Additional Notes

From The Publisher*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. With a lot of trial and even more error, can Spy Guy figure out the secret to spying?
From The Publisher*A little guy just wants to be a spy in this funny, rhythmic picture book about sneakiness and perseverance, featuring a sweet father-son bond. 
Review Quote*Fluffy fun that promotes visual literacy and will make a positive addition to interactive storytime collections." -School Library Journal "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 "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 "Santoso's wonderfully noirish illustrations make this book fun and engaging, as do Young's rhyme schemes and wordplay." -Booklist "
