Read from ARC.

First in a new series. Will be a lot of puns, toilet humor and obvious jokes. Ages 7 to 10
I got this free—not in exchange for a review, but because the author is a nice guy and my wife and I are friends with his brother & sister-in-law.

Honestly I was disappointed when I started this book. I'd loved his Kitten Construction books, and this newest book seemed more like a Pilkey graphic novel. I could never get into those Captain Underwear and Dogman books—they were too low brow for me to find funny.

But as I read, I realized Green's story and dialogue were a lot more clever, and I
Thanks to School Library Journal for a review copy of this book.

This adorable graphic novel about two alligator friends who are detectives features Mango and Brash and not one but two cases to solve. Mango and Brash are going undercover, and won’t stop until they’ve cracked the case of the Chef Gustavo of bakery Batter Down, who has gone missing. They must also protect his secret recipes. Meanwhile, there was an explosion at the Science Factory that the InvestiGators have to figure out as well.

InvestiGators had me cracking up! I'm a huge fan of punny-humor, and this book has plenty of that! Brash and Mango are a great investigative duo, and I loved their antics. There are also some wonderfully bizarre side characters, like a doctor who was bitten by a helicopter; I'm going to be thinking about that for awhile. I'm hooked, and I can't wait for book 2! Fans of Dog Man will sink their teeth into InvestiGators!

Picked up the ARC at my work to read to my kid for bedtime story time. He did not want us to stop reading it! He is a fan. This kid-approved graphic novel is full of puns and silliness. Perfect for fans of Dav Pilkey.

Kids will love it, but there are some ethnic stereotypes portrayed for comic effect and the book as a whole tries too hard for the manic, over-the-top comedy of Dog Man, but never reaches it.

Super cute and whimsical. I'm excited for the next in the series.

First off, I am an adult, so I know I am not the target audience for this book, but I did rather enjoy Green's "Kitten Construction Company" so I was thrilled to get an ARC of this one.

The Cover: Awesome and eye-catching and sure to float right into hands.

The illustrations: Also awesome. Great appeal and funny visuals.

The text: Here's where it lost me to be honest. There was far too much puns, quips, etc. that it just seems a bit chaotic. This will not be a series that I will continue reading by
