The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Hot Air Baboons: 09/05/15

The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Hot Air Baboons by Maxwell Eaton III: This time it's baboons and they have a too good to be true promise.

The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Hot Air Baboons by Maxwell Eaton III is the fifth of the series. It opens with the brothers Beaver skiing only to suddenly be stuck in the mud where snow should be! Someone or something is flash melting the snow off the island's central mountain.

This time it's baboons and they have a too good to be true promise of providing the island with plenty of water by melting the snow and collecting it into a giant swimming pool at the base of the mountain. They only ask for a little bit of the collected water for use on their own island.

Of course nothing is ever that simple or that fair. The beavers have to put an end to all this rapid fire melting and save their island, and the water before it's too late.

It's another fun read. It's not as original as the first couple ones, but that's to be expected with so many books now in the series.

Four stars
