    One thought on “Agent Darcy and Ninja Steve in...Tiger Trouble!”

    1. This is a very enjoyable read. I bought a copy for my friend's daughter and she LOVED it! There are strong, smart female characters, the book is well paced and well written, and most importantly, its FUN to read! I am an adult and I had a great time reading it, I would absolutely recommend it if you need a gift for someone in elementary - middle school. It's a fun, humorous read with lots of good takeaways for younger readers!

    2. This is a book. I really enjoyed reading this book. I can see how young readers would be caught up in the action.The vocabulary is such that young readers will have no trouble following all parts of the adventure no matter how fantastic it seems.A vivid imagination lets you visualize exactly what Darcy and Steve are seeing and feeling.My grandson will love this book and keep it for his future children.I hope there are more Agent Darcy and Ninja Steve books.

    3. I won this book from Giveaways. Thank you!My 8 year old son is DEVOURING this book. We'll definitely be looking forward to the next book in the series!

    4. Potential SpoilersThis is a terrific adventure story with a sense of whimsy and fantasy. Nominally written for kids, the humor and action are genuinely good for all ages.The kids in the story are believable. They may go to special schools where they train to be Ninjas or Secret Agents, but they have regular life concerns. Ninja Steve is following in his older sister’s footsteps. The instructors at his school seem to compare them constantly, and Steve feels this is unfair, especially when his s [...]

    5. I won this book in a Giveaway. I have a 8 year old, and she loved this book. A book that combines ninjas and spies, I was excited. Ninja Steve's family is comprised of Ninjas! They walk on the ceiling, flip and spin through the air at will, wear black all of the time. And the agents, they are as strict and agent centered as is to be expected. Told from alternating point of views. A girl named Darcy and a boy named Steve and they come together and end up having to fight a tiger.

    6. Originally posted on on thebookforums/201 If you can’t tell by the summary this is an incredibly fun, self-aware book. Are Ninjas and secret agents silly and full of clichés? Of course. But does Grant Goodman know that and pock fun at those clichés? Heck yes! There are so many ways Agent Darcy and Ninja Steve could’ve gone wrong, but I’m glad to say that this is an enjoyable book from start to finish and a great one-time read.As I said, Agent Darcy and Ninja Steve is an extremely fun boo [...]

    7. Today We DidNinja Steve lives in Ninjastoria, where everyone wears masks and ghosts are real. He is an average student that keeps getting compared to his genius older sister. Apart from his swordsmanship, he really isn’t living up to her standards! In another land, Agent Darcy is a student at the Bureau of Sneakery, where she is one of the top students. When Agent Darcy and her rival, Agent Serena, are sent on a student exchange to Ninjastoria, they have to work together to complete their miss [...]

    8. An action packed story filled with rules, good guys, bad guys, learning the ropes, team work, and also learning to trust the people you didn't think you could. I enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to reading the next book. I got this for free in a Giveaway.

    9. Can we start by talking about this synopsis? This book sounded wonderful from the very start with this wonderfully funny blurb favorite "and why is there a menacing tiger on the cover?" oh my, I laughed out loud and still think this is a clever marketing scheme. Love it.Now on to the book itself, this book was a pleasant surprise. It was super action-packed, witty, fun, and I think a middle grade reader will absolutely love it. The story is told from alternating point of views; a girl named Dar [...]

    10. Jokes. Wit. Easy flow of story. Fast paced plot. All things you need if you want to capture the imagination of the younger generations.That's what Grant Goodman delivers with his MG novel Agent Darcy and Ninja Steve in Tiger Trouble, a very promising first installment in this series.Goodman has a great, engaging style of writing that suggests that he's been writing for years, a style that also suggests that he knows his target audience well. The whole story flows nicely, getting straight down to [...]

    11. The rest of this review is at Night Mode Reading : At first I wasn't sure about this book. I knew nothing about the author either. But here I am, giving it five stars for oh so many reasons! First of all, it's not gender-orientated, and that's something I miss in the book section for younger audience. Second - the fantasy is tremendous in this, I'd say it's Willy Wonka and no less. Ninja sits on the ceiling if they must, and that's a fact you learn to accept while reading. No one's there to expl [...]

    12. When I was little, I wanted to be a secret agent. And a ninja. I am not kidding. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw both "agent" and "ninja" in just one book title. I had a feeling this was going to be a fun-to-read book. And I was right.Read Agent Darcy and Ninja Steve in…Tiger Trouble! by Grant Goodman if you want to go on a fun and exciting adventure and if you want ninjas, agents, and ghosts (and a tiger, of course) in just one story. (I’d also recommend it to my ten-year-old ni [...]

