Praise

A goofball farce… this episodic volume offers two other cases for the crime-busting birdies, and young readers will make quick work of them all. Totally coo!” —Kirkus Reviews

Manic energy and flapstick comedy (get it?) ricochet through the chapters…. Dog Man and Inspector Flytrap fans are ideal readers for this perfectly absurd new series.” —Booklist
