    Hola Mira,
    I have just begun reading Agentes Secretos with my 9th grade Spanish 1 class and they love it! The class is largely made up of boys so the plot really works for them. Its so much fun to see them using the Spanish.
    I was wondering if there are any supplemental/ancillary materials available as of yet?
    Again, I am so enjoying the book — thank you so much for all your creativity!
