I just got into this series lately.
    Can you make SS9 a space spy mission?
    It could be a chase, or something flashy.
    I can’t really say much about the Croatoan, since SS8 is not out yet.
    We know about as much about Croatoan as Ben Ripley does currently, which is practically nothing.
    Then again, I hope you can do that. (I know you probably can’t)

  26. Bad at names –

    Are you asking how to leave comments about the other books on my site? I don’t know. I thought that was possible for all the books.

    I am not going to set and SS books in space — because I already did a space series: Moon Base Alpha. And I ultimately had to end that series because i was finding space a very constricting place to set stories. One of the great things about SS is that I can have adventures take place anywhere on earth — so why would I leave earth and set an adventure in space?

  27. I think what bad at names meant was that there is no comment sections for any other of you books

  28. Stu –
    I love ORION! I think this is a weird place, but Orion es mi caracter favorito. (you speak Spanish, right Stu?)

  29. Stu-

    Do all your books take place in the same universe? Because I have noticed some connections between some. Was that on purpose?

  30. IDK –

    Any connections between my books is intentional. But I don’t think that every series takes place in the same universe. Only some do.

  31. Dear Mr Stuart Gibbs,
    I live this series I am reading it for the 3rd Tim and I was reading spy ski school and I think I caught a mistake on page 242 beginning of paragraph 3, Erica says it is December 13th d-day for operation gold fist and at the beginning of the chapter on page 241 it says:

    Blue Sky Basin
    Vail Mountain
    December 30
    1000 Hours

    it might be a mistake but I’m not sure.

    P.S-please get Ben and Zoe Together

  32. Mr.Gibbs,
    I love how your books are mystery and comedy. I read 2 per day!! I was just wondering if you like nerdy movies/books? if so, which ones?
    -Madeline Wisniewski,12

  33. Madeline –

    I’m not sure what would be considered a nerdy movie or a nerdy book.
