The King of Kazoo

The King of Kazoo 
By Norman Feuti
Scholastic, 2016. Comics. 203 p.
Bing's familiar, a bluebird named Gypsy, brings troubling news.  There is a new hole in Mount Kazoo, and Bing has a feeling it is something sinister.  Her father, King Cornelius, is too busy trying to improve his public image to listen, until he realizes that saving the people from whatever danger lurks in the mountain will bring him the fame and glory he craves.  As they set off on their quest, Bing wonders if her biggest problem isn't the earthquakes, the wild Kroakers, or even the giant homicidal robot, but her father's king-sized ego.  This is a lighthearted graphic novel with plenty of excitement and laughs.  Feuti's full-color illustrations do a great job of storytelling and will appeal to both boys and girls of a variety of ages.
