The Flying Beaver Brothers are back, and this time they're hot on the trail of another eco-villain: Fish Stix Environmental Manufacturing. When Fish Stix sets up shop, most of the islanders are thrilled. After all, Fish Stix are the most popular, best-selling sticks around AND they're good for the environment! But this eco-friendly facade is just a cover for a nefarious plot involving dirty money, fish who walk on dry land, and a great big smoking volcano. It's up to the dauntless beaver brothers to set things right--and they better do it fast or the island's forests are history! Now if only Bub can stop napping and they can all make enough pancakes to save the day. . . .

This second installment to Max Eaton's new graphic series ups the ante in terms of both action and humor. The Flying Beaver Brothers are poised to take off as beloved comicbook heros.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Over the course of these two stories, two beaver brothers save their home island from other animals out to exploit the island's beavers'natural resources for profit. Ace, the active beaver brother, and Bub, the lazy one, are first troubled by a group of penguins attempting to use a giant underwater refrigerator to freeze their island into a cold-weather resort. At the same time, Ace's attempt to win the island's surfing competition is threatened by beaver bully Bruce's plan to sabotage Ace's surfing. As readers might guess, the plan ends up backfiring and helps Ace stop the penguins and win the surfing contest. In "Fishy Business," Ace, Bub, and formerly evil penguins Bob and Bob must stop a group of fish from tearing down the island's forest to make cheap toy fishsticks, burning the rest of the trees and polluting the island in the process. When Bruce becomes a spokesman for the fish's sticks, they all must be awakened to the extent of the fish's destruction. Eaton's simple cartoonish style, big action scenes, and dry sense of humor keep the story moving, and younger readers will enjoy the camaraderie and sharp characterization. Ages 6-9. (Jan.)
