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.
“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
