The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Crazy Critter Race: 09/17/16
The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Crazy Critter Race by Maxwell Eaton III is the sixth in a series I very much enjoy. It's one of those graphic novels that's perfect to read over lunch. They're short and funny.
This adventure is an island race that promises a house boat for a grand prize. The set up those, for those old enough to remember, is a combination of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World (1963) and an episode of The Rockford Files, where Rockford and his crew have to out con a conman.
But in all fairness, the Crazy Critter con man isn't nearly as competent as the average Rockford baddie. He's constantly complaining "That's not supposed to happen!"
This series is as predictable as Babymouse, Lunch Lady, or Squish. You either like the shtick or you don't. In this case, I like it.
