Bad Machinery: The Case of the Good Boy

We rated this book:


If you are after a story to read that is full of crazy, then Bad Machinery: The Case Of The Good Boy is exactly what you are looking for. It is like Scooby-Doo meets the cartoon 6teen. The group of kids try to be detectives and are easy to relate to and like video games, gossiping, and have big imaginations. When Mildred wins a magic pencil from the carnival, babies start going missing and a weird dog shows up. Now they just have to figure out how they all relate and how to solve the mystery.

There is so much going on in the story that I had to read it twice. The story does jump around between the kids – that can a bit crazy at times. The pages are in full color and have a lot of detail, but not too much like you find in a lot of adult comics. Each of the characters have their own personality and their expressions are drawn to match exactly what is going on in the story and you get a feel for the story even without reading it. All of this makes it a really fun book I recommend for all ages.
