Product description

She drives cars. She’s a PlayStation champ. She’s got a black belt in karate. And she’s a dog. Woof!

Agent GM451 (or LARA to you – Licensed Assault and Rescue Animal) is the world’s first spy dog. Her mission is to stop crooks and baddies, sniffing out their sneaky secrets! Now a gang of villainous headteachers are plotting to make their schools the very best. They’re creating a secret ‘superbrain’ formula which will transform their school results, leapfrogging them to the top of the league tables. The only problem is that the final ingredient is the brain of a child. The teachers will stop at nothing to grow the very best brain. They even ban playtime! Can Lara leap into action and foil their dastardly scheme? This fourth fabulous Spy Dog adventure will have teachers in stitches… while kids in the class are kept busy building up their brains!

    I thought it was funny especially when a poison dart hit a mans backside!!

    Lara is good as she is like a super hero dog. I enjoyed reading what she got up to.

    I didn’t like a lady in it called Damepayne because she was trying to steal a child’s brain.
