The Bad Guys, Episode 1, Review

Review for Aaron Blabey‘s The Bad Guys, Episode 1, by guest reviewer Ella Sharpe, bookseller at The Younger Sun Children’s Bookshop in Melbourne.

Master story-teller and illustrator Aaron Blabey has a wonderful new story for middle primary kids. If you think Mr Wolf, Mr Snake, Mr Piranha and Mr Shark are bad guys, think again. Mr Wolf has a plan to show that he and his friends are really good guys, in an aptly named gang ‘The Good Guys’. These friends are sick of being labelled ‘bad’ and are out to prove just how good their intentions are.

How, you ask? Step one is to rescue a kitten from a tree. Step two is a little more risky. They are going to free puppies from being locked up in the pound. But will their terrifying appearances get in the way of these daring rescues? And more importantly, will Mr Wolf ever stop hugging everybody? 

You’ll have to read it to find out. Funny and quirky, this book will have you in stitches as you follow the adventures of ‘The Good (definitely not bad) Guys’. This is the first instalment of what is sure to be a great series so watch out for the next one. 

Age Recommendation: 7+
