Chapter One

The Sweet-Treat Spies

Sam Hay

It was two days before Christmas.

Thump. Thwack. Thud!

Malcolm, who slept in a little room above his dad's bakery, woke up with a

"Not again!" groaned Malcolm, who had a pretty good idea what it might be. It
definitely wasn't burglars, and it was much too early for Santa. It had to be
spies! Sweet-treat spies—sneaky thieves who were desperate to get their
hands on his dad's secret recipe books.
