Eaton III, Maxwell The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Crazy Critter Race (Book #6) Chronicle Books, 2015. $6.99 GRAPHIC NOVEL
Ace and Bub enter a tree planting race to win a houseboat. Their
biggest competition are the raccoon sisters. When the tree’s turn out to be
invasive giant vines, they know something is wrong. Can they stop the other
racers from planting more seeds, or will they be forced to buy a houseboat
because the land is overrun.
This is not my favorite graphic novel series, but its really
wholesome and wouldn’t be a detriment to your library collection. I think the
plot could be confusing to kids, and I don’t find much humor in the stories.
The artwork is really basic, sort of like Squish or babymouse.
