Memo: For Ministry of Strange, Unusual, and Impossible Things Operatives Only
RE: The Ministry of SUITs by Paul Gamble (winner of the Eilís Dillon award for a first children’s book)

A series of strange incidents have been reported in Belfast:

* Oddball kids are going missing
* There are several unconfirmed signs of pirates.
* A wild bear known to be a very sore loser at musical statues has escaped from the museum and is on the rampage.

Fortunately, our newest recruits, Jack Pearse, a curious boy skilled at logical thinking and seeing what's actually there, and Trudy Emerson, the most dangerous girl in his school, are on the case. As per Ministry policy, they are currently being trained in the use of The Speed (patent pending) and will have full access to Ministry supplies (assuming they manage to navigate the paperwork without going insane), so we are confident that they will succeed in their mission to discover and foil this villainous plot.

Please provide all assistance possible, as a) they don't know who they are actually up against, b) the world is much stranger than they realized, and c) they are only 12 and have to be in bed by 10 p.m.

P.S.-Could all Ministry operatives who have borrowed dinosaurs in the past two weeks please return them? We're running low on inventory.

About the Author:

Paul Gamble was born and brought up in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He currently works in the civil service. His job only occasionally involves working with dinosaurs. The Ministry of SUITs is his debut novel.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–6—Jack is constantly curious about everything, especially some odd happenings at his middle school. His misfit best friend, David, is the complete opposite. When the mean P.E. teacher punishes forgetful students by making them wear used, stinky, stained, and tight uniforms plucked from the creepy Box of Spares, Jack becomes convinced that the previous owners of these clothes were kidnapped. Also intriguing is a sinister new school sponsor who presents the school with puzzling gifts, including a wind turbine, new carpets, and polyester uniforms that look identical to the old. The same strange day, Jack's curiosity is rewarded by a job offer from Mr. Grey of the Ministry of Strange, Unusual, and Impossible Things (S.U.I.T.s), an organization that deals with creatures that no one believes exist anymore, such as pirates, dinosaurs, and zombies. He hopes by joining up he can solve the mysteries at his school. He almost changes his mind when he finds out that he needs to partner with scary fellow student "Moody Trudy." But he is impressed when he sees her demonstrate a Ministry technique in which she walks on the ceiling and defeats her foes with incredible acrobatics. Jack realizes that by making himself as miserable and unhappy as possible, he, too, can learn the Speed technique. Jack and Trudy's prowess comes in handy when they are attacked by half-man, half-lizardlike creatures; giant moles; and a steam-powered bone dinosaur. Gamble's debut novel is overflowing with offbeat humor, though the numerous footnotes and Ministry Handbook entries can be distracting and break the flow of the otherwise swift-moving plot line. VERDICT An entertaining read for fans of humorous adventure, such as Michael Buckley's "NERDS" series.—Diane McCabe, John Muir Elementary, Santa Monica, CA
