Gr 3–6—As punishment for creating a giant mess in their school, Carol, Jarvis, Mitchell, and Rosario (known to their classmates as the Creeps) are being forced to perform the tasks normally completed by the janitor. When they discover that the frog specimens intended for dissection in their science class are missing, they know that they will be blamed, so they set out to discover who the real culprit might be. After a harrowing trek through the sewer and an encounter with a mad scientist, they are horrified to discover that the missing frog specimens have been reanimated as "frankenfrogs"—menacing monsters intent on attacking them with jolts of electricity. The Creeps use their unique skills and smarts to evade the frankenfrogs and discover who is creating these terrifying creatures—and why. This action-packed graphic novel features a diverse set of characters who are comfortable in their own skins and demonstrate that science can be dangerous and fun. VERDICT A wide range of readers will tear through this well-written and zanily drawn book, and they will be eager to see what wild adventures the four friends will have in the next volume.—Sarah Reid, Broome County Public Library, Binghamton, NY

One of my favorite parts is the investigation of Perry Milburn who was the only sixth grader to ever win first place at the state science fair. The Creeps felt he could be a suspect in the disappearance of the school's frogs. Perry went missing after losing his title two years later and is believed to be maintaining a secret laboratory in the sewers using old discarded school equipment for mysterious experiments.
I really enjoyed the reading. This fictional book was entertaining from beginning to end. The story and characters are well developed. The author does a great job of building suspense, and keeping the reader guessing. I'm giving a rating of five stars and feel parents and kids of all ages will feel the same.
Review by Young Mensan Cyrus S., age 9, Greater New York Mensa
The Creeps are a bunch of misfit kids with varying talents. At the beginning of the book, they've obviously been in trouble for something, so the school is making them fill in for the school custodian. One of their jobs is to bring in the frogs that the Biology lab will be dissecting. When the frogs go missing, The Creeps decide to go looking for the absent amphibians. They find themselves crawling around in the sewers along with super rats, strange creatures, and the Frankenfrogs in the title. There are a lot of suspects, so who is in charge of the newly reconfigured frogs?
My inner 5th grader liked the characters and the kind of gross fun they get into in this graphic novel. I was confused because it seems like there is an earlier adventure that happens before this book. The art is ok, but a little loose on style. It's easy enough to follow what's going on, but some panels seem a bit overly busy. I'd like to read more adventures of this clever band of misfits.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from ABRAMS, Amulet Books, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
