The Flying Beavers and the Fishy Business by Maxwell Eaton III
Those silly beavers are back again! This time Ace and Bub are worrying about a new volcano just off their island, and they should be...
Alfred A Knopf sent me a copy of this Junior Library Guild book to review (thank you). It has been published and you can pick up a copy at your local bookstore now.
Fish Stix Corporation has set up an operation to make sturdy sticks and sell them in large quantities. It just so happens they are using all the trees on the island to do it.
And, of course, Bob (their enemy) is in the middle of it again. He's their spokesperson on TV and has a beautiful new house and doesn't care if what they are doing is ethical or not. He even gets Bub on his side.
What will Ace do now? You'll have to get yourself a copy of this graphic novel and let your young one find out.
This is light hearted, slightly punny, graphic novel that children will enjoy. Why not share it with them?
