Secret agent Amelia Kidd has saved the world loads of times from evil geniuses and criminal masterminds—thanks to her great disguises, gadgets (which sometimes work), and her brilliance at improvising in sticky situations. The three secret agent case files in this book are:

The Case of the Zombie Cows, in which Amelia visits a petting zoo where she’s chased by tick-tocking cows into the yard of pecking clockwork chickens! Time for another dastardly plan to rule the world to be stopped, with Agent Amelia on the clock.

The Case of the Perilous Pipe, in which a new music teacher uses an enchanted pipe to make all the children follow her. Could it be the notorious Pied Piper’s pipe? Trust Amelia to crack the spell, though!

The Case of the Creepy Cakes, in which an innocent desire for a doughnut uncovers a fiendish plot to take over the world! As the cream from exploding cakes in the bakery smothers every surface, Amelia can be sure she has uncovered the villains!

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring)
Spunky Amelia is a young spy with a special talent for rooting out grownups bent on taking over the world. Each of these volumes features three cases in which Amelia goes up against stock villains. Despite the holes in logic, the mysteries are entertainingly goofy. The texts' humor comes and goes; spirited black-and-white illustrations make a solid attempt at sustaining it. [Review covers these Agent Amelia titles: Ghost Diamond! and Zombie Cows!]

Gr 2–4—Amelia may look like a mild-mannered grade schooler with hipster sunglasses and a heavy backpack, but in reality she is a secret agent with enough gadgets to rival McGuyver and an imagination that puts Harriet the Spy to shame. Her plan is to save the world from evil geniuses and criminal masterminds, and she always succeeds. In each easy chapter book, she solves three cases that center on some bizarre doings. If there's a guy at the garden store raising mutant weeds, then a little herbicide will remedy the situation. If a couple is getting ready to rob a bank using an army of cats, then the yarn from an unraveled sweater will solve that problem. The child even manages to get the better of her nemesis, popular girl Trudy Hart. And the only one who gets even close to thwarting Amelia is her mom, who is just a little too curious about what her daughter lugs around in such a large backpack and why she appears rather friendless. These imaginative books will appeal to readers with a quirky sense of humor and might also find fans with readers of Dave Keane's "Joe Sherlock, Kid Detective" (HarperCollins).—Kathleen Meulen Ellison, Sakai Intermediate School, Bainbridge Island, WA
