    Sharks, wolves, piranhas, and snakes are usually depicted in stories as the "Bad Guys". But what if they didn't want to be? In this book, Mr. Shark, Mr. Wolf, Mr. Piranha, and Mr. Snake (a shark, wolf, piranha and snake, respectively) set out to clear their names by doing good things. Will this crew succeed and attain "good guy" status or will their plan backfire, dooming them to being "bad guys" forever? Read to find out in this richly illustrated, funny book meant for younger audiences but thoroughly enjoyed by all ages.

        This graphic novel is about a few animals who have been categorized as bad guys - Mr. Wolf, Mr. Piranha, Mr. Snake and Mr. Shark. But now they have decided they want to be good guys. All they have to do is figure out how. Their first mission: free the 10,000 chickens from their cramped cages. But they're going to need help to do it. I didn't really like this book, I think it is just meant for really young kids. But for older kids who like graphic novels it might be more enjoyable than it was to me. I rate this book 2 out of 5 stars.

          I literally laughed out loud the entire time during this book. I really like graphic novels because it helps me see the story more than just words. This one is AWESOME. The art style is really cool, and the story is so funny.

            This is the first book in a series. It's pretty easy to read, so I think that kids going into chapter books can read this. This book is overall really funny. I personally like Mr. Snake's farts. It's about a wolf that no longer wants to be a bad guy, so he makes a "good guy gang." Then the story goes from there. Even though i'm in middle school, I still enjoyed reading this.

              Mr. Wolf is a bad guy...trying to be a good guy. And he brings along his (bad) friends, Mr. Shake, Mr. Piranha & Mr. Shark to come along and create a "The Good Guys Club". First they "try" to save a kitten in a tree (classic) then try to save 200 dogs from the pound. I think this would be a great book for 8-10 year olds. The plot is ok it was pretty basic, but this is my opinion. Thanks for reading -Ajg15's reviews
