Sprinkles: So Caramel, it seems that you found yourself a new graphic novel!

Caramel: Yep.

S: So tell me a bit about it.

C: It is about two alligators named Mango and Brash who investigate crimes. They are a part of S.U.I.T. which stands for Special Undercover Investigation Teams.

S: Wait, what kinds of crimes can two alligators investigate?

C: All types of crimes. For example, they solve a crime about a break-in at a science factory.

S: What is a science factory? Do you mean a science lab?

C: Yes, I think that is what it is practically, but it is called a science factory in the book.

S: So are the other creatures in the book also alligators?

C: No, there are some humans, and there is a were-copter. That is a human who turns into a news helicopter sometimes.

S: Okay, that is the wackiest thing I heard today.

C: Yes, the book is pretty wacky. I’m good with talking alligators, because, after all, we are talking bunnies. But there is a flying thing called a Sea Orb which is a flying eyeball. It is all pretty weird.

S: But is it good weird?

C: Yes. it is very good. It is very funny.

S: So then “funny” would be one of the three words you would use to describe this book. Right?

C: Yes. Well actually, I should have said “hilarious”. And my other words would be “colorful” and “exciting”.

S: So the crimes they solve are interesting and the book keeps you on your toes as you pursue the criminals with the two investigator alligators, right?

C: Yes, exactly. Maybe you should read it too, Sprinkles.

S: You know I am not very good with graphic novels, the writing is often too small for me.

C: Oh, but the writing in this one is actually a bit bigger. So maybe you could read this!

S: Hmm, that could work I suppose. And you really seem like you enjoyed it.

C: Yes, I think all little bunnies would like it.

S: Well, that is a strong endorsement! So did you know that there are a few other books the same author wrote (and illustrated) that involve these two investigator alligators?

C: At the end of the book they tell us. But I did not know before I started reading this. And I think this is the very first one in the series.

S: Does it end in a cliffhanger?

C: Kind of. There is a criminal they have not been able to catch yet, he is a cracker, a saltine to be precise.

S: Wait, I am confused. The cracker is a criminal?

C: He was not always a criminal, and he was not always an evil cracker. He was originally a crocodile and was actually working for S.U.I.T. before. Remember that is the agency that Mango and Brash are working for. But then he fell into a vat of radioactive cracker dough and became one with the dough. So he became a cracker that way.

S: Okay, that is pretty weird.

C: Yes, I know. But anyways, so that criminal is out on the loose and probably they will see him in the other books.

S: That truly sounds like an open thread left there for future books, you are right. So maybe you will indeed read some of the other books. We will see.

C: Yes. We will see. But we should also share with our readers the trailer we saw of the book!

S: Sounds good. Here we go:

C: That is hilarious! And I love it!

S: I agree. It is really funny in a sweet, goofy way! So this is a good time to wrap up this review then. What would you like to tell our readers?

C: Stay tuned for more book bunnies reviews!

  1. Well, I guess you could say the author has a goofy imagination.. Gator detectives, a human helicopter and a flying eyeball, are not part of an every day experience and I can see how Caramel would find it hilarious.
