Introducing Secret-agent Skye

Introducing Secret-agent Skye

"To say you’re a secret agent isn’t enough.
Our gadgeteer, is trusting and tough.
Skye, worked hard to learn her agent rules,
harder to earn her agent tools.
Skye was brilliant and resilient,
Her merits speak for themselves.
With awards on the walls and more on the shelves.
Skye was top of her class all the way
A proud secret agent every day.
Private-eye’s first assignments are assessed
Skye was prepared and always at her best
Tricks of her trade hidden up her sleeve
With communication, transmit, receive."
Roxanne Kiely - Author | Busy Izzy and Friends
[10-4 - is 'message received' in Morse code]
[10-3 is 'stop transmitting']

Here’s a fun fact about Morse Code - At the time of its invention, it was the fastest long-distance form of communication.

Morse Code allows ships at sea to communicate too. They communicate by using large lights.

Morse Code uses two different signal durations called dots and dashes and is named after Samuel Morse an inventor of the telegraph.

Busy Izzy and Secret-agent Skye, is the story about Izzy's friend, Secret-agent Skye, book four in the Busy Izzy and Friends series due to be published in 2022. It's an environmental story about how Izzy, Skye and their friends save the honeybees at Nix & Nax.  Also a brand new friend will be introduced.

Secret-agent Skye: Who, what, when, where, how and why. 
Let’s ask our volunteer gadgeteer.
She’s a real private eye.
She learned her first secret agent rule
At the “Busy Izzy Secret Agent Training School” (BISATS)
Why is she called “Secret-agent”?
What’s in her “S.E.C.R.E.T.” briefcase?
A briefcase full of secrets, gadgets and devices.
When Skye was little she didn’t play with dolls,
teddy bears and building blocks.
Skye made her own gadgets, disguises and safety locks.
She will help Busy Izzy when needed to track and find,
search and discover… identify!

Talkative Tess - Lyric Video with Animation
Talkative Tess - Lyric Video with Animation

Here at Busy Izzy and Friends we love our friends unconditionally and when things go wrong unexpectedly, sometimes a friend is all you need to be.

In book three in the series: Busy Izzy and Talkative Tess. Things did go a bit wrong when Tess was talking to her friends and not watching what she was doing.  SO a bit of paint was spilt and all over her friends.  At the time they were a bit upset with Tess, but soon got over it and realised it is important to always be a good friend.  Tess, apologised and all was well.  Busy Izzy had a quite word to Tess and said,

"Tess, things shouldn’t always be about you, and only be seen from your point of view. Listening to your friends shows that you care. They may have stories that they want to share. If we don’t listen, then we won’t learn. Talk to your friends, then give them a turn.”

Izzy was always friendly and nice, whenever she offered important advice.
