Following a suggestion from Agent Snowy Owl, Scott has just announced details of the fantabulous new Design-A-Gadget competition.
Here's the information from Scott's blog . . .
All you have to do is think up a great gadget that would be really useful for one of our investigations - or generally for any spy or secret agent mission. You don't actually have to make the gadget (although if you wanted to make a model and send us a photo of it that would be cool), but you have to draw a picture or a diagram of your gadget and a description of what it is used for and how it works (no more than 500 words).
The competition is open to anyone of 14 or under. Please email your entry as a file attachment to Helen Moss via the "contact Helen Moss" link at the bottom of the About the Author page on this website (drawings or photos can be sent as jpeg or pdf files).
To give you plenty of time to come up with your gadget, the deadline for the competition will be April 30th 2013.
Shortlisted gadgets will all be displayed on Helen Moss's website, and there will be some signed books and other Adventure Island goodies for the winner.
