Kirkus Best Book of 2021
“Action-packed, clever, and uproariously funny!” —Lincoln Peirce, New York Times
bestselling author of the Big Nate series
★ "Harrell’s full-color graphic-novel charmer is over-the-top fun, filled with fast pacing, abundant silliness (pig puns abound!), and a well-developed plot and characters, that nevertheless does not rely on humor as its sole support . . . The social tribulations of being part of a trio of friends will resonate with middle-grade audiences. This is an absolute must-read for fans of Dav Pilkey’s Dog Man series. Readers will go hog wild for this lovable hero." —Kirkus
, starred review
"Irreverent, animal-based humor drives the segments as art emphasizes close-ups and comic asides to accentuate comedic payoffs. With strong linework and anthropomorphic animal designs reminiscent of Saturday morning cartoons, Harrell’s story will delight fans of Dog Man and InvestiGators." —Publishers Weekly
"The book’s punny humor, dad jokes, and pure absurdity may win the day here, especially for fans of Captain Underpants
or Moyer’s Ham Helsing: Vampire Hunter.
