Nesbit the chameleon grew up in a pet store so he doesn’t know what rain is. Cecil the toad is annoyed by Nesbit’s innocence about the way life works outdoors but Jeremy the earthworm has empathy for Nesbit. Usually the spring rain doesn’t cause any problems for the habitat but this year Cecil’s pond floods.

While Cecil always wanted a waterfront property he didn’t want his home to be under the water. Jeff the hamster arrives in a speedboat to help his friends. He’s seen something from his treeh

Cecil the toad, Nesbit the chameleon, Jeff the hamster and Jeremy the earthworm are in for an adventure. When it rains for a long period of time, the pond begins to rise. When the rain stops, the pond continues to rise and the animals are losing their home due to the high pond. They set off to investigate what the problem is. It turns out that a pair of beavers have moved in and created a damn. This is a great way to teach about beavers and their homes. The side story has Nesbit learning about b ...more

What better way to learn about beavers and the life cycle of butterflies then reading about silly Stinky Cecil and his friends.

This is a graphic novel for kids, and there is the Nesbit, the chameleon who comes from a pet shop, so doesn't know about living in the wild, so asks a lot of questions, that tell us about what life in the pond is like. He doesn't know what rain is, he doesn't know what about caterpillars and how they turn into butterflies, he doesn't know about much of anything. But the

Nesbit grew up in a pet store before moving to the pond. He has no idea what it’s like to live in the wild or where he fits in the chain of life. Cecil and his pond pals will have to help Nesbit along on his journey of self-discovery.

'Stinky Cecil in Mudslide Mayhem!' by Paige Braddock is the third volume in the funny graphic novel series for young readers, and that makes me happy.

Springtime is happening at Cecil's Pond and with it comes the rain. This is confusing to Nesbit the chameleon who grew up in a pet store. It's more concerning to Cecil as he sees the pond rising higher and higher. Before long, his house will be underwater. Is the rain causing the pond to rise, or something more sinister? And will Reggie ever get th

A new resident to the pond, a chameleon, is fresh from a pet store and doesn’t know anything, which Cecil finds annoying. More importantly, Cecil’s house gets flooded even though it’s no longer raining. You might be able to guess the reason before you see it.
Gophers being so industrious, it’s no surprise that particular animal has a boat. And a headlamp. And a fanny pack.
Cecil pretends to be smart, but he’d be a goner ten times over without his earthworm friend.
Hmmm, maybe Bigfoot is a giant bea

Cecil and his friends are getting worried because the level of the pond keeps rising and their homes are being threatened. Is the rising water just a result of the spring rains, or is something else going on?

A cast of cute critters introduce little readers to beavers and the metamorphosis of butterflies in this light mystery/easy graphic novel. The graphic novel format and the animals should draw in readers who may otherwise be reluctant to pick up a book. The mystery aspect leaves enough clues

If you want to educate children about the ways of beavers, and the life stages of a butterfly, it might be better done by something else - this features a chameleon who never changes colour and doesn't even try to eat flies, a hamster with an elevator in its tree, and more. Bright, wacky and daft all have a place, but this had too much. It's not offensively bad - it serves as a graphic novel for those very young and reluctant to read anything else - but I can't seriously recommend something as d ...more

My biggest irritation about this book is they didn’t find someone to hand-letter it. The fonts look super cheesy and pasted on. Other than that, it’s adorable, thoughtful, and accessible to transitional readers. I’m buying it!

When the spring rains cede and the water in the pond continues to rise, the animals homes are being washed a away in a flood. What or who is responsible? The animals will meet more creatures in their habitat- complete with science facts in the back!

*I received a digital copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*

The pacing of this book was quick and it suited the story perfectly. And it was FUNNY! All of the characters were great, but Nesbit was my fave.

This fun book is a cross between a beginning reader and a graphic novel. Stinky Cecil is a frog and he has always wanted lakeside living, but when that lakeside becomes a flood, it will be up to this frog to figure out what is going on, and how to make things better.

Stinky Cecil is a frog, not sure what kind of frog since he apparently gives off an odor when he is scared and that is a type of frog I’m unfamiliar with. Anyway, he has a bunch of friends like a chameleon, a fly, a worm and many others.

The artwork is very cutesy and I liked it. I can see little kids enjoying the look of it too. The writing was simple and easy to understand. My only fault is at times spacial and time awareness was thrown out the window. For example, in the book the Jeremy the Wo

Stinky Cecil is in a bad place! The river bank is flooding and destroying houses! Cecil and friends g on a (minor) quest to find out why the river is overflowing it's banks and save the day.

This graphic novel was well enjoyed by my daughter and son. They really enjoyed the illustrations and learned a lot about diversity.and how different lifestyles can accommodate each other.
