KIRKUS REVIEW

If wearing handmade camouflage underwear on your head makes you a great spy, then Owen Foote might just be the next 007, but Owen and his friends discover that maybe there is such as thing as knowing too much. Spying on their families quickly gets boring and they decide to try more difficult and more dangerous missions. The ultimate task of spying on Principal Mahoney, an ex-marine, seems like the most dangerous mission yet and they find out getting caught can be one of the worst things to happen to a spy. This latest volume in the Owen Foote series will entertain young readers with its humor and creativity. Simple line illustrations of the camouflage disguise, the eye-blinking code, and an exciting chase scene add to the hilarity of Owen’s adventures. A lighthearted spirit and smart dialogue will keep young readers chanting for more of this funny fellow, even if they do end up wearing underwear on their heads. (Fiction. 7-10)
