Adam Sharp is a secret agent for IM-8, a secret agency hidden in the janitor's closet of Friendly Elementary. When the tv and radio suddenly stop working, only one channel plays: Happy Channel. Adam knows right away its an evil plot to take over the world and notices a sudden increase in hot air balloons over Australia. He travels to Australia to meet Alice Springs, a spy for the Australian secret agency and together they take down General Menace.

This book was simply written but appropriate for the age group (7-9). With a fun plot with lots of adventure and travelling across the world, Stanley creates an exciting stroy for young readers. Adam meets a famous TV star, almost falls out of a hot air balloon and notices an evil scam when everyone else is hypnotized. Code Word Kangaroo doesn't have any educational value or moral but this young Spy Kids/James Bond-themed story is sure to thrill kids and turn them on to reading. ( )

Gadgets, girls, and bad guys—Adam Sharp has everything the big boys have and more!
Fifty-seven channels, and there’s nothing on—literally! When the world’s television satellites are blocked by just one station, the Happy Channel, superspy Adam Sharp, travels to the Australian Outback to investigate. But will the help of IM-8 agent Alice Springs, TV snake-wrangler Wayne Wallaby, and two kangaroos be enough to combat the evil mindwashing of the Happy Channel’s puppy dogs, candy, and birthday cake?
In addition to the popular Golden Books Ghost Horse, Snake Camp, and Wild Horses, George Edward Stanley is the author of the Third Grade Detectives series for Simon & Schuster. George, a professor at Cameron University, teaches writing and foreign languages, including Albanian, Zulu, and Xhosa. The author lives in Lawton, OK.
