    1. Tank and Fizz is a crossover chapter book aimed at the graphic novel audience. It's a detective story set in a fantasy world with a troll and a goblin as our heroes. As a teacher, it always irritates when teachers are boring and principals are mean, which they are in this story. Our heroes are late and don't do their homework. I know I need to get over myself but it still bugs me. I will be interested to see how it goes over with the grade three and four boys at whom it is aimed. If they love it [...]

    2. This title is nominated for the 2017 Hackmatack award in the fiction category.Tank (a troll) & Fizz (a goblin) are students at Gravelmuck Elementary, which is located deep within Rockfall Mountain. Fizz fancies himself as a detective, and Tank is his tinkering partner. In this installment, they are trying to find the real culprit of the 'Slime Stampede' so that they can clear the name of their beloved school janitor, Mr. Snag. I will admit, they had me fooled until almost the very end. The i [...]

    3. A great mystery, easy to read, wonderful illustrations with a graphic novel feel, this book will appeal to middle grade readers. Slimes have been let loose in the city and their janitor from Gravelmuck Elementary, Mr. Snag has been arrested for the crime. Tank and Fizz know he is innocent and set about to prove it. An entertaining read, great characters and lots of goop and monsters. Highly recommended.

    4. Cute. Almost a noir detective mystery but not quite. I've seen that done in kids' books to great success. I think I would have really loved this book if the author went fully down that road, instead of mostly.I really loved the little comic sections. They were a very successful addition to the story (especially since they were incorporated as part of the story and not reiterated after). Very nice.

    5. Very cute. Fast paced with enough suspense and diversion to keep children guessing "who done it" until the end. ***Do for October Hackmatack program and make it Halloween themed.

    6. A relatively cute little story about a pair of fourth-grade detectives working on solving the case of the framed caretaker and his cleaning slimes. Creative, but I didn't love it. The random comic panels were a nice addition to the story.Short-listed for the 2017 MYRCA.

    7. I didn't "love it", but this is cute and funny and young readers up to around age 10 will enjoy this monster-themed hybrid mystery series.
