Andrew North Blows Up The World

Andrew “Danger” North is no ordinary third-grader. He, his brother Jack and his father are spies. At least, that’s what Jack’s always told Andrew, and everything Andrew’s learned from his dad's favorite spy movies tells him it must be true. So when Andrew finds Jack's graphing calculator he's 100% sure it's a communication device that will put him in touch with the secret spy headquarters. When he tries to make contact with headquarters through the calculator he accidently punches in a code that might blow up the world. As if that’s not bad enough, his math teacher confiscates the top-secret communication device. Now Andrew’s on a mission to find his brother's communicator and save the world from mass destruction.
