Book Description

There's a new super spy in town!

Secret Agent Josephine may not look like a super mom, but when she goes to work, bad guys better watch out for her crafty tricks.

In this Secret Agent Josephine adventure, our heroine travels to Paris to scope out some new craft supplies and stop an infamous art thief. Donning disguises and stocking up on the tools of her trade, Secret Agent Josephine tracks the thief through the streets of Paris. But when she's spotted, will her crafting skills be able to get her out of a jam?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Every kid wishes for the glamorous, exciting adventures that only those with secret agent parents seem to have--and that's just what Bug (code name) gets. A high profile case finds the mother-daughter team in Paris where they use their crafty (literally!) tricks to capture a shady art thief. This hilarious and thrilling noir tours the City of Light with colorfully rendered characters, detailed settings, and zipping dialogue that'll have amateur spies reaching for their knitting needles and glue guns. Ages five and up." - ForeWord Reviews

"A spy caper set in Paris, and hits that illusive sweet spot of appealing to everyone with a strong female heroine (and her super-smart daughter), a devious art thief/bad guy and some hilarious craft-supplies-as-007-type-spy-gear visuals that made me snort." - Amalah, Alpha Mom

About the Author

Mother by day, Secret Agent by night! Or at least that's what I've been telling everyone on the internet for the last five years. The reality is I juggle motherhood and a bustling graphic design and illustration business all day long and deep into the night. The lines are blurred and that is what makes me a Secret Agent or a super hero, either one. My daughter is my muse and she creeps into my art in the most unexpected ways (sometimes literally).

Another hit for Brenda Ponnay. I have a soft spot for anything French and this new book is tres bon. I can't tell who is more enchanted with your witty story and illustrations...my grandkids or me? We all love it. The only question is...where will SAJ go next?

5.0 out of 5 stars Really fun story and great graphic design! December 27, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We're a family of Francophiles and this book is right up our alley. My daughter loves it - she's almost 7. She attends a French immersion elementary school, so the bits of French in this book added an extra bit of interest. Every book we read that has Paris as a background just makes us want to go there even more!

The vivid and captivating artwork in SAJ in Paris will charm all readers, young and old. The illustrations have such personality, they practically tell the story on their own. I cannot imagine anyone NOT loving this book. Buy with confidence.

I want to buy more copies as Christmas gifts. It is a shame that the hardcover is out of stock here, I have seen it on other bookstore websites . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book November 27, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My kids love this book, from the little details in the list of things Secret Agent Jo packed to bring to Paris to finding the sneaky Sean Slippy popping up in postcards. Personally, I love the telescoping knitting needles in Secret Agent Josephine's boots - and her groovy blue wig. The illustrations are beautiful - clear and full of detail, in Brenda Ponnay's signature style. They want me to read it over and over - and I've even caught my reluctant reader reading it to his little sister, so it's a winner all round.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Kids Book! November 18, 2013

This book is so really fun. The illustrations are lively and colorful. The story has many interesting aspects that go beyond the average picture book. My four year old has asked to read it every night since we received the book. He looks for where Sean Slippy will show up on the pages. It's also fun to teach some French terms to him. I would love to see a series of these, Secret Agent Josephine in London, New York, Cairo. How fun would that be!
