Meet secret agent 00 Elephant, the BIGGEST and WORST secret agent the world has ever seen - a brilliantly funny new character from rising-star author Eoin McLaughlin and bestselling illustrator Ross Collins.
Watch out, supervillains. There's a new spy in town . . .
Secret Agent 00 Elephant has struggled through his secret service tests and how he's ready to take on his first spy mission: to find feline supervillain Vincent le Morte and stop him from destroying the world.
He just needs to stay away from those mini pizzas . . .
Good luck, Agent Elephant. The world is counting on you.
AND REMEMBER: DO NOT GET DISTRACTED BY THE MINI-PIZZAS!
Eoin McLaughlin was born in Ireland and has since lived in locations as far-flung and varied as London, Hong Kong, Reigate, Tokyo, York, New York, Oxford, Amsterdam, Newcastle and Watford. He now lives in Surrey with his wife and their young son. A childhood spent obsessing about becoming a spy inspired Eoin to write the story of Secret Agent Elephant - and he ate a lot of mini pizzas in order to get into the mindset of his elephant hero. Secret Agent Elephant is Eoin's second picture book, following The Hug, illustrated by Polly Dunbar.
