About the book --

Matthew is a normal boy in every way but one. He's a secret agent. But not just any kind of secret agent. Matthew is an eye spy! The enemy: The Look Cookers! The mission: The first day of school! The goal: Make it to school without being 'cooked'! In fact, Matthew is shy. He does not like eye contact. In his lively imagination, he envisions that anyone who looks at him has special powers - they are The Look Cookers. And he has a name for each type of Look Cooker: Peek Seekers, Glance Dancers, Blink Drinkers, Stare Darers, Gawk Stalkers, Gape Scrapers, and Sight Biters (the worst of the bunch!). Join Matthew on his mission, experience the Look Cookers first hand and discover how he overcomes his fear of eye contact and succeeds in the end. This is the first in a series of adventures penned by this powerhouse new team: the sensitive story written by Jim Malloy and illustrated boldly by Hannah Stephey will inspire children ages 6 to 10 to overcome their fears - and delight children of all ages with its message and imaginative style.

About the Author --

Jim Malloy began telling stories to his young children, James and Sara, as a way to entertain them at bedtime. With every new nighttime opportunity, yarns like The Misadventures of Baseball Bear, The Continuing Saga of Blue Bob and Yellow Bob, and The Little Girl Named 'Pots and Pans' sprang to life from his active imagination. Jim overcame shyness as a child and today enjoys a career that often requires public speaking - and eye contact. It is from those experiences, both as a child and an adult, that The Look Cookers emerged.
