Limited collector's edition of Spy Ski School, the fourth book in Stuart Gibbs's Spy School series, featuring an exclusive jacket with shiny silver foil and a full-color map of the Lionshead ski village on the reverse side—plus 16 pages of bonus content, including super-secret spy reports and post-operational interviews.

Ben Ripley enrolls in ski school, where the slopes, and the stakes, get really steep in this follow-up to the Edgar Award-nominated Spy School, Spy Camp, and Evil Spy School.

Twelve-year-old Ben Ripley is not exactly the best student spy school has ever seen—he keeps flunking Advanced Self Preservation. But outside of class, Ben is pretty great at staying alive. His enemies have kidnapped him, shot at him, locked him in a room with a ticking time bomb, and even tried to blow him up with missiles. And he's survived every time.

After all that unexpected success, the CIA has decided to activate Ben for real.

The Mission: Become friends with Jessica Shang, the daughter of a suspected Chinese crime boss, and find out all of her father's secrets. Jessica wants to go to ski school in the Rocky Mountains, so a select few spy school students are going skiing too—under cover, of course.

Ben might not be able to handle a weapon (or a pair of skis), but he can make friends easy peasy. That is, until his best friend from home drops in on the trip and jeopardizes the entire mission...

The students and spies are back this time taking ski lessons to find out why a Chinese businessman/crime lord is in the United States. Ben is the leader this time since someone must get close to the crime lord's daughter but Zoe must rescue him. Alexander is again in the dog house and mayhem ensues when Mike finally realizes the Ben is telling him the truth about Spy School. I enjoy this series. It is fun and laugh out loud funny! I like how the students all have some skill that can be used by the group. Together they make up one spy but I like watching them work together to win.

Join Ben for His First Official CIA Mission - Operation Snow Bunny As anyone who has discovered the wonderful books of Stuart Gibbs know, when you pick up one of his books, you are in for a great story, fun characters, and a few laughs. It’s why I can’t wait to read each book of his that comes out. He’s returned to the field of espionage with Spy Ski School, the fourth tale about Ben Ripley, and it’s another great read. Ben has been activated for his first official CIA mission, and he’s thrilled. His mission is to learn how to ski. Okay, so it’s a bit more complicated than that. Chinese businessman Leo Shang has been on the CIA’s radar for years, but they have never pegged anything on him. He’s going to be in Colorado so his daughter Jessica can learn to ski. Ben’s mission is to befriend Jessica, gain her trust, and use that to learn what her father is up to. Yes, there will be danger, but Ben is enthused by the assignment. He’s never been skiing, and he’s never been to Colorado. His friends from spy school are also going on the mission. It sounds wonderful. However, when he arrives, he realizes that Jessica is always surrounded by hulking body guards. Can he get close to her? Will he learn what Leo’s plans are in time to stop them? Now, I should probably point out that Stuart’s books are aimed at middle schoolers. Ben himself is a teenager attending the top secret CIA school for future spies. So if you have a kid you are hoping to get hooked on a great read, be sure to pick these books up for them. However, don’t you dare overlook them for yourself. See, these books start out with a great story. Oh, we may know that Leo has some evil plan and Ben will wind up stopping it, but the hows and the whys are enough to pull you in right away and keep you turning pages. I couldn’t read the book fast enough to learn what was going on. Furthermore, we meet some fantastic complications along the way that make things even harder for Ben and his fellow spies. Naturally, we have some very suspenseful action scenes before we reach the nail biting climax. This is far from a boring read, but this is a spy novel, after all. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Meanwhile, there are the characters. Fans of the series will be glad to know that the regulars are all here and some of them get more page time than normal, which is a good thing. We also get some surprising character development before things are over. I know I can count on Stuart Gibbs’s books to give me some laughs along the way, but this had to be the funniest yet. The laughs came perfectly from the characters and the situations they were in. I was laughing all the way through the book, but one line in particular caught me so off guard that I couldn’t stop myself from laughing long and loud. So no matter what your age, if you are looking for a book that in completely entertaining, drop everything and pick up Spy Ski School. You’ll be happily turning pages and then looking for more books by Stuart Gibbs to enjoy.
