A charismatic young boy turns an everyday outing into a thrilling, top-secret adventure in this energetic, offbeat picture book.

Secret Agent Man (S.A.M.) needs new shoes. His mom — er, sidekick, "K" (short for Kay) — takes him shopping. But the operation will be dangerous: to start with, Shoe Store Man looks shifty. "Frisk him," says S.A.M. With the help of a Team of Expert Spies and keen observation skills, will Sam find that his brand-new tiger-striped shoes convey a new superpower . . . and that he can now tie his own shoelaces? Imaginative play is the mission in this witty picture book with retro illustrations that cleverly merge S.A.M.’s escapades with the ordinary world. Roar!
