InvestiGators: Off the Hook by John Patrick Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another fun entry in the Investigators to read with the kids. The cast of characters continues to grow and reward re-reads of previous books with lots of references to previous events. It’s evident now that Green has written each book to lead into the next. I wonder if he has an endgame in mind or is just taking it one book at a time. Once COVID is over, if he comes back to Baltimore Comic-Con I’ll be sure to talk to him about it.
By now you should know if you like the dad jokes and verbal and visual puns that make up the Investigators series. I just realized that this is just a kid version of the types of jokes in The Complete Multiple Warheads (BTW – that is a VERY MUCH NOT FOR KIDS series). That’s probably why I enjoy Investigators so much. I like when creators take advantage of the medium to make jokes that only make sense in that medium (another example would be the joke credits in the Deadpool movie). This book is more of the usual jokes while moving along the relationship between Brash and Mango. So, if you like that, grab this book now!
