Swindle book cover by Gordon KormanSwindle Series and Movie

In Swindle by Gordon Korman, an evil collector cons Griffin out of a million-dollar baseball card so he unites a ragtag group of his classmates to take down the swindler. It’s a valiant adventure that will take them through a daring heist, a vicious dog, crazy inventions, and a superb acting performance, but throughout it all, the kids have to bring their skills together as a team to get justice. Swindle is the perfect combination of action and adventure, but it is also funny and true-to-life at the same time.

There are 5 other books in the Swindle series: ZoobreakFramed, ShowoffHideout, and Jackpot. And . . .did you know there is a movie version, too? Look’s who’s in it: Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande from Sam & Cat; Noah Crawford and Chris O’Neal from How to Rock; Ciara Bravo from Big Time Rush; and iCarly’s Noah MunckSwindle movie cast photo

And to get even more psyched, play the Swindle Spot the Difference Game. (I only got 3 out of 9. This game is IMPOSSIBLE!)

    I had no idea that there was a movie!!! When did it come out? Are they making one of Zoobreak? But seriously, this is the best movie in all eternity! (In my opinion)

      Yeah I am reading the showoff one and the part I am on is where they are at camp and Darren vader is up to something and if Luthor is really missing or if Savannah and Griffin are hiding or sneaking around and secretally hiding Luthor in a secret cabin by the Lake!

    In my opinion the movie ruined the books. It had a completely different tone than anything the books had. I love the book series, though.

    I love the book Swindle, but I have not seen the movie. It looks like a great movie and I want to see it so bad!!!!!!

    I loved the movie swindle so much. It is amazing that they have the book. What I like about the movie books is that you can read the book rather than watch the movie because reading is much more better than sitting around all day and watching something on a screen. I can’t wait to get the book.
