  1. Do you have any more info on the spyschool movie and what year will the next spyschool be released I am a huge fan

  2. King –

    All future releases (like SS9) are posted on the right hand column of every single page of this website.

    And… if I had more info on the movie, then I would have posted it.

  3. Aidan –

    I am not going to reveal the plot for another few months. I just revealed the plot for Bear Bottom two days ago.

  4. Mr.Gibbs-

    I saw in an earlier blog post that you’d love to have a video game on the site but you don’t know how and don’t have the time or resources but I have a pretty solid knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Considering school’s almost out for break I was wondering if you’d be interested in doing it. If you are please tell me what you’d like in it and be more then glad to try and create one (assuming it’s in my realm of coding knowledge) . Sorry if this is in the wrong category I’m not sure where else I’d post it.

  5. JC –

    Honestly, I have no thoughts on what the video game should be — and frankly, I’m not sure that my server can support one. If you wanted to make a video game, I would happy to set up a link to it, but I don’t want to pressure you to do this in any way.

  6. Could you make the price cheaper for the visits. Please. My school will only do it if it gets cheaper.

  7. Mr.Gibbs-

    I’ve created a small slide puzzle and it’s very simple HTML code that almost any website can host. I was thinking of creating a Spy School series of ones? Please tell me what you think. I’ve linked an example below.

  8. big fan

    Unfortunately, I can’t make the price cheaper. It is work to do school visits — and each one takes time away from my ability to write. I thought very carefully about how much to charge in order to make the visits affordable for most schools — and also worth my time.

  9. Mr.Gibbs

    Due to the timing of your last post and how I suspect the WordPress blog system works I thought to insure you got my previous post I’d repost it.

    I’ve created a small slide puzzle and it’s very simple HTML code that almost any website can host. I was thinking of creating a Spy School series of ones? Please tell me what you think. I’ve linked an example below.

  10. Mr.Gibbs-

    Should we start using this is as a kind of off topic since a lot of the questions we ask don’t coincide with the blog posts topic?

  11. JC –

    No, that’s not necessary. I have found that people generally tend to ask questions about whatever they want on whatever page they happen to be reading at the time.

  12. Mr. Gibbs-

    I love your books. You are my favorite author and I have read everyone single one of your books twice! I was really excited when I found out that you were going to release 3 books in 2021. In specific the spy school series is my favorite. Anyhow, I just want to thank you for writing amazing books and I can’t wait for more!

  13. Mr.Gibbs –

    I can see why you wouldn’t want to click a random link from a stranger so I was wondering if you were still interested in the code I could put it in a pastebin or any other info/code sharing system? The puzzle one that is.

  14. J.C., I looked at your puzzle thing, and it’s cool, but you might want to consider not having the background; it makes it too easy.

  15. Dear Mr. Gibbs

    I am writing a book report on your book, Lion Down and my school is a christian school so I have to write on how your book has either a christian worldview or a humanistic worldview. I was just wondering if you are a christian or if you have any religion at all. Unfortunately, i am a very bad procrastinator so I unfortunately left it until the night before its due to write my book report… EEK!

  16. Ana –

    I choose to keep my religious views private. Although I would certainly say that Lion Down has a humanistic world view.

    And I realize I am responding too late for your book report, but honestly, I can’t check comments repeatedly on this website just in case someone needs my help with a book report ASAP.

  17. Since when could you post here? And if you can post here, Is there anywhere else you can post that I didn’t know about?

  18. AH –

    This index was created this summer. It is very hard to tell me the other places you can post that you don’t know about — since I have no idea which ones you know about.

  19. Mr. Gibbs-

    On October 22, 2020 at 10:24 pm Aidan said “What’s the plot for spy school nine?
    And then on October 23, 2020 at 9:42 am you said to Aidan “I am not going to reveal the plot for another few months. I just revealed the plot for Bear Bottom two days ago.” Well, it’s a few months later. So are you going to share with us the plot now?

  20. Alexander Hale –

    I will post the plot when I am ready to post it, which will still be another few months.

  21. Mr. Gibbs-

    I think you should add a comment sections for Home,
    books, FAQ, school visits, signed copies, get involved!, get stuff!, and save the world!.

  22. Alexander Hale –

    Honestly, there are many places for people to comment on this site. And i think it makes the most sense for the comments to be on the blog. So there is really no point to having comments on those pages.

  23. Alexander Hale –

    I guess I created it so that people could write comments on it asking why I created it.

  24. I found another way to save the planet (see save the planet tab) use Ecosia. It is a free search engine that plants trees of of their ad revnue. Every 45 serches plants a tree and they have planted over 115 million trees as of Jan 1. 2020.
    (And no I am not trying to advertise ecosia and I am not related to this company I just use it and it is very helpful for the environment. I have planted over 7 trees as of Jan 1. 2020)

  25. I will definitely use Ecosia. I’m just searching random stuff right now. I search a word, search another word, search another word, etc.

  26. Mr. Gibbs-
    I think you should add Ecosia to save the world. It’s really working for me. And it’s better than the rainforest site because Ecosia is a search engine so you can use it to search! It’s great.

  27. Dear Stu- can you please add Ecosia to the save the world tab. You can read my comments above on why I use it and why it is a great way to help the enviroment
