The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Evil Penguin PlanFeatured
This first volume in the graphic novel series is fun and accessible. I read it with one of my ESOL students who has a very low English level, and he was able to have success with the book. Words like trophy, penguin, and competition were new to him at first, but the repetition and illustrations helped him master them quickly. Developing readers will feel the same sense of accomplishment. The pages have a good balance of text and illustrations, with some featuring wordless action.
Maxwell Eaton’s illustrations are simple and endearing. The beavers are among the cutest characters I’ve seen and they are at their most adorable while swimming through tunnels underwater. Fans of the Lunch Lady series, the Babymouse series, and the Squish series will love this book.
The writing is easy enough for developing readers to feel successful
