Gr 3-6
This second volume picks up right where A Cheese Related Mishap (Don't Eat Any Bugs, 2005) ended: the wacky kingdom of Pellmellia is covered in cheese after Professor Eggner von Shmoodledike's experiment goes awry. Reigning King Houngadounga then discovers that his palace is behind on its rent, and that a band of cookie-selling pirates is looking to usurp it. A silly, madcap adventure ensues as the two rivals compete for the kingdom. Visually exciting, this volume offers a variety of mediums from Claymation-styled art to eye-catching digital effects. Content-wise, however, Yarg! is a less-cohesive story than its predecessor, relying more on wackiness to drive the plot forward; with its high amount of action and blatant silliness, it is highly reminiscent of many Saturday-morning cartoons that are high on style and low on substance. There are three stories in this volume, mirroring the setup provided in the first collection. The second two stories are not as strong as the first, one being primarily text-based and somewhat anomalous in this graphic novel and the other, a loony sepia-toned tale of two kooky birds. Overall, this book will probably appeal to readers who enjoy a busy visual landscape and many sight gags.
