The Spy Game, written and illustrated by J.D. Holiday
Eddie would love to have a puppy to play with. A puppy would pull on a rope, catch a ball and lick your face. But his Uncle brings Eddie an older dog named after a famous spy.
What can you do with an old dog? It probably could not learn new tricks, and the only thing this dog did was stare. It’s what they find to do together that makes them the best of friends!

The Spy Game is Fantastic
The Spy Game takes Eddie and Sidney, a large black older dog on an
adventure from their first meeting. Although large, Sidney is a sweet
dog. Eddie’s Uncle Reese brings him this dog (who he has rescued,) to
Eddie who was reluctant at first, having his heart set on getting a
puppy to play with. Sidney soon changes Eddie’s mind on that as they
help Eddie’s friends find a missing cat and her kittens. I love the
remarkable illustrations which bring the characters to life. Eddie,
Sidney and Eddie’s friends, Dana and Joel are like ‘real’ kids you
might know. I’ve read other stories by this author, and like J.D.
Holiday’s other stories, The Spy Game is a wonderful story about
friendship and love of a pet.
