Spy Guy the Not-So-Secret Agent

May 12, 2015Spy Guy cover web, Harcourt Children’s Books

Spy Guy is a spy—but not a very good one. He’s too loud, too squeaky, and in need of a good disguise. All Spy Guy wants is to figure out the secret to spying. But as the Chief says, that he must discover for himself.

Fluffy fun that promotes visual literacy and will make a positive addition to interactive storytime collections. — School Library Journal

Children who love to play at being spies in their own homes and neighborhoods will appreciate the question posed by this hilarious and heartening book. . . . Santoso’s wonderfully noirish illustrations make this book fun and engaging, as do Young’s rhyme schemes and wordplay. Booklist

This is a fun blend of savvy parenting and on-point comedy. — BookPage

Santoso’s art conveys broadly comical action, and his slightly retro palette and exaggerated cartoon style are well-suited to the undercover prowess Spy Guy seeks. — Kirkus Reviews

Santoso’s crisp images and liberal use of white space keep the focus on domestic comedy . . . but it quickly turns into a tribute to savvy parental mentoring. — Publishers Weekly
