    1. One thing that sets Ruby Redfort apart from Nancy Drew and Alex Rider is that Ruby dont get called into Spectrum and LB or Hitch said oh you got a mission, this is the gadget you need bla bla bla. Or in Nancy Drew case we usually have an old woman crying :" Nancy someone stepped on my zuchinni pls help me find the culprit".The style in Ruby Redfort is the case wasn't always clear cut. Clues and signs are dropped, is up to Ruby to figure out whether there is a crime or not. At the same time every [...]

    2. I received this book as an ARC from Random House, and since I've been meaning to check out the Ruby Redfort series for a while, I figured it was a sign. I have never read the Clarice Bean books by Lauren Child, but from what I understand, Clarice reads the Ruby Redford books all the time in her books. It was this meta-fiction aspect that made me interested in the first place.In this book Ruby is trying to learn survival skills as part of her secret agent training, but can't seem to stop overthin [...]

    3. I really enjoy reading the Ruby Redfort series by Lauren Child but this one fell a bit flat for me. I don't believe it was as mysterious and charismatic as the last ones and ended very suddenly in a few chapters at the end.Even though the book was so, so, so long (filled with a lot of unnecessary chapters) I loved being transported back into the world of Ruby Redfort and Clancy Crew. Also, the ending leads you onto the next book and leaves you asking many questions. I've always liked the charact [...]

    4. Wow I just really loved this book! When I saw that it was in the library I immediately got it since I had been waiting for a long time for the next ruby redfort book to come out. I really liked it. I loved the ending too. But it could have been a little more interesting like the other books ( I'm talking about the whole book not just the ending). Anyway I still loved itWhen is the next one coming out?!?!!

    5. Another adventure featuring our favorite junior-high spy. This time Ruby will have to put her newly learned survival skills to the test to solve a perfumed puzzle involving offbeat characters, exotic animals, and a seemingly invisible jewel thief. So grab your bubblegum and follow your nose into the exciting third installment in the Ruby Redfort series.

    6. When i heard that this book was coming out, i excepted it to be quite less exiting then the first two books. But i found this book exciting and it builds up a lot of tension. It is extremely hard for me to put down this book along with the other two.

    7. I found it a little harder to get into than the others, but once I did I could hardly put it down. I can't wait for the next one!

    10. Why I decided to read this book:I actually got this as a gift awhile back but it seemed WAY too lengthy. After a little bit of reading, I actually found myself enjoying this mystery book. It's written about a teen and I can relate to the stuff that Ruby goes through.Why I liked the book:I'm into Nancy Drew books so reading this was heaven for me. It was the perfect balance of teen and undercover and mystery. Even though there were a few chapters that could've been removed, I still loved the stor [...]

    11. Pure fun. I love spunky Ruby with her outspoken t-shirts, best pal Clancy Crew, butler Hitch, and code-cracking adventures. I would totally recommend this series for any lovers of Nancy Drew mysteries. They have the same clean feel, but with an updated sense of humor. The codes and plot-lines are fun and unpredictable.

    13. It just keeps on getting better. The fact that it keeps me from putting the book down in each page is intriguing. My old habit of reading when it's dark is coming back.

    15. In her third adventure, Ruby Redfort faces her biggest challenge yet: survival using not just her wits, but her instincts. While Ruby is great at memorizing rules and solving intellectual puzzles, she has trouble trusting herself in moments when the rules don't matter. With her suitability for work with Spectrum called into question, she must work with Hitch to prepare for a second test. In the meantime, strange things are happening in Twinford: rare animals are on the loose, expensive jewelry i [...]

    16. Copy received from Young Adult Books Central and reviewed there. Ruby is still working hard to train for Spectrum, this time taking wilderness survival training. She doesn't do especially well, and is worried that she will be let go, but there are several mysteries going on in Twinford. Jewelry is missing, and odd wild animals are seen around town. When Ms. Swann, a famous perfume maker, has a launch at the Twinsford department store, Ruby is assigned to go and watch for criminal activity, and j [...]

    17. It is a truth universally acknowledged that the best super-sleuths are eccentric geniuses (I may or may not have just watched the latest episode of Sherlock) and Ruby is most certainly one eccentric super-sleuth (but a flawed one - not a special snowflake). I'm giving Ruby Redfort: Catch Your Death the four stars my pre-teen self would have rated it. It's fun, keeps you guessing, encourages you to crack codes and solve puzzles yourself, inspires and informs you about science (and helps you to fi [...]

    18. This time, Ruby is going to face her death. Going though basic survival training camp, Ruby passes, but is told she needs to let her instincts guide her. Unfortunately for Ruby, she relies on her brain to do everything she does. While she is doing this, another situation arises. Wild animals are roaming around town, jewelry is stolen, and perfume surprises seem to be linked to each other. It's Ruby's chance to prove herself - in surviving the wild and proving that she can still be a secret agent [...]

