FROM THE DESK OF CLARICE BEAN
This is me, Clarice Bean. And you will know,if you know me,that I am exceptionordinarily keen on the Ruby Redfort books, which everyone has heard of even if they live on Mars (which no one does at the moment).Patricia F. Maplin Stacey wrote seven Ruby booksbut has stopped writing due to being aged and not with it.The good news is that Lauren Child is much youngerand is going to take over and write the new Ruby Redfortbooks — if she pulls up her socks and gets on with it.
The rst book will be called,
It is going to be published in actual hardback in March 2012, and it is the rst oneof six books all in the same series.
The thing I love about the Ruby Redfort series is that it is always excitingand quite impossible to imagine how Ruby will get out of whatever death-defyingsituation she is in.Mostly I spend the whole time behind a chair or grabbing a cushion.If you like death-defying situations as well as gadgets and a girl who is more toughthan an archish villain, then you will
Ruby Redfort.If you don’t then you are probably an Armpit.Which is what Ruby calls people who are dreadfully dreary.Someone who is an Armpit is my teacher Mrs. Wilberton.She says, “The Ruby Redfort series is not a good example of the literature of our times.”But if you look like a hippopotamus, it is hard to enjoy yourself.Now I’m going to hand over to the Candlewick people because they will tell you more about theactual in fact facts — which will not be dreary because nothing about Ruby Redfort could ever bedreary.
