...has heaping helpings of surreal alligator action and wordplay gags to keep new readers bent on solving the mystery. --The New York TimesWith its rampant good-natured goofiness and its unrelenting fizz and pep, this feels like a sugar rush manifested as a graphic novel. Silly and inventive fast-paced fun. --Kirkus In high-intensity colors, straightforward panel artwork by Green (Hippopot-a-mister) offers plenty of slapstick gags to Brash and Mango's tale.
