Beavers Bub (who'd rather be napping) and Ace stumble upon a Penguin plot to turn Beaver Island (where the big Surfing Competition is held) into a frozen Penguin Vacation resort. Thought they are warned by Bob and Bob (2 messenger penguins) not to reveal what they know, Ace is determined to stop this dastardly plot. Bub just wants to nap. Will they be able to stop the penguin plans in time for beat Bruce in the big surfing contest? Hilarity ensues. I loved this one. I can't wait for the students to get their hands on this graphic novel series. Ace and Bub, the beaver brothers, are practicing for the surf competition when their board is stolen by a couple of penguins (or puffins). But when they go to get it back, they discover that the penguins are up to no good! Can they thwart the penguins and win the competition against bullying beaver Bruce?Maxwell Eaton III's art is more detailed than that of Jennifer L. and Matthew Holm, although he uses a similar three-color scheme. Eaton is terrific at drawing action, which is good since there's a lot of it in THE FLYING BEAVER BROTHERS AND THE EVIL PENGUIN PLAN. In particular, there is one really cool two-page spread of the brothers swimming through a tunnel in the penguins' lair. (Hilariously, their submarine is a giant refrigerator.)I felt sort of uneasy about the plot. The penguins are motivated by the loss of their home due to global warming. Now, obviously their plan isn't good for the beavers, but I felt weird about them being labeled "evil." This hang up is silly, I know, especially since Eaton does show that not all of the penguins are bad guys.THE FLYING BEAVER BROTHERS AND THE EVIL PENGUIN plan is a cute, funny comic that will appeal to action fans and children who like animals.
