The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Evil Penguin Plan
This is a goofy book, a fast and fun read for young graphic novel fans. Ace and Bub are beaver brothers, who enjoy life on Beaver Island. While Ace prepares for the Beaver Island Surfboard Competition, his board is suddenly stolen by strange penguins, who escape to the deep waters offshore. In hot pursuit, Ace gets only a glimpse of their underwater hideout, but he knows that the penguins are up to something, and it doesn’t look good. Without his surfboard, he can’t hope to beat the island’s brawny hot shot, Bruce. So Ace and Bub decide to do some deep-sea diving of their own. Meanwhile, Bruce is out to sabotage Ace’s efforts in the surfing competition. Will Ace get his surfboard back? Can he and Bub figure out the penguins’ evil plan, and save Beaver Island from disaster? Will Bruce keep Ace from winning the surfing competition? These questions, and more, are answered with humor, action, and two penguins named Bob. The artwork is simple but full of life, the story full of sight gags and kid-friendly jokes.
Great for reading alone for out loud! Recommended for kids Grades 1 and up.
