Staff Reviews

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

About the Author

John Patrick Green is a human with the human job of making books about animals with human jobs, such as Hippopotamister, Kitten Construction Company, and InvestiGators. John is definitely not just a bunch of animals wearing a human suit pretending to have a human job.

John lives in Brooklyn in an apartment that doesn't allow animals other than the ones living in his head.

Praise For…

"...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
