REVIEWED BY REUBEN, 9, WA
Secret Agent Mole, Book 1: Goldfish-Finger by James Foley, Scholastic Australia, ISBN 9781761200151
Reuben received a review copy of this book.
Before I read any book I always read the blurb, and in this book parts of the blurb are just black lines, like it was an agent’s file. When I got this book I thought it would be about a mole, in a tuxedo, with a grappling hook but the hook was a plunger. And I knew it was a graphic novel.
It was what I expected because the mole had a plunger in a grappling gun – and it’s very funny.
My fave character is Max because he is always telling dad jokes, and he’s the funniest character.
I am definitely looking forward to reading Book 2 in this series because I want to see if they manage to beat Dr Nude, the naked mole rat.
This is a great read for anyone who likes comics or animals or moles or insects/bugs and funny books.
I rate this book 5/5 plungers!
