About the Author
John Patrick Green is a human with the human job of making books about animals with human jobs, such as Hippopotamister, the Kitten Construction Company series, and now the InvestiGators series, all from First Second Books. John is definitely not just a bunch of animals wearing a human suit pretending to have a human job. He is also the artist and co-creator of the graphic novel series Teen Boat!, with writer Dave Roman. John lives in Brooklyn in an apartment that doesn’t allow animals other than the ones living in his head.
As a school librarian, I think this is a very entertaining graphic novel which will rise among the ranks of DOG MAN and DIARY OF A WIMPY KID. I laughed out loud more than once and I know my students will get a kick out it! There are so many solid puns and jokes in this book that I am so excited to read the next books in the series. There's a bit of potty humor but nothing that is concerning in the slightest, in fact, I think it was actually well-done and really made me laugh. I would fully recommend this to any kid who loved DOG MAN and is looking for the next hilarious graphic novel to fly through. Will absolutely be purchasing for my school library! Thanks to First Second Books & NetGalley for the chance to read an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
