Ruby Redfort Pick Your Poison

author/illustrator: Lauren Child

series name:
Ruby Redfort

Ruby Redfort: You can count on her if youíre between a rock and a hard place. A bite from a poisonous snake? Pass me the antivenom. Need someone to take the fall? You donít even have to ask. Stay one step ahead of trouble? Not so easy. There are always snakes to look out for, but they arenít half as poisonous as the rumors floating around Twinford. Itís a lot to chew over. Will Ruby pull through in one piece? When troubleís out to get you and being smart is not enough, do you run like crazy, or is it time to brush up on your martial arts?

Wisecracking, code-cracking girl detective Ruby Redfort gets an unexpected taste of the action in her fifth fast-paced adventure.
