“The Bad Guys”

by

No one likes to be labeled.  In a new  juvenile fiction series by Aaron Blabey, the author  tackles the concern that certain characters are unfortunately labeled “bad guys.” In the opening pages of the first book in this series, the reader meets “Mr. Wolf.”  He demands of the reader the reasons why he is always portrayed as a monster.  He defends himself and his buddies–Mr. Snake, Mr. Piranha, and Mr. Shark.  He claims they are all good guys and, of course, they all get a bad rap.

After introducing all his friends, the four, who have now formed a “good guys club,”embark on their first mission.  They are going to release 200 puppies locked up in the maximum security city dog pound.

“The Bad Guys” is told with oversized drawn black and white characters with a minimum amount of text. Readers ages 7-10, especially boys, will appreciate the humor of this new series, especially if they liked “Captain Underpants,” and “Stinky Cheese Man.”
