While Ruby Redfort may be the most beloved book series of all time, fans should be wary. This series is not for the young at heart. While it is based on a real life character, it’s far from being kid-friendly. The show’s writing is influenced by the works of U.K. Children’s Laureate Lauren Child, who is also an award-winning writer and illustrator. She created the Ruby Redfort TV series after creating the Clarice Bean books.
Ruby and her family are the center of the series, but the characters are also diverse. Ruby is a tomboy, while her best friend, Clancy Crew, is a shy and soft-hearted girl. In the second book, she even wears heart-shaped sunglasses. The series’ antagonist, Lorelei von Leyden, is a genius of disguise, often passing herself off as dead jewel thief Nine Lives Capaldi. This is also how she tricks Ruby and her friends.
The series focuses on Ruby Redfort, a genius code cracker and daring detective who works for the top-secret SPECTRUM agency. She has always been special, noticing things other people can’t. As one of the smartest kids in the world, Ruby has the potential to do great things. Upon becoming a member of the SPECTRUM agency, she begins to crack codes for their top-secret operations. She also has a sidekick, a butler named Hitch. In the series, Ruby has a wide variety of adventures.
Ruby’s adventures are varied and often wacky. While the world she is part of remains mostly white, it does have a retro feel. It also has an easygoing pace and a few non sequiturs.
