The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Crazy Critter Race (Book 6)

Find a store

The race is on for Ace and Bub in their sixth adventure in this popular young graphic novel series, which Kirkus called “funny from the first panel!”

Ace and Bub are tangled up in an island-hopping competition, and there's more than just the grand prize--a houseboat!--at stake. The salesman and sponsor is Crazy Critter (and he really is crazy), and it soon becomes clear that he has more than publicity for his houseboat dealership to gain from the race. Before long, the brothers are wrapped up in the plot: a fast-growing vine is entangling all the nearby islands! Which of their fellow competitors can help them put a stop to this outbreak--and which ones are behind it?

"Whether readers are the 'Preston' or 'Andy' in their own friendships, they'll find this duo's interactions irresistible." -Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW 

In this sequel to OKAY ANDY we once again find our little coyote pup, Preston, adoring his not-so-adorable alligator pal, Andy, in three chapters. In chapter 1, Preston ascends the highest peaks of flattery and renames himself Andy. Things get confusing. In chapter 2, Preston starts an impromptu percussion band as Andy attempts to nap. Things get loud. And in chapter 3, Preston plays twenty questions and gets his reptilian friend’s opinion on the cranial capacity of one-hundred rabbits. Things get strange.

Confusing, loud, and strange. Sounds like my next review.

So grab a copy and get your fill of stethoscope-bearing turkeys, cha-cha-ing seagulls, and large green alligators that are adamantly NOT helpful nor soft!

"Wacky and charming." -School Library Journal

It’s winter break, and Ace and Bub are hitting the slopes! But their ski session is interrupted by a sudden influx of . . . swimming pools? A band of enterprising baboons has graced Beaver Island with the Easy Breeze, a giant hair dryer designed to melt all the snow off the mountains and channel it into swimming pools. The residents of Beaver Island are over the moon about their new relaxation stations, but Ace and Bub don’t trust these monkeys any farther than they can ski down a hill with no snow. Can they uncover the baboons’ real plan before their neighbors become too attached to the summery island makeover?
 
With environmental themes, laugh-out-loud humor, and fast-paced adventures, the Flying Beaver Brothers are sure to fly off bookshelves!

"Whether readers are the 'Preston' or 'Andy' in their own friendships, they'll find this duo's interactions irresistible." -Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW 

2014 CYBILS Award for Easy Readers

Is Andy okay? Preston always thinks Andy is super-okay! Does Andy think Preston is okay? Maybe... but he will NEVER admit it!

One thing for sure, they spend a lot of time falling over cliffs, not catching rabbits, and trying to decide the difference between an owl and a bear. And that’s just in the first book! Okay, Andy is this series’ debut title in Blue Apple’s JUMP-INTO-CHAPTERS! series. For kids who want to tackle a “big kid” book, but aren’t quite ready for text-heavy reading, JUMP-INTO-CHAPTERS! offers a perfect bridge—and a pair of buddies they’ll want to follow. 

What’s next? In Fall 2014, the pals star in Andy, Also—in which Preston sort of pays homage to Andy.

They soon discover that Captain Jojo and his scurvy crew of mud-making moles have hatched a nearsighted plot to steal dirt from Beaver Island in order to make their own island home even bigger!
