50 Years of Bond

The name's Bond . . . James Bond. Also known as Agent 007. He first appeared in a series of books by Ian Fleming, but catapulted to fame on the big screen. On October 5, 1962, the first Bond movie, Dr. No, introduced a larger audience to the Aston Martin-driving, shaken not stirred martini-drinking secret agent. And now -- 50 years, 6 actors, and innumerable Bond girls later -- the 23rd film, Skyfall, is in theatres.

My dad is a HUGE fan (On Her Majesty's Secret Service, George Lazenby's only Bond film, is his favorite), and he passed that love on to me. And now that I'm a children's librarian, I want to pass that love along to the next generation. How else will we keep James Bond in our midst for another 50 years? So here's a list of youth-friendly Bond books. After that, you'll find the complete list of Bond books and movies for adults available at the Hoover Public Library.
