BIG NEWS. I will now be releasing THREE books in 2021.

Here’s one side effect of the COVID-19 crisis: I have a lot more time to write.

Originally, I was going to be gone for several weeks between book tour for Tyrannosaurus Wrecks, spring book festivals and my kids’ spring break.  Instead, I have spent that time at home, writing.  Which means that I could make something happen that I wouldn’t have been able to otherwise.

Instead of releasing two books next year, I am going to release three.

The newcomer is the seventh FunJungle book, which is going to come out in May of 2021.  Charlie Thorne will now come out early in the year (I assume around February) while Spy School 9 will come out in the fall.

Obviously, I do not have titles for these books yet.  And I am not going to answer any questions about what the storylines are for a while.  That information — along with more accurate release dates, will be forthcoming.

In other exciting news, Spy School is finally coming out in Spanish!  If you’d like to preorder Escuela de Espias, click here.

Okay, that’s all I have time for.  I have lots of writing to do.

I hope that your isolation is going as well as can be.  Stay strong.  And keep reading.

  1. Stu,

    can u somehow link ben and erica together or maybe mike and trixie or maybe ben and trixie or even ben cheats on erica to be with trixie

  2. Wilson –

    You want Ben to cheat on Erica with her own sister? Really???? That’s not exactly hero behavior.

  3. I’m so excited for Spy School book 9 to be released! Do you have a date yet for when the title and cover will be revealed for book 9?
    Also, I personally think that Erica and Ben should stay together; not Trixie. Hahaha! But, you’re the author; not I.

  4. Sunny –

    I am not going to release the cover and title for SS9 for a few months, I think. Maybe as many as six months. I don’t know when we will lock in the title — and when the cover will be done. I still have much work to do on the book itself.

  5. Hi Stu,
    I read Spy School Revolution a couple days ago and loved it! (How do you write such great plots?!) Both Ben and Erica are such believable characters and I laughed out loud like ten times through SS Revolution (the powdered nutgalls sent me into hysterics haha). Spy School is definitely my favorite, although Funjungle IS a close second. I know you probably get asked this question a lot, but what’s your favorite book that you have written either throughout Spy School or all of them? Or is it a tie? Can’t WAIT until the next SS!! Please keep writing, both my sister and I love your books:)

  6. Jo –

    I don’t really have a favorite book, as i invest a lot of time and energy into writing each one. (That said, the poswdered nutgalls joke is one of my favorites I have ever come up with.)

  7. Stu-

    That statment I made sounds stupid so I think you should have Trixie try to break up erica and ben so she can be with ben.

  8. The SS8 book was amazing I spent all night wondering what would happen. I think Erica is starting to actually open up to Ben. What would the plot be for SS9 I honestly think that Mike would go with Trixie and Ben and Erica would get together but if Ben cheated on Erica it sounds very unrealistic because that’s not what my boy Benny does. Zoe is probably gonna be that 1 character that just slowly fades away. I love your books start and keep writing.

  9. Stu – I love FJ and SS. I can relate to Ben and Teddy so much. You should make a crossover with FJ and SS one day. Also can you make an evil organization of cricket players that try to sabotage the Olympics because there sport is not in it?

  10. Ben –

    I am not planning a crossover at this time.

    That’s a funny idea about the cricket players… but I really can’t take suggestions from readers.

    You might want to read Life, The Universe and Everything by Douglas Adams for a very funny take on the origins of cricket. (Although it’s probably best to read the entire Hitchhiker’s Guide to the galaxy series in order.)

  11. Ben Ripley –

    Please see the right hand column of every single page of this website to find out when new releases are coming out.

  12. I loved the book SS8 and I am excited for the release of SS9
    p.s you inspired me to try to write a book in the future

  13. Stu-

    I love how you wrote all your SS books with such big plot twists in the criminal plots over the series, and I can’t wait to find out what’s in store for Ben and Erica this time. Also
    Mr.E was a childhood nickname My parents gave me so when one of the characters was named Mr.E it was so cool and I felt like part of the story.

  14. The Spy School & Funjungle series has greatly improved my writing style and skills. For that I thank you. I love all of your books and can’t wait for the next one.

  15. Hi Mr.Gibbs!
    I just wanted to let you know I am a huge fan. Also, I have the kindle edition of some of your books, and whenever you write letters underneath the blacked out parts, I can see what they say. I have no idea why it works like that, but I figured since it’s blacked out you probably don’t want people to see what it means. Don’t worry, I’m not going to tell anybody what it says because that would defeat the purpuse of the blacked out parts. (By the way, loved Revaloution. It amazing!)

    – A Spy School Fan.

  16. SS Fan –

    Just know that those blacked out words on the Kindle aren’t even the right words. Words were typed in the blacked out spaces simply to give an idea of how long the spaces would be. I have no idea why they were actually printed in the kindle version.

  17. Hello, Mr.Gibbs! You can call me…

    I loooove the SS series. I am a HUGE fan! 🙂 But I thought about SS8… If Trixie was recruited, what would Erica be like?
    I have no idea 🙂

  18. Willstar –

    I don’t know what Erica would be like under those circumstances either. I haven’t given it much thought.

  19. You should make Erica and Ben get together and have Trixie get jealous and convert to the croatoan (if they are still a thing)

  20. Mr. Stuart Gibbs
    I love your books! Sadly I have finished the whole SS series in 5 days. I end up staying up all night reading! I also am very excited about the new books! Since I already read every one of your books so far I have no more good books to read. Any suggestions?

    Your loyal reader,

  21. I love your books! I can’t wait for the new book. I stayed up until 3 am on a few nights to read the entire series in 2 weeks!

  22. Stu-
    First of all I would just like to say that I love the Spy School series. I just am commenting to say that Ben and Erica need to finally kiss and get together!!!

  23. I really like your books. I’ve only been able to read spy school so far. Your pieces of literature is DEFINETLY in the top 3 I HAVE EVER READ. Idk who should hook who with who. so far, I think he should get em all… but then again its urs and since ur a pro, I think u know what’s best. BTW I only buy the books that I have read and know are legend so I can reread it. my savings aren’t able to get me fun jungle yet.[rip me. I don’t want 2 use a crummy{no offence} library 2 read amazing literature.] I keep on goin in a cycle of reading your books. kinda funny. and the most ironic thing is, whilst writing this I’m eating croutons. btw pls tell me how ur supposed 2 pronounce the bad guys since idk if its actually croutons salad ingredient or something else..[my name is not ‘stadida47’ AND WAS INVENTED IN 2015 BEFORE THE GOOGLE CONSOLE.{stadia}]

  24. Stu-
    I would love if you could put ben and Erica together. I am pretty sure most people would ship them. GO BERICA!!!!

  25. stadida47 –

    Croatoan is pronounced: ‘CROW-AH-TOA-ANN.”

    Most libraries are not that crummy. They are an exceptionally good way to read books for free.
