From School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—Fifth-grade Logan loves a good mystery. And when the merry-go-round goes missing at the local amusement park, she and her "arch-nuisance," Gustavo Muchomacho try to break the case and find out why everything on the playground is sinking underground. Newly independent readers will enjoy the graphic novel format and be encouraged to help solve the mystery. The narrator is integral to the story as he interacts with the characters and readers, involving the latter in the story. Children are encouraged to examine the illustrations for clues. With illustrations on every page and bonus back material, including drawing how-to's and puzzles, this early chapter book will appeal to young readers.—Annette Herbert, F. E. Smith Elementary School, Cortland, NY

This amazing junior novel has something for everyone. The illustrations are deeply detailed making the reader want to stop and look at everything over and over again. The whole story is sprinkled with humor and silliness. On some pages is a magnifying glass that invites you to find something hidden within the illustrations. The characters are quirky and ultimately loveable. I especially enjoyed Gustavo's ridiculous mustaches. This author knows how to use quirky creativity to the best advantage. I was never bored and I wanted more when the story was over. He even includes quite a few activity pages at the back of the book to further inspire creativity. I highly recommend this book which is advertized for grades 1-4. I think even though the story line is simple, grades 5 and 6 would enjoy the parts that are more deeply hidden within the pages as well as the quirky humor.
