Booklist - 02/01/2021 Kochalka’s trademark is off-the-wall cartoon humor, and his latest is no exception: Banana Fox (BF), a daffy detective, is paying a visit to his fan club when he stumbles upon a mystery—the club vice president’s pet turtle is missing! With the assistance of a fan who happened to catch BF on his way to the meeting, the bright yellow gumshoe bungles his way through the investigation, which involves imposter club members, hypnosis, a mouth-puckering soft drink, and a malfunctioning machine making BF’s favorite drink (a banana smoothie, of course). Against all odds (and with not-inconsiderable help from his fans), BF solves the case, captures the bad guys, and gains a sidekick in the process. No, it doesn’t make much sense, but the wacky plot and absurd humor echo the imaginative games kids play, and the candy-bright, boldly outlined figures that practically bounce off the page are tailor-made for early-elementary-school comics fans. The implied backstory and concluding team-up practically promise a sequel. Dog Man fans on the younger side will appreciate this. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
