Wendelin Van Draanen spent many years as a classroom teacher and is now a full-time writer. She is the author of many award-winning books, including the Sammy Keyes mysteries, Flipped, Swear to Howdy, Runaway, and Confessions of a Serial Kisser. Ms. Van Draanen lives with her husband, two sons, and two dogs in California. Her hobbies include the "three R's" reading, running, and rock 'n' roll. Wendelin Van Draanen and her husband are also the founders of Exercise the Right to Read, a nationwide campaign designed to get kids reading and running and to help schools raise funds for their libraries. Ms. Van Draanen ran her first marathon when the campaign kicked off, and seeing athletes with disabilities running strong provided much of the inspiration for this book.

Gr 3-7-In his fourth appearance, Nolan stumbles onto an international spy ring and sets off a chain reaction of suspicions that lead to the arrests of his parents and his teacher. To complicate things, his archenemy, Bubba, has discovered that Nolan is indeed Shredderman. But instead of exposing his secret, the bully wants one thing: to be Shredderman's sidekick, The Bouncer. In the end, Nolan must reveal his identity in order to save his family and his favorite teacher. As in the earlier books, the protagonist uses his Web site to help move justice along and make sure the truth is seen. Readers will identify with him and the other kids in the school and will start rooting for the underdogs. Reluctant readers will enjoy the fast-moving plot and the black-and-white cartoons scattered throughout. The book could also be used to teach awareness about bullying and tolerance of kids who are different.-Kim Carlson, Monticello High School, IA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
