Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Penguin details (“Quigley puffed up his feathers”) and humor (“There was one tiny, krill-sized problem with this plan”) by Hay (the Undead Pets series) build the world alongside cartoon illustrations by Jagucki. A quick pace, an engaging mystery, and attempted inventions—a pair of invisibility suits made of sardines that uses “the same scientific principles” as the fish—will keep readers hooked on this series opener. Publishers Weekly
“Two young penguins angling for jobs with the FBI (Frosty Bureau of Investigation) solve a dastardly ecocrime…Fans will flock to their future capers.” Booklist
“A quick pace, an engaging mystery, and attempted inventions will keep readers hooked on this series opener.” Publishers Weekly
“Chock full of penguin-themed wordplay…Quigley’s inventions…are quirky and fun. This light, funny adventure series will appeal to elementary school mystery fans.” School Library Journal
