From the author of the “Pearls Before Swine” comic strip and New York Times bestselling Timmy Failure series comes a laugh-out-loud, heartwarming, full-color graphic novel series about a quirky town—just right for young readers starting to read longer books!

Wendy the Wanderer has lived in Trubble Town her whole life but never had the chance to go exploring. For this reason, she thinks she was definitely misnamed. Her dad likes to know where she is to make sure she’s safe, so she’s never been anywhere on her own. Then, her dad leaves on a trip and the babysitter doesn’t reinforce all the usual rules. Or any of the usual rules! Suddenly, Wendy is free to do what she wants, and what she wants is to live up to her name…and find Trubble.

Turns out, there’s lots going on in Trubble Town. As she encounters endearingly goofy animals and hilariously hapless townsfolk, Wendy’s very first adventure takes more twists and turns than she could have ever expected. She learns some really valuable life lessons and even teaches a few of her own.

 

MY REVIEW
Squirrel Do Bad is the first book in the new Trubble Town series. It's a fun little graphic novel done by the author behind the Pearls Before Swine comic strip, so if you're a fan of that, you'll love this book.
The story follows Wendy, a little girl in Trubble Town. Wendy's dad is super overprotective, and she's never had the chance to explore her town. But when her dad goes on a trip and hires a babysitter who is useless, Wendy decides now's her chance to go out and see what she's been missing. Unfortunately for Wendy, that means getting herself into a whole heap of trouble, thanks to one pesky little squirrel.
I found this graphic novel to be silly, a bit ridiculous at times, and overall just good fun. The illustrations are bright and colorful, and they're done in the style of Pearls Before Swine, so it also feels both nostalgic and modern. Wendy is amusing, but it's the other people in town who really bring the book to life. And poor Squirrel just wanted a hot chocolate (aka a Mooshy). 
Middle-grade readers will enjoy this book, laughing out loud as they go on a wild adventure along with Wendy through Trubble Town. 
4 stars!
