Overview


The Hunt for the Yeti Skull (Book 13) Jack has become the most decorated secret agent for the Global Protection Force, but during the day he’s still just an ordinary kid who has to put up with annoying people—like Marko Mayer, a new student in Jack’s rock-climbing class. When Jack and Marko race to the top of the wall, Marko stomps on Jack’s hand and wins—then has the nerve to gloat! But Jack has no time to sulk—the GPF needs him in Nepal. A plane carrying a team of scientists has gone missing over Mount Everest. They were thought to be carrying the first true Yeti skull ever recovered—proof that the legendary Abominable Snowman really existed. Jack quickly discovers that a greedy collector is behind the theft—and he may have hired Jack’s archnemesis for the job. Can Jack and his fellow agents use their climbing skills to brave the highest mountain on earth and recover the priceless skull?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates), February 2012
“Each book in the series is a quick read with plenty of action and, most importantly, lots of information about history…Nonetheless, the educational purpose of the books does not take too much away from Jack’s adventures…Best of all, throughout the series, the young characters come out on top, which is always fun to read.”

VOYA - Dr. Jennifer M. Miskec
The adventure novel series that has taken nine-year-old secret agent Jack Stalwart around the world is drawing to a close. Books thirteen and fourteen, the final two in the series, take Jack to Nepal on a search for a Yeti skull, and then to Egypt to find King Tut's diadem. While in Egypt Jack also resolves the series' overarching quest: to find Jack's brother and fellow secret agent, eleven-year-old Max. As in the rest of the series, the final two books begin with sixteen pages of paratextual information from common phrases, facts about and maps of the region in which Jack's adventure is set to background information about the force in which Jack is a secret agent, his family members, and the gadgets he uses to succeed in his missions. The series concludes with Max back at home, and Jack taking a break from being a secret agent. Each book in the series is a quick read with plenty of action and, most importantly, lots of information about history and activities, like ancient Egypt or rock climbing, as well as basic facts about the various settings in which Jack finds himself. Nonetheless, the educational purpose of the books does not take too much away from Jack's adventures. Clearly directed at a young male audience, the series does have some strong female characters, though their talents and strength always seem to surprise Jack. Best of all, throughout the series, the young characters come out on top, which is always fun to read. (Secret Agent Jack Stalwart) Reviewer: Dr. Jennifer M. Miskec
