The Swindle Series for kids by Gordon Korman is comprised of three books; Swindle, Zoobreak, and Framed! The books are action packed with fantastic adventures, interesting mysteries, and good plot lines. The series is popular with middle school kids.


The Swindle series tells the adventures of sixth grade kid Griffin Bing. In the first book Griffin finds a Babe Ruth Baseball card, however S. Wendell Palomino, also known as Swindle, tricks him out of the card. Griffin and his friend Ben decide to get the card back at all costs because they need the money so Griffin won't have to move. They get a team of sixth grade friends with various skills together to get the card back.

In the second book, Zoobreak, Griffin and Ben again assemble a team to help their friend Savannah get her pet monkey back from the evil zookeeper Mr. Nastease. In the third book Griffin gets framed for stealing a Super Bowl ring at the middle school. A super strict principal, Dr. Egan, won't believe him and automatically suspects Griffin of stealing and being up to no good.

In each book, Griffin must rely on his friends to help him overcome some adult who is trying to trick him or just doesn't believe him. The books are action packed and fun.
