Platypus Police Squad: The Ostrich Conspiracy

We rated this book:


I am a huge fan of the Lunch Lady graphic novels by author Jarrett J. Krosoczka, who wrote this book, Platypus Police Squad: The Ostrich Conspiracy. This book is part story and part drawings, so kids get a nice blend of both and that sometimes helps kids read more. I know I still really like having pictures in my books. First of all, this book is like part mystery and part comedy. Detectives Zengo and O’Malley have a new case: to solve the mystery of what is going on at the scene of a film set and figure out why someone would want to do this. What does movie star Chase Mercy have to do with it, and what is the Mayor hiding? Can the Platypus Police Squad get to the bottom of this?

There are some serous topics talked about in this book about lying, not being honest, and how important it is to take care of the environment because it can seriously affect our soil and water that we drink. I thought it was funny they use boomerangs as their police weapons. This helps keep the violence out of kids’ books. I liked this book and I think it is a book series both boys and girls will really like and read over and over!
