Title: The Bad GuysBad guys kids will clamor for this early reader

Author: Aaron Blabey

Target: Grade 2-8

Series: This is the first book in a planned series

What this book is about:

Mr. Wolf has not been particularly happy with the way he has been portrayed. Just because he is known for impersonating Grandma doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy. He gathers his friends, a shark, a piranha and a snake in an attempt to create the Good Guys Club and rehabilitate their image. His friends are not so sure … they like meat. But off they go to save a kitty, not eat a kitty and with that success, a dog rescue is soon in the works. Will doing good change these carnivores? Can the bad guys really swear off their evil ways?

Why I love this book:

  • This is funny stuff. A lot of sarcasm, word play, slapstick humor and fart jokes keep the laughs coming. But dare I say the humor is smart so both kids and adults will love this book, yes even the fart jokes.
  • The illustrations are perfect. Whether we see kitty starring at four sets of sharp teeth, or shark dressing up as a lovely young lady to fool the dog catcher, the pictures add so much to the text and the humor of the book.

Who this book is for:

Great for reluctant and early readers. This book gives off a big kid vibe and so I imagine that both younger and older kids will really enjoy this one.

Final thoughts:

I can’t wait for the next one in this series. A winner!
