Memo: For Ministry of Strange, Unusual, and Impossible Things Operatives Only
A series of strange incidents have been reported in Belfast:
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.
A thrilling and hilarious middle grade story, The Ministry of SUITs by Paul Gamble gives its readers a silly, but oddly thoughtful adventure they surely won’t forget. But the wackiness doesn’t end here at all—it all continues in the sequel, The Monster’s Daughter.
