This is book number 1 in the InvestiGators series.
Our cracked, uh crack team of InvestiGators, Mango and Brash have mysteries to solve! They must find a missing chef and who stole the scientists Thingamabob. Are the two crimes connected? Who is the person (who wears a raincoat on a sunny day) ordering a cake large enough to hide a dinosaur in? Is the big stove or medium stove missing? And who gets to wear the mustache? With their V.E.S.T’s (Very Exciting Spy Technology) given to them by S.U.I.T. (Special Undercover Investigation Teams) they (and us) will learn this and more.— Jeanette
John Patrick Green's goofy graphic novel series follows the super spy alligator duo the InvestiGators as they travel through the sewers and fight the forces of evil.
MANGO and BRASH are the INVESTIGATORS:
sewer-loving agents of S.U.I.T.* and scourge of supervillains everywhere!
With their Very Exciting Spy Technology and their tried-and-true, toilet-based travel techniques, the InvestiGators are undercover and on the case! And on their first mission together, they have not one but two mysteries to solve! Can Mango and Brash uncover the clues, crack their cases, and corral the crooks—or will the criminals wriggle out of their grasp?
*Special Undercover Investigation Teams
"...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 (Hippopotamister) 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