    13. A middle grade book that an adult can enjoy?? Yes please. And yes that happened. A fun book to read for review. I wanted to read it because the title seemed intriguing enough but not gonna lie I didn't think it was going to be a great read.I was expecting an hour or two a day of 'okay'. Pleasantly surprised that that was not the case. A fun and entertaining bookn't wait to add it to my "May Reviews" on my blog soon!!Thanks as always to the wonderful peeps here at for my free copy of this book i [...]

    14. What an imagination! Quite a fun, fantastical story for young readers. It really reminded me of the Harry Potter series, so I'd say that's quite a compliment! It has plenty of action, magic weapons, ghosts, ninjas, secret agents. I like the structure of the book, using wider spacing & shorter chapters that make it more manageable for young readers. Kind of a surprise ending, tho.!I must disclose that I did win this book in a First Reads Giveaway program, in return for my own fair & hone [...]

    15. I love these books! They're so much fun, in a great imaginative world. While they may be listed as meant for young readers, I am a huge fan at 28 years old. There are moments that make me laugh out loud, which as we all know isn't easily done in a novel. This is going to be a great series of books, and I can't wait for the next installments!!

    16. Such a fun read! Goodman had a very easy flow of writing that made the story so smooth and fast-moving. I ended up really liking the story for a few different reasons. First, it was action-packed and kept me reading.

    17. A great reading! Funny and entertaining! Highly suggested!Read more about great readings for kids on The Serial Reader Blog.

    18. Fun light-hearted read, definitely aimed at a younger audience and quite short, but I'm keen to try another

    19. This was absolutely adorable, hysterically funny, and my 13 year old son loved it! One of the most fun reads I've had in a long time!

    20. @kidlitexchange #partner I enlisted my husband's help in reading this series, as they are exactly the sorts of books he would have devoured as a child. We agree that the characters have unique and distinctive voices, and we love that they think and act like kids. In the world of Agent Darcy and Ninja Steve, it feels like anything you can imagine can happen. The books are weird, creative, and fun to read - and definitely made for kids. Kids will want to have This would be a great independent read [...]

    21. I got “Agent Darcy and Ninja Steve in Tiger Trouble” for a nephew. After reading the first few clever pages I read it myself (so I can talk to my nephew about it, you understand). It’s a clever, fast-moving, creative book. One problem is it has so any unresolved threads. What are the Mecha-moles up to? Where are the missing people? Will Agent Darcy get in trouble for breaking the major rules? Will she recover or be threatened by the scars left from fighting the tiger? Will Nora still pick [...]

    22. Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book - all opinions are my own.There is a lot of action but very little description. It would be good for struggling readers who need that constant action. There is a lot here--secret agents, ninjas, ghosts, magic, sci-fi. I think this would make a better comic book.

    23. Read Agent Darcy and Ninja Steve in…Tiger Trouble! by Grant Goodman if you want to go on a fun and exciting adventure and if you want ninjas, agents, and ghosts (and a tiger, of course) in just one story.

    24. Agent Darcy and Ninja Steve by Goodman. This was a rather different story for teens where their failings, etc don't get in the way of a serious fight. Will they suffer for their impetuosity. the Sneaky crowd or will they defeat the monster?

    25. The writer has a great, engaging style of writing that suggests that he's been writing for years, a style that also suggests that he knows his target audience well. I loved this books, I'll definitely read more of this story if there is a next installment.

    26. You can read my full review with the link: hereThis book was a joy to read. Middle-grade readers will love the story and the adventures the main characters go on together. The structure of the novel in particular, using wider spacing and text, would appeal more to younger readers.It's a quick but enjoyable read that I know many children as well as adults will love. Younger readers will have no trouble keeping up with the pace and words of this novel. The end of the novel has just enough mystery [...]

    27. Review with teaching tools: unleashingreaders/?p=8322This book was such a fun read! Goodman had a very easy flow of writing that made the story so smooth and fast-moving. I ended up really liking the story for a few different reasons. First, it was action-packed and kept me reading. Although it was the exposition of what I assume will be a series, it never was slow or boring. Goodman introduced aspects of the plot in clever ways. Second, I love that there is a boy and girl narrator. It is not ge [...]

    28. I won a copy of this book in a giveaway.I would say this is a light-hearted fantasy adventure that is perfect for the tween reader. What kid doesn't like secret agents and ninjas? The main characters, Darcy and Steve, are both fun and believable. The story moves quickly along with lots of interesting details that keep the reader involved. And the end tells us that there are more adventures coming!
