Spy Guy: The Not-so-Secret Agent
First sentence: Spy Guy was a spy. But not a very good one. Spies are sneaky. Not Spy Guy.
Premise/plot: Spy Guy wants to be a spy--a GOOD spy. So since he's having trouble being really sneaky, he seeks advice from the Chief (his father). His father is full of advice, which he gives out a little at a time. Will Spy Guy ever get it right? Will he be able to sneak up on the Chief?
My thoughts: It was cute. I liked it. It's sweet to see a picture book focusing on fathers and sons. But the text itself is not overly sweet or precious. It is action packed. It even has a BURP. I really liked the illustrations too.
