Overview

In a fresh and funny new companion to the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award winner, the fox sisters team up with their friend Eugene in three spy-rific adventures.

After Zelda, Ivy, and their best friend Eugene watch the new Secret Agent Fox movie (some more bravely than others), they are inspired to do a little detective work themselves. With top-secret agent names chosen and notebook in hand, they’re ready to get to the bottom of neighborhood mysteries. But when a rainstorm threatens to ruin the agents’ campout, can the three foxy friends come up with an undercover alternative? Sly humor, lively illustrations, and a genuine eye for the everyday dynamics among siblings make this a perfect choice for beginning readers, whether old fans or new.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marcie Flinchum Atkins
Zelda and Ivy and their friend, Eugene, have some hilarious adventures in this easy reader. Divided up into three chapters, the three friends first go to a movie. The movie is scary and Ivy is not sure she really wants to watch it. She frets during the entire movie, but at the end of the movie, it is Ivy who does not mind watching it again. In the next adventure, the three friends want to become secret agents, even giving each other code names and a code word to abandon the mission. They investigate their neighbor who is mowing her grass in mysterious glasses. When she invites them in for cookies, they discover why she wears the safety glasses. In the final adventure, the threesome plans to have a campout, but it begins to rain. Their parents orchestrate the camp-in complete with eating out of a cooler and roasting marshmallows in the fireplace. This book is perfect for beginning readers. The subtle humor will keep grown-ups who read this book aloud happy too. Reviewer: Marcie Flinchum Atkins
School Library Journal
Gr 1–3—Three new, entertaining episodes about the fox siblings, just right for beginning readers. On entering the movie theater to see Secret Agent Fox, Ivy expresses anxiety about viewing the loud and scary parts, but her big sister offers reassurance. Once the action scenes begin, Ivy and her friend Eugene are enthralled while Zelda spends lots of time on the floor looking for a vague "something" as she chants "It's just a movie, it's just a movie." In the next chapter, the young foxes choose secret agent names and investigate their neighbor Mrs. Brownlie, who is suspiciously wearing goggles. When she discovers the trio behind her hedge she invites them to join her for freshly baked cookies. Eugene marks the "case closed" when the woman mentions that the gear protects her eyes while she mows the lawn. In the final episode, the friends nearly cancel their campout when it begins to rain, but Zelda states: "Just like a good secret agent, a good planner always has a backup plan....We're going to camp IN." The distinctive gouache resist illustrations add lots of humorous details and textual clues for beginning readers. A wonderful addition to the series for existing fans or new readers.—Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI
