Move over, Lunch Lady
PLATYPUS POLICS SQAUD: THE FROG WHO CROAKED by Jarrett Krosoczka. Walden Pond Press, May 2013.
The creator of the LUNCH LADY series of graphic novels now gives readers a new treat: a mystery set in Kalamazoo City featuring the Platypus Police Squad. Meet Rick Zengo, the rookie, and his partner, the veteran office Corey O'Malley. There is a mystery to be solved, of course, this one centering around illegal fish. Zengo and O'Malley follow leads. Most of them end up with the two platypus cops up to their bills in hot water. However, they are determined to bring the culprit to justice. Humor, adventure, and a few red herrings (pun intended) add up to a book that kids who grew up reading LUNCH LADY will welcome as the next step in their reading. New fans are sure to find this book just as fun to read.
