Critic Reviews

Fast, fabulous, and fantastically funny, the InvestiGators books are instant classics! -- Jamie Smart, creator of Bunny vs Monkey
Has heaping helpings of surreal alligator action and wordplay gags to keep new readers bent on solving the mystery. The New York Times
A hilarious ride with great wordplay, bright illustrations and plenty of twists and turns – lots to keep young readers engaged. Keen illustrators will also enjoy Green’s bonus drawing tips to create their own InvestiGators. -- Sarah Mallon The Scotsman
In high-intensity colors, straightforward panel artwork by Green (Hippopot­a­mister) offers plenty of slapstick gags to Brash and Mango’s tale. Fast-paced fun for the bad pun and dorky joke crowd. Publisher's Weekly
Like the heroes of Dav Pilkey’s Dog Man or Captain Underpants, the Investigators are bound to resonate with kids. School Library Journal: XpressReviews
With its rampant good-natured goofiness and its unrelenting fizz and pep, this feels like a sugar rush manifested as a graphic novel. Silly and inventive fast-paced fun. Kirkus
If your young reader is looking for something to fill a Dogman-shaped hole in their personal libraries, let alligator investigators Mango and Brash step in. With a detailed comic-strip format, lots of toilet humour and zany plot lines, you will be pestered for the sequel before it's published. -- Sara Keating Sunday Business Post (Ireland)
Brimming over with glorious puns, lashings of toilet humour, and plenty of references to pop culture, Green’s high-energy, snap, crackle and pop story will have youngsters snorting and sniggering from the first appearance of the alligator investigators right through to their final frenetic flourish. Simply bursting with youthful energy, crazy comedy, vibrant artwork and breathtaking creativity, InvestiGators is a visual and verbal delight… and guaranteed to please even the most reluctant reader! -- Pam Norfolk Lancashire Post
This book is going to be big, really big, any class that has it is going to struggle to keep it on the shelves. It’s perfect for year 3/4 especially those who may be less confident or enthused when it comes to reading. This book will appeal to all but you can easily see how it could be a stepping stone for those who struggle to engage with reading and it may just help them light their reading fire. 5/5, 10/10, must buy, whatever your rating system is this book smashes it and is something that should be in all KS2 classrooms as far as I’m concerned. -- Richard Ruddick
My six year old nephew would not put this book down. As in we had to pry it from his fingers at one point to take a break. According to him, “you don’t need any sort of learning apps to read, you just need to find the right book.” This book has helped him get excited about reading and he definitely has the reading bug now. We can’t wait for more books in this series to be released! Toppsta review
pun-heavy whodunnit graphic novel which is just as clearly laid out, colourful and silly as Dav Pilkey’s phenomenally successful series. Mango and Brash are an excellent detective duo that readers will definitely want to see more from… BookTrust
Simply bursting with youthful energy, crazy comedy, vibrant artwork and breathtaking creativity, InvestiGators is a visual and verbal delight… and guaranteed to please even the most reluctant reader! Lancashire Evening Post

Absolutely hilarious and fantastic book. Investigators has become a good new series to look out for and we simply can't wait to continue the story. My son and I went through the whole book in one sitting. Mango was my son’s favourite as he was extremely funny. The book has great design and vibrant colourful pictures. The puns and jokes are spot on Toppsta review

It’s like a cartoon you can read, the illustrations are so good it’s like you’re watching them and not reading them at all. -- Yusuf, aged 10 The Reading Agency
My son loves this graphic novel and finds it hilarious -- Mini Travellers Blog
Blooming marvellous. Love how filled with puns and word play these are. This series is just such fun and they are so popular in school! When popular art starts going missing, it’s up to the Investigators to get it back! This made me cackle at times! Can’t wait for more! -- Steph Elliott Blog A Little But a Lot
