fun stories about an animal class
Super-cute and full of adventure, MYSTERY CLUB is a great comic for reluctant or new readers in elementary school. Featuring a class of animals and their antics, this is a fun comic that is easy to get into. Each chapter features its own connected story, such as the formation of the Mystery Club, their attempt to solve the mystery of a missing teacher, and the finding of all the balls and frisbees that disappeared during recess in the crazy land beyond the fence.
With brightly colored illustrations of animals and funny stories, this book is sure to capture the imagination of young readers. The pages turn quickly in true comic style, with many things illustrated vs. written.
What I loved: The stories are entertaining and funny at times, which is sure to keep elementary schoolers engaged. Each section could be its own story, which allows readers to devour each section in their own time, making it great for early and/or reluctant readers. There is also great diversity in the cast with one child having two mothers, another worried about money (in terms of buying a gift for a birthday party), and another in a hijab. Although they are not people, it’s always great to see diversity in children’s books. The illustrations are also really great with a cartoony air that will appeal to the target audience.
Final verdict: If you are looking for a delightful and quick read, I highly recommend picking up this fun comic. With broad appeal to the elementary school audience, this diverse cast of students are sure to delight young readers!
