Spy Guy: The Not-So-Secret Agent
Spy Guy is a kid (I think he is three, he’s pretty short). The Chief is Daddy. Daddy tries to help him be a spy. He tells Spy Guy not to shout (like he is). Spy Guy’s shoes are squeaking loudly (his dad is spying on him). Daddy gets him bright and colorful shoes. They are so colorful, everyone sees him. The Chief tells him to wear a disguise. Spy Guy camouflages as a bush–a red one. He sneezes. The Chief tells him to get healthy. He gives Spy Guy soup. The kid just slurps it all. The Chief tells Spy Guy he needs to sneak up on him. Will Spy Guy become a Chief himself? Read the book to find out. I like the pictures. They are funny. My favorite one is the disguise as a bush. There’s a spider that shows up in every picture, and nobody sees him. He is tiny (the spider is the so-secret agent). It’s fun to find the spider in the pictures. I like the end. It is funny. It was easy reading it. There were long words like “camouflage” that I read. I am good at sneaking. I want to play spy with my daddy.
