DO you think it would be hard to be a spy? In Lulu's opinion, it is, yes, it is hard. Lulu is the main character of this story. In the start of the book, Lulu screams and gets everything she wants, but when her parents go away on a holiday, someone named Mrs. Slonsky comes...DunDunDun!!! Mrs. Slonsky babysits Lulu and Lulu does not like her. If she wants to be a spy she has to do whatever Mrs. Slonsky says.
I really did like this book because it was funny. My favorite part is when Lulu screams a chant about Mrs. Slonsky. The chant changes through the story so read the book to find out. My other favorite part is when Lulu barricades the door in her house. It is funny because Mrs. Slonsky has to kick the door open!
I Recommend this book to 7-9 year olds. I think they would understand it and find it funny too.
