An entertaining sequel! Banana Fox and the Book-Eating Robot by James Kochalka is the sophomore novel in the Banana Fox graphic series. In this installment, Flashlight teams up with William to save Banana Fox from library jail and the clutches of Sour Grape Junior. With Sour Grape Junior too young to be in prison, the son of B.F.'s nemesis is now "cleaning up" his act by working at the local library. Unfortunately for our yellow fox, the sour kid claims he owes a large fine and because he is now the bad guy is going to jail. It's up to Flashlight, William and Tur-Tur to solve the case.

This series is really fun. Banana Fox is a quirky character that is quick to jump to conclusions, resulting in some hilarious missteps. Flashlight is the real detective of the bunch, and she is good at spotting clues. While this one is a bit shorter than the first, kids will find B.F. funny and ask to keep reading to solve the mystery.

Colorful panels and easy-to-read bold type will give early independent readers the confidence they need to become lifelong readers. The artwork in each panel is detailed with little spilling over from one panel to the next. Shorter chapters give younger readers easily defined stopping points at just the right length.

Final Thought: A fun mystery with a friend to rescue, Banana Fox and the Book-Eating Robot is sure to catch the attention of even the most reluctant of readers.
