Summary

Summary

"The Flying Beaver Brothers are back! All is not well on Beaver Island. Ace and Bub have noticed a number of things (trees, houses, evil penguins) sinking into the ground. They soon discover that Captain Jo Jo and his scurvy crew of mud-making moles have hatched a nearsighted plot to steal dirt from Beaver Island to make their own island home even bigger! Can Ace and Bub stop their brotherly bickering and save Beaver Island before it disappears forever? "


Author Notes

"MAXWELL EATON III grew up in Vermont, where he spent his childhood climbing trees, damming streams, and spying on unsuspecting cows. He now creates children's books in Tucson, Arizona, where the trees can't be climbed, and the streams run dry, but the cows are still relatively unsuspecting. He is the author and illustrator of The Adventures of Max and Pinky series,  Two Dumb Ducks,  and the Flying Beaver Brothers series."

Horn Book Review

In these installments, beaver bros Ace and Bub combat a slew of nearsighted moles stealing Beaver Island's dirt for their own depleting island then get caught in the middle of a bird-bunny territory feud over on Little Beaver Island. The speech-balloon text is deadpan, and the dynamic comic-panel illustrations--pen-and-ink with monochromatic digital coloring--feature plenty of action paired with onomatopoeia. [Review covers these titles: The Flying Beaver Brothers: Birds vs. Bunnies and The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Mud-Slinging Moles.] (c) Copyright 2014.
