"Mr. Penguin's second caper is as silly as the first... Fans will be happy more adventures are in the offing." --Kirkus Reviews
"The book's clever plot twists will surprise and delight young readers... Stylish and intricate drawings...a rollicking caper." --Foreword Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
"Smith delivers a peppy mystery brimming with absurdity and laughs, suspenseful moments, and detailed two-tone illustrations. The idiosyncratic crew has more heart than talent, which results in some genuinely funny moments... Hero and villain tropes give the entire adventure the feel of a well-crafted cartoon episode, and kids will eagerly stay tuned." --Booklist Online
