Does your beginning reader need a new series? Introduce your child to The Bad Guys by Aaron Blabey. This relatively new series of graphic novels turns some stereotypes on their head.
A wolf, a snake, a piranha, and a shark go on a mission to do good deeds and prove to everyone they deserve to be heroes. All the carnivores must be convinced to join the Good Guys club. These hilarious novels will have your child laughing out loud at their antics as they seek to change public opinion about their species.
The series includes ten adventures so far. You can buy them individually or in sets of five. My eldest can read the entire book in less than half an hour, so you might want more than one or a library card to keep feeding your kids the latest copy. Readers can enjoy the books in any order, though the series builds from the first adventure.
