Bad Guys is riotously funny. The first time I read Bad Guys, I seriously couldn’t stop laughing. The “heroes” are animals typically viewed as the villains: Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Mr. Shark, and Mr. Piranha. Sure, they may be accused of eating people – they may even eat each other (I’m looking at you, Snake!) – but it doesn’t mean they’re bad guys. OK, but is it so wrong if the bad guys just wanna be good? Lucky for us, at least three more books are on the way.
