Medieval Mayhem #4 (Zoo Patrol Squad)

We rated this book:


Medieval Mayhem is an action-packed mystery graphic novel set in a zoo filled with talking animals. The story is centered on a traveling renaissance faire, which suddenly sets up inside the zoo. The main characters are the Zoo Patrol Squad, a pair of adventurous detectives who act like zoo police. In this case, the Zoo Patrol Squad has to figure out who is stealing their special keys, which can open any door in the zoo.

This is a short graphic novel that is easy to understand. I think that it is a good read for elementary school students, although the comic format is a little informal to fit well within a school library. Any library with children’s comics within its collection should stock this book. I think that elementary school children could enjoy owning this comic book, especially if they like superhero stories.

The plot line is fairly simple and the text is not superb, but that is not necessary in a graphic novel. The imagery is well done and very full, bringing the story to life. Medieval Mayhem is a great story for young lovers of superhero and mystery comics.
