Juniper Kai: Super Spy Blog Tour (review & giveaway)

Juniper Kai: Super Spy 
By Laura Gehl 
Illustrated by Alexandria Neonakis 
September 3, 2019 
Two Lions 

Juniper Kai was born to be a spy. And while spies sometimes work alone, Juniper has always been able to count on her mom and dad to fill in as spy partners. Until now. Suddenly, Juniper’s parents are too busy and too tired to play with her. And when they start whispering behind Juniper’s back and making secret plans, she knows something really big is going on. So Juniper sets out on a new mission: to find out exactly what her parents are up to. And the answer might be absolutely spy-tacular! 

“Harriet the Spy would approve of this sharp-eyed investigator. This will be a read-aloud favorite for little supersleuths, particularly those with junior agents on the way.” —Kirkus Reviews 

Juniper Kai is a spy extraordinaire! With her handy spy tools, expert skills, and helpful associates (mom and dad), there’s no mission Juniper can’t succeed at...until her parents start to act sneaky and secretive. Juniper sets out to uncover the truth and discovers her best and biggest mission ever! 

Laura Gehl’s Juniper Kai: Super Spy is a truly spy-tacular and sweetly amusing picture book! With fun gadgets, lingo, and tools, Gehl expertly captures the fun and exciting spy theme. Neonakis’ absolutely adorable and engaging illustrations, so full of neat, silly details, wonderfully bring awesome Juniper and her thrilling spy world to life. Both author and illustrator capture the awe-inspiring and complex experience of expecting a new baby and sibling. 

With giggle-inducing spy antics; a diverse, clever heroine; and charming heart, this page turner will delight little readers and be especially helpful for those readers soon to be big brothers and sisters. 

Laura Gehl is the author of many popular picture books, including One Big Pair of Underwear, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld; the Peep and Egg series, illustrated by Joyce Wan; and My Pillow Keeps Moving, illustrated by Christopher Weyant.
