The Bad Guys

The Bad Guys
By Aaron Blabey
Scholastic Press, 2016. Intermediate. 139 p.

Mr. Wolf is tired having a bad reputation. Sure, he has had some run-ins with some pigs and a little girl dressed in red, but he has changed--and to prove it, he has created the Good Guys Club. He, along with other bad reputation carnivores--Mr. Snake, Mr. Shark, and Mr. Piranha--decides to do a gigantic heroic deed to prove it. But it’s hard to change your ways and not everyone understands that they are now the good guys when they try to rescue 200 dogs from the city pound.

A great fit for the beginning Intermediate reader or reluctant reader with its hybrid graphic novel feel. Sure to have kids laughing out loud and wanting the next in the series. But don’t worry: book two, The Bad Guys in Mission Unpluckable, is out already.
