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."
"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."
"Santoso's wonderfully noirish illustrations make this book fun and engaging, as do Young's rhyme schemes and wordplay."
