My Grandparents are Secret Agents by Scott Christian Sava
This was cute and quick. It was very simple and drawn with bold, bright colors. Grandma and Grandpa are trying to stop the evil Purple Haze, who's trying to make it the 1960s again by stealing different components to make a time machine. Alyssa and Nicholas take the news that their grandparents are fighting crime very well, and off they all go on their adventure! Their grandparents provide the children with a robot dog to look after and protect them, and the robot dog ends up saving the day.
There wasn't a whole lot to it, but it was certainly fun and I think would be a great read for elementary students. And we get to learn about how things aren't always what they appear, and that your old grandma might actually be a kick-ass crime fighter!
