This episode of THE BAD GUYS has the crew planning for a way to stop the aliens and help the big bad wolf, who is now Godzilla-sized and tearing down buildings. Told in an easy-to-read comic book style, most of the action is in the illustrations rather than the text. This is best read in order for the context of the previous books and to know who all of the characters are. The book does end in a cliffhanger for the next episode also.

What I loved: The images here are fantastic! A lot is conveyed through the black-and-white comic book style. The characters are all really well drawn in Blabey's comic style. The text is well-suited to the images and a lot of action occurs in the book (they are, after all, in the middle of an alien invasion). This series would be great for readers who are looking for a lot of action, images, and are in between picture books and chapter books (or reluctant chapter book readers). This really takes the bad guys and turns that on its head in a fun and approachable way.

Final verdict: Best read in order, this installment of THE BAD GUYS is action-packed and sure to be entertaining to elementary-school-aged readers. With fantastic illustrations and the right amount of text, this is a fun read- to be continued in the next book!
