Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 3
Genre: Graphic novel fantasy
What did you like about the book? This full color graphic novel features two friends, Pirate Penguin and Ninja Chicken, who are always playing jokes and trying to outdo each other. Half of the book consists of short cartoon adventures, like lengthier comic strips, and the second half is the “feature presentation.” Incredibly silly gags and slapstick humor with a good dose of gross-out humor.
To whom would you recommend this book? Readers of Dave Pilkey’s Captain Underpants and James Kochalka’s Dragonpuncher will enjoy these.
Who should buy this book? Middle school and public libraries
Where would you shelve it ? Graphic novels
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
