" Laugh out loud funny with fantastic illustrations that complement the story. " said.

" There is always a fun adventure awaiting in the imaginations of these two friends who couldn't be more different. Lots of fun play on words and humor, and the colorful illustrations bring the story to life for the young reader. This is the 3rd book in the Haggis and Tank series. " said.

"I may be writing very similar reviews for a little while. I'm looking for comics which would appeal to the type of students I work with -- mostly boys, mostly on the ASD spectrum, mostly immigrant or African American, mostly picture oriented, kinesthetic learners, mostly emergent, some in third grade reading at kindergarten level. Tank reminds me a little of Scooby Doo. The author's do stand things on their heads by making this big brute of a dog female. I liked the story line, but think my boy's would miss some of the puns and visual details. I may have to follow the series for my own enjoyment." said.

" I LOVE this series!!! =) I could read Haggis & Tank and The Owl Diaries series all day... gotta love Branches by Scholastic! Adorable and the perfect reading level for 2nd-3rd graders! " said.

" I love Haggis and Tank. It is such a fun series and I just love the drawings. Reading them is like getting to have a bit of time back with my dog - who was just like Haggis. :'( <3 " said.

"Haggis and Tank journey to Scotland where they find a castle that seems to be abandoned and hear strange noises on the moor.

Pay careful attention to the illustrations as Haggis and Tank take off on their journey and return. Did they really go to Scotland or was it all just imaginary play? If you've never read Haggis and Tank before let me introduce you to some key elements of their books: 1) they are graphic novel in style, 2) the speakers each have a different color their dialogue is written in, 3) they love homonyms and other word play, 4) text is repeated and vocabulary is simple for beginning readers. And most importantly, 5) they have wild, crazy, hilarious adventures. In this one they suspect a dog of being a werewolf but it could just be that they accidentally stole his bagpipes. Haggis and Tank are guaranteed to get lower graders hooked on reading.

Notes on content: Though Haggis and Tank spook each other a little bit talking about noises and werewolves, there's very good evidence all the noises have logical explanations and that they've just imagined the entire adventure. Also, the "werewolf" doesn't look very scary.
