We have all these graphic novels for children all over the house and I generally ask my 9 and 10 years old which ones they really like. I have to ask them, but they said they liked these. We have five of these Eaton books in the house and I picked this one up. The premise of Flying Beaver Bros sounds funny, and is, a little. And The Birds vs Bunnies war that they get involved with sounds funny, and that really is. The drawing is cute. To be really great children's graphic novels have to appeal t ...more

What a funny book! My students will love this tale of beavers and the feud between bunnies and birds. Just adorable and fun too.

This is probably an allegory of modern life, but I'm not going to think too hard about it.

I felt "meh" about this book. Wasn't good and it wasn't bad. So it's between the lines. Different for other people. But here's why I particularly feel that this book deserves three stars.


It's a really simple book. There were some humor in it. It might make you smile, grin, or giggle. Or literally making you laugh out loud. But all I did was crack some grins. Cute humor. It was easy to detect.

The story-line wasn't really pulling me in, at all. Kind of boring.

It starts with the beaver br

The beaver brothers get lost in a storm and end up on a different island; this one inhabited by birds and bunnies. By this time we know each book will be illustrated in the same colour as the cover so here we have shades of purple and grey. Many references to previous books and characters which will just seem unintelligible to readers who haven't read the previous books but will be fun to others who are keeping up with the series such as: "Give my best to Bruce." and "Fish Stix? Do you want one? ...more

The bunnies and the birds are at odds with one another, and the Beaver Brothers find themselves caught up in the middle of it all.
But, something seems funny about this all, they decide, as they spend some time entrapped in the "dungeon" at each species's camp. Both species are saying "Wally" funded the machine they use against the other species.
With a little quick thinking, the Beaver Brothers find "Uncle Wally", who kicks them out. And, they come up with a foolproof plan to show the animals

Could this book be any more perfect? The flying beaver brothers are just looking to relax on Acorn Isle but, things can never be that simple. Walter Mackeral, aka Wally, is up to his old schemes and has put things at odds on the isle by starting a feud between the birds and the bunnies. But, have no fear, justice is served in the most HE-larious and laugh out loud way.

This quick junior graphic novel will appeal to a variety of audiences but, is just right for junior, reluctant readers. I can't

Beaver brothers Ace and Bub get caught in the middle of a dispute between the bunnies and the birds of who should live on the island and where.

This is book #4 in the series and can be read as a stand-alone although there are a few places of confusion. It appeals to younger and reluctant readers, but may cause a few reading frustrations with words such as "ocular membranes." I somewhat liked this story, but am eager to see what the "real critics" think. My 11 and 8 year old sons are eager to snat
The Flying Beaver Brothers are just trying to rest and relax, but become stuck in the middle of a battle between the birds and the bunnies.

After being questioned by both sides and mistaken as spies for each of the warring sides, they figure out that none other than Walter Mackeral the Fourth is fueling the feud. His grand plan to have the island to himself is foiled by the Flying Beaver Brothers when they expose him for aiding both the birds and the bunnies.

A funny, fast read for fans of the Lu
It is unfortunate that the library only had volumes 1, 3, 4 & 5 upon my visit. I found out as I read this book that the villain is also the villain from book 2. Spoiler! But it's OK as these stories are quite predictable. In this volume the feud between bunnies and birds is being orchestrated by a fish, Walter, and the Beaver Brothers have to figure out how to stop it as they are caught in the middle which leads to a fun and quick adventure read.

The Flying Beaver Brothers Birds vs. Bunnies by Maxwell Eaton III and The Flying Beaver Brothers and The Mud-Slinging Moles by Maxwell Eaton III – I think these little beaver brothers, Ace and Bub, are quite the amusing ones- They have very distinct personalities and are some of my favorite characters who get into the oddest situations.
This was cute. I do wish I'd been able to read them in order as one character that comes back in this, I hadn't "met" yet. I feel like I should like this series more than I do. I'm hoping I can get a hold of the other volumes to round out my understanding.

Out for a fun sail, the brothers get stuck in a storm. They head for safety on an island, but find themselves in large cages built by bunnies. They are not the intended prey. Can they solve the problems on the island for both the bunnies and the birds?
A smarmy mackerel starts a war between the birds and the bunnies. Caught in the middle, the beaver bros have no choice but to negotiate a truce. I liked this one more than the first volume, but doubt I'll continue with the series.

My brother got a stack of these for his birthday one year, and I was curious, so I read them. They are cute books about the adventures of two beavers dedicated to saving the future of their island.

Super fun, totally absurd early elementary graphic novel. Text is simple enough for most first graders, but funny enough for third graders.

Wally Mackerel had turned the birds and bunnies against each other so he can take over their island and it's up to Ace & Bub to stop him!

A good addition into the graphic novel/comic book genre for younger readers. Not too much potty humor, so a nice break from the Wimpy Kid series and its ilk.

The brothers get caught between battling birds and bunnies, each of whom have weapons provided by the same backer. Hmmm. Time for a beaver intervention.

These books just keep me in stitches. I love beavers to begin with, but beavers that adventure recreate, have dry humor, look so cute, and care about the environment: perfect combination.
