The Bad Guys in Mission Unpluckable (The Bad Guys Series #2) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
It’s been a while since I read the first instalment of the Bay Guys series. I remember being hesitant because it wasn’t a genre I read anymore (I left behind Children’s and MG books a long time ago) but the book actually seemed quite funny so I decided to give it a try. And to my own surprise, I LOVED THE BOOK. The illustrations were hilarious, and the story was simple and yet it made me smile. It was a fun, different book and so when the lovely publicists and Scholastic India sent me the second, third and fourth episodes in this series, I was VERY excited. I decided to binge all three of them because they really take me about fifteen minutes to finish each of them and write reviews in the middle. Bad Guys 2: Mission Unpluckable maintains the hilarity of text and illustrations that I fell in love with in episode one. In this instalment, the “Good Guys” (these are a bunch of traditional Bad Guys including a Big Bad Wolf, a flesh eating piranha, a huge shark and a cunning snake who FOR ONCE want to be called Heroes and Good Guys) decide to rescue 10,000 chickens who have been cruelly imprisoned with the help of another bad guy, Mr. Tarantula. What ensures is a live piranha in a sandwich, a shark dressed as a mother chicken, a chicken parade and meeting the Big Bad Villain who will come back in book three. There’s not much to say but WOW is this series funny. It’s such a simple concept that makes even me, a nineteen year old teenager laugh because even though it’s targeted at kids, it’s PERFECT for anyone looking for a simple book guaranteed to make you laugh. 4 stars.
