" Colorful, imaginative, and professional accomplished. This book even includes some science as a feature. I would gladly use this as a choice read with my students, as well as a read aloud for them. I can see young readers enjoying this book, with all its humor. " said.

" Stinky Cecil is in a bad place! The river bank is flooding and destroying houses! Cecil and friends g on a (minor) quest to find out why the river is overflowing it's banks and save the day.This graphic novel was well enjoyed by my daughter and son. They really enjoyed the illustrations and learned a lot about diversity.and how different lifestyles can accommodate each other. " said.

"Stinky Cecil is a frog, not sure what kind of frog since he apparently gives off an odor when he is scared and that is a type of frog I’m unfamiliar with. Anyway, he has a bunch of friends like a chameleon, a fly, a worm and many others.

The artwork is very cutesy and I liked it. I can see little kids enjoying the look of it too. The writing was simple and easy to understand. My only fault is at times spacial and time awareness was thrown out the window. For example, in the book the Jeremy the Worm and Stinky Cecil were sitting on the ground near the water but out of it. It then shows a few frames of them just talking, when all of a sudden they are now up to their necks in water and needing rescue. This isn't something a kid would notice or care about though so it’s a very minor issue although it happens several times in the book so it caught my attention.

Overall, I really liked it.

I got this as a free copy to read and review via #NetGalley. The copy I have has DRM, but I don’t know about the final product. I would assume it will have DRM as the others in the series do. So I have to subtract 1 point for the DRM.

" This fun book is a cross between a beginning reader and a graphic novel. Stinky Cecil is a frog and he has always wanted lakeside living, but when that lakeside becomes a flood, it will be up to this frog to figure out what is going on, and how to make things better. " said.

" *I received a digital copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*The pacing of this book was quick and it suited the story perfectly. And it was FUNNY! All of the characters were great, but Nesbit was my fave. " said.

"A new resident to the pond, a chameleon, is fresh from a pet store and doesn’t know anything, which Cecil finds annoying. More importantly, Cecil’s house gets flooded even though it’s no longer raining. You might be able to guess the reason before you see it.
Gophers being so industrious, it’s no surprise that particular animal has a boat. And a headlamp. And a fanny pack.
Cecil pretends to be smart, but he’d be a goner ten times over without his earthworm friend.
Hmmm, maybe Bigfoot is a giant beaver (not as random as it sounds).
A long sticky tongue IS easier than a fork, especially when you have no fingers.
So anyway, this is a story about cooperation and empathy, or lack of it. Cute and educational, with extra learning at the end.

"'Stinky Cecil in Mudslide Mayhem!' by Paige Braddock is the third volume in the funny graphic novel series for young readers, and that makes me happy.

Springtime is happening at Cecil's Pond and with it comes the rain. This is confusing to Nesbit the chameleon who grew up in a pet store. It's more concerning to Cecil as he sees the pond rising higher and higher. Before long, his house will be underwater. Is the rain causing the pond to rise, or something more sinister? And will Reggie ever get through one of these books without dying?

I liked this volume. The author keeps things fresh by introducing new friends and surprising twists with the old ones. It's apparently very handy to have a friend who is a hamster. The art is bright and cheery and fun, and this one is as good as previous volumes.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
