Reading is my Escape
Why is everything on our island sinking?  
Must be the moles.
This is a cute story about two beaver brothers who try figure out why things on the island are sinking into the mud, and then trying to stop it. The illustrations are simple and use orange, gray and white colors. The characters are cute and in the end they learn that they need to work together to succeed.
Kids will enjoy this one.

Brian was a hoot. "I found pants from my brain!" Classic
I think boys would especially love these stories. Can't wait to read the next one.

House Children's Books.

I have to be honest and say that I did not like this book. I found it a bit confusing at times because not every box was explained. However, the title and jammed packed action would be very exciting for young reluctant readers. The beavers that are trying to save their village as well as the penguins were cute characters.

These books are so cute. Children's graphic novels about Beaver Brothers that solve cutesy little problems in the forest.
Everything is sinking into the ground in puddles of mud, and the animals are getting annoyed. Enter the Beaver Brothers to find out why.
What they find is an elaborate operation by moles to steal all their dirt and replace it with mud. Both brothers come up with a plan to stop it, and one of them works out. It doesn't matter which one, as this ending reunites brothers in wo

This one is more like the first with a sugar rush of non-stop action and slapstick comedy. I'm not fond of the beaver brother themselves, but the penguins are still here, now in their own home as spoken of in the last volume. New characters introduced are the moles, of course, but also the marmot brothers who also live on the island so we may see them again. But no sight of the fish from the last volume though the volcano has now turned into a mountain. Lots of references to previous volumes suc ...more

This title would be a good suggestion for reluctant readers. The flying beaver brothers seem to have environmental issues in both of the books I have read. They are explained in a simple way and the brothers always have a plan, even if it doesn't quite work out as expected. Plenty of kid appeal.

In this book moles are sucking the dirt out of the island (to add to their own island) and replacing it with mud causing many things to sink.
Things are disappearing on Beaver Island, more like sinking to be exact. In this adventure the Flying Beaver Brothers uncover a plot to build up mole island by stealing dirt from Beaver Island and replacing it with mud. Though they have a little trouble working together, the brothers manage to save the day with a little mess and lots of humor.

Great series for fans of Babymouse, Squish, Lunch Lady, and Captain Underpants. Grades 3-5.

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.

The beaver brothers Ace and Bub both want to put a stop to the moles' plan of trading their island's sand for mud.

I got a few short chuckles out of this graphic novel. Although it lacked substance in plot, it is perfect for the intended audience. This series would be great to introduce to reluctant readers too!

The Flying Beaver Brothers' island is being hit by huge mud blobs and even the penguins don't know what is going on. When they can't work together, they each set out on their own to solve the problem and rescue the island. What is a Holey-Moley? Will they survive?
Oh no! Everything is sinking into the ground on the Beaver Brothers' island! Could it be that those moles on the big boat are doing something to the island? Find out in this not-quite-as-awesome as the first book, but still decent title in the Flying Beaver Brothers series!

I enjoyed that this volume examined the brother's differences and how they work together but I just didn't find the mole plot engaging.

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.

This book is written in comic book style. The reading would be very good for silent reading and I can see where it would appeal lot 2nd and 3rd grade.

Bub and Ace have to defend their island again--this time from vision impaired land-grabbing moles and a brain dead marmot. Happens all the time! Soooo much kid appeal in this fun and frenetic series.

The flying beaver Island was getting invaded by mud. Everyone could not work together to solve the problem so they had to do it independently.
