Review Quotes



...has heaping helpings of surreal alligator action and wordplay gags to keep new readers bent on solving the mystery. --The New York Times

With 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. Fast-paced fun for the bad pun and dorky joke crowd. --Publisher's Weekly

Like the heroes of Dav Pilkey's "Dog Man" or "Captain Underpants," the Investigators are bound to resonate with kids. --School Library Journal: XpressReviews
