Kids Read Picks, vol. 22

Don’t be surprised if you can’t find some of these books at the library or in stores (yet): kids who attend Kids Read Book Club virtually on Tuesdays at 4:00 have access to books before they are officially published. They also write reviews of books they recommend to younger siblings and friends so recommendations of great books for kids of all ages are found here.

InvesiGators Take the Plunge by John Patrick Green.

This graphic novel is the second in the series. Mango and Brash try to solve two crimes while staying out of sight of their boss because they got fired and are supposed to be janitors. It has a lot of puns and surprising plot twists and would be a good book for people who like funny graphic novels.
