The Flying Beaver Brothers are back, and this time they're hot on the trail of another eco-villain: Fish Stix  Environmental Manufacturing. When Fish Stix sets up shop, most of the islanders are thrilled. After all, Fish Stix are the most popular, best-selling sticks around AND they're good for the environment! But this eco-friendly facade is just a cover for a nefarious plot involving dirty money, fish who walk on dry land, and a great big smoking volcano. It's up to the dauntless beaver brothers to set things right—and they better do it fast or the island's forests are history! Now if only Bub can stop napping and they can all make enough pancakes to save the day. . . .

This second installment to Max Eaton's new graphic series ups the ante in terms of both action and humor. The Flying Beaver Brothers are poised to take off as beloved comicbook heros

A Fun, Environmental Graphic Novel

Ace and Bub, The Flying Beaver Brothers, are back for another graphic novel adventure. This time they are pitted against a corporation, Fish Sticks Environmental Manufacturing. When the brothers literally fall into the path of the company, they uncover information about this allegedly eco-friendly business that reveals...it's evil. Luckily, the brothers are clever and athletic, skills that will help them in their quest to defeat the bad guys.

While the first book in the series was not overtly environmental, this book takes more of an activist approach. Author Maxwell Eaton's choice to make green the main color of this book ties in nicely with the theme. The illustrations remain as cute as in the original and I hope that they make plush Beaver Brothers toys some day.

The reading level of The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Fishy Business seemed to be much higher than the first in the series. I read both books over the course of two days with a low-level ESOL student. He struggled a lot with the more complex vocabulary and heavier emphasis on text in this book. Hopefully readers who have gotten hooked on the series will not be frustrated by a more challenging reading experience.
