Two sewer-loving alligators, Mango and Brash, are members of S.U.I.T. (Special Undercover Investigation Teams).  They go undercover at a bakery when world famous Chef Gustavo Mustachio goes missing just before the big reveal of his newest culinary masterpiece.  At the same time, the Science Factory is about to reveal their latest scientific breakthrough.  Why, yes, these seemingly unrelated events are related and it’s up to investiGATORS to unravel the clues.

If you think a mustache is enough of a disguise for an alligator to infiltrate a bakery and that a doctor can turn into a helicopter, you will enjoy this book.  If you wanted something more cerebral you wouldn’t have picked it up.  The plot kept adding in side stories like the helicopter/doctor or a Crackerdile, who wants to be remade after falling into a vat of radioactive dough, that sometimes made the storyline confusing, but the colorful illustrations compensate.
