"Hay dishes up another lickety split caper, presented in generously leaded lines that share space with frequent views of penguins of diverse species in lab coats or cobbled- together spy gear. Hatchlings with a taste for sweet, uncomplicated mysteries will devour it. " -- Booklist Online

"The Spy Who Loved Ice Cream is every bit as much fun as Spy Penguins. ... The illustrations and fast-paced, fun writing will keep readers coming back for more." -- Mom Read It

Praise 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 breed 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--a pair of invisibility suits made of sardines that uses "the same scientific principles" as the fish--will keep readers hooked on this series opener." --Publishers Weekly

"The first in a new series, this is chock full of penguin-themed wordplay, including a popular penguin pop star named Justin Beaker. 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
