Description


Two young adventure-loving and gadget-obsessed penguins find their dreams of joining the FBI (Frosty Bureau of Investigation) complicated by babysitting duties in Spy Penguins: Golden Egg the third novel in Sam Hay's hilarious action-packed illustrated chapter book series.

A legendary criminal has escaped from jail, and Jackson and Quigley are on the case! This time they will definitely prove themselves worthy of joining the FBI (Frosty Bureau of Investigation). There's just one small problem: the Egg. Jackson's mom has come down with the flu, and needs Jackson take her place helping the Egg compete in the prestigious Golden Egg Games.

With a criminal to catch, two thefts to solve, a competition to win, and an escape artist Egg to keep track of, Jackson and Quigley are going to need all the special agent skills and gadgets they can muster!

Praise For…


"An endearing story for fans of the animated film Ice Age and Kate DiCamillo’s Flora & Ulysses(2013)... An entertaining romp." --Kirkus

For Spy Penguins:

"Two young penguins angling for jobs with the FBI (Frosty Bureau of Investigation) solve a dastardly ecocrime in this Antarctic antic . . . Jagucki slips comical cartoon scenes featuring anthropomorphic penguins of diverse breeds into the well-leaded narrative . . . fans will flock to their future capers." —Booklist

"Penguin details (“Quigley puffed up his feathers”) and humor (“There was one tiny, krill-sized problem with this plan”) by Hay (the Undead Pets series) build the world alongside cartoon illustrations by Jagucki. A quick pace, an engaging mystery, and attempted inventions . . .will keep readers hooked on this series opener." —Publishers Weekly

"The first in a new series, this is chock full of penguin-themed wordplay . . .Quigley’s inventions, including an “invisibility suit” made of sardine poop, are quirky and fun, as are Jackson’s attempts to distract his mom from discovering his spy exploits. This light, funny adventure series will appeal to elementary school mystery fans." —School Library Journal