    19. Just as action-packed and past paced as the first two installments of the Ruby Redfort series, it's safe to say that Catch Your Death was definitely not a disappointment. I loved the survival theme to this book - it added a new side to Ruby and her capabilities (or lack of), and was interesting to read this different approach to her and her duties as a secret agent. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The codes were just as interesting to read and learn about, and I actually managed to figure o [...]

    20. Third time is the charm. Have read the first two Ruby Redfort books aloud to my eight year old daughter, along with many Clarice Bean and Charlie and Lola books. We first became Child fans when we read her illustrated version of Pippi Longstocking. Lauren Child bends the rules so that the words become artful illustrations.We just completed the third Ruby. It is by far my favorite. I enjoyed the other Ruby Redford books, but felt the other two books were a little over-the-top. This one strikes an [...]

    21. My review for ACL: Thirteen-year-old genius code breaker and secret agent Ruby Redfort faces her most difficult challenge: the possibility of her own failure and expulsion from Spectrum. After a less-than-successful survival field test, Ruby must overcome a doozy of a cold, figure out why strange and possibly extinct animals are roaming the town, and step out of her comfort zone to stop a mysterious and perfume-related plot. With short chapters peppered with secret codes and intrigue, this fast- [...]

    22. I've always been a fan of the Ruby Redfort books for the nostalgic retro, wisecracking, sarcastic spy thriller with a great cover design. I thought this one wasn't as much of a strong counterpart to the previous books in the series (Take Your Last Breath was my favorite), the mystery was a bit low-key, and less climactic than the others, but I enjoyed much more the role that Clancy plays in this book as less of the normal friend, but more of the loyalty and cool-under-pressure that Ruby normally [...]

    23. I think in this review I will list the good and bad things about it.I liked the ideas, and I think that the subject of smell is quite interesting the way the author put it. But there were quite a few loose ends that no one will remember in the next book but didn't make sense in this one. And also, a warning about the edition I read, the publishers gave the book a smell. Of bubblegum. A very sickly smell. :P. Which lingers on your hands afterwards. Also (view spoiler)[How come Ruby hasn't noticed [...]

    24. Many books start to get a bit poor by the third one, however, this is most certainly NOT the case with 'Ruby Redfort: Catch your death'. I absolutely loved this book, and I think it is a good idea to intersperse survival facts throughout the book. In my opinion, the plot was really clever, and I cannot believe that more people haven't reviewed it yet! The characters are not unrealistic, especially Clancy, who is always a dose of reality. And it is good how it's not always action and fighting, th [...]

    25. I was sent the ARC and I thought I would give it a shot. I haven't read any of the previous Ruby Redfort books but overall I still enjoyed this one even if I didn't understand some references. I thought it was an intelligent spy novel with a very smart and likeable character. I felt like the story dragged for quite a bit in the middle but thankfully it picked up at the end. While the mystery isn't fully solved by the end of the novel I assume it is a continuing theme throughout the rest of the s [...]

    26. Although this series is considered a children's series, I absolutely love the Ruby Redfort books! They are such an easy read, perfect for someone reading the series through busy periods, in my case exam period. The fast pace of the storyline makes it difficult to put the book down, and the unpredictable outcomes of Redfort's schemes keep you hooked throughout the series. If you enjoy books about 13 year old code-cracking spies, toasters that deliver messages, and loyal friends who look out for e [...]

    27. I love the Ruby Redfort series and this book has not let it down at all. Some may think these books are aimed at younger readers, but they're not. This is definitely a teen-fiction book. It doesn't have any inappropriate content, but the style in which Lauren Child writes would possibly be harder for younger readers to interpret.All in all, it was a very enjoyable book and I'm now currently reading book 4.

    28. 3.5 starsRuby Redfort is a precocious middle school student who is an undercover spy. Her parents remain oblivious through her many adventures (and mis-adventures). This third book in the series sees Ruby fail at survival camp but then has to put these same skills to use in order to solve a mystery concerning vanishing objects and a new perfume.Perfect for younger readers with above average reading levels; Good read-alike for the Mysterious Benedict Society series.

    29. When is this book coming out in the USA? My dad and I have read the other two and it is SO hard to wait for this one to come out!UPDATE: This book still is not out in the USA. COME ON! But a friend got it for me and now that I have read it, it's pretty good. My favorite is still number one though and I'm still angry this isn't out in the US.

    30. I liked it and all, but it took too long for me to get in to it. There were too many second chances and wasn't that interesting. It took 24\25 chapters to get in to it.
