School Library Journal - 01/01/2023 Gr 3 Up—Cilantro the Chameleon will be familiar to fans of the InvestiGators series of graphic novels as a supporting character who wants to be a field agent like her colleagues Mango and Brash. Cilantro is delighted when she is given her first field assignment but confused when it appears that she will be working in a field that contains nothing but some crops and a scarecrow. As Cilantro and her partner, Monocle, explore their surroundings, they learn that everything is not what it seems. Soon they are involved in a weird, twisted, and funny adventure involving a strange farmer, some adorable sheep, mysterious crop circles, alien conspiracy theories, and even that scarecrow. The artwork is bold and bright, with plenty of eye-catching action and humor to keep readers hooked. Readers will root for Cilantro as she steps out of the InvestiGators' shadow and takes center stage in her own adventure. This book is the first volume of a new series that is a spinoff of the popular InvestiGators series, but it is not necessary to have read those books to appreciate or understand this one. However, readers who enjoy this book will probably want to read the first series to explore the rest of this universe. VERDICT For fans of the InvestiGators series, as well as any kids who enjoy funny mystery stories and graphic novels.—Andrea Lipinski - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
