Spies in Disguise: Boy in a Tutu

Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.
Free sample

Joe thought he had the hang of this undercover thing. Sure, he has to dress up as a girl and change his name to “Josie” to keep his family safe, but he can still play soccer, and his new friend Sam knows his secret so he at least has someone to talk to. Not to mention, it’s finally time for Joe and Sam to learn how to be proper spies—gadgets and all! Joe is prepared to prove to his parents that he’s ready for a big mission.

Their first mission isn’t exactly what either of them had in mind, though. Joe and Sam have to go undercover . . . as ballerinas! Joe isn’t thrilled about the idea of wearing a tutu, but he’s more than ready to track down the potential thief of a soccer memorabilia exhibit at the local community center. He will dance like a flamingo if it means keeping the coveted keepsakes of his favorite sport safe.

Unfortunately, Joe and Sam have very different ways of approaching the mission and their tactics clash. Once best friends and partners-in-spying, they now are determined to crack the case without each other. When Joe’s parents get word from HQ that an enemy spy is on their trail, there is no other option for Joe and Sam except to put their differences aside and work together to solve the case.

The day starts out like any other until Joe gets home to find his parents packed and ready to run! His dad hands him a disguise and they’re out the door, his mom driving the family to safety as if she were in a Formula 1 car while his dad works the dashboard like an experienced computer hacker. What is going on?

Joe’s parents are no ordinary mom and dad. As professional spies, they are experts in their field, but they’ve been undercover so long that they thought their secret was safe! Now, their covers have been blown, and they’re going to need to start over somewhere else. This time, Joe’s in on the mission. And he’s going to have to go undercover. As a girl.

“No way,” says Joe. “Absolutely no way!” But his family’s safety is the top priority, and the people who are after them won’t be looking for a family with a girl. Joe is about to become Josie, and it doesn’t matter if the tights itch his thighs or that it’s drafty under his dress. It’s up to him to keep his family safe! He’s on a mission, and there might be some pretty cool gadgets involved. Dive into a new chapter book series that is sure to keep you laughing from page to page.
