The Bad Guys, Mr. Wolf, Mr. Shark, Mr. Snake, and Mr. Piranha, want to be heroes, and they decide that the way to do it is free the 200 dogs in the city dog pound--but their plan soon goes awry.

The Bad Guys | Aaron Blabey

I probably should have known, but my 4 year old went to the Bad Guys movie with us yesterday since I read the books to her. Several times she loudly exclaimed: “But he‘s the bad guys, “She‘s the ninja”, etc. So basically, she knew the books, but others around us might not have and she was a little spoiler… sorry…. 😅🫠😬

5✨Super cute, easy to read and have fun with graphic novel. It‘s funny and sarcastic. I‘m reading it with my four year old (not that it is tailored to younger audiences), but she is engaged and enjoying it for story time. All about four creatures that typically are labeled the bad guys. The wolf is trying to become good and dragging the others into his plans. Are they just playing good? You will have to read it to find out. 🥰

Rare library sighting of a whole bunch of Bad Guys -
just returned and already on the reserve shelf for the next keen reader.

Have you even done a library shift if you don‘t get asked by at least one optimistic child if there are any bad guys books in?! (At the moment most books in the series have about a 6 person wait list)

Sorry it‘s a little dark. One of the puppies woke me up a 1:30am! Grrrr… but it is giving me the chance to nearly finish my #bookspinbingo for May. The tagged is my most anticipated. I also am trying to finish three books this month so I can have a cleaner bingo card for my birthday month. 🥰 @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 2mo

Is this my typical type of book? Nope.
Would I normally pick this book up? Nope.
Are my student obsessed with this series? Yes!
Did that make me curious? Yes!
I was pleasantly surprised by this book, I was laughing from the first page until the last. I love these character and found them charming. It was a very quick read and I for one will be continuing this series - as soon as my students return the books….😁

I'm always on the look out for books that my kids will love. (Mr six and miss four). It's even better when they both love the same book and this one hit the mark. A cute, quirky tale wrapped up in a graphic novel. It's all about fighting the stereotype of being a bad guy. A fun read for everyone.

Let me know your suggestions for books for kids. I'm particularly interested in books with female protagonist that boys will enjoy.

Tamra Mine loved Bad Guys too! I suggest the Bad Kitty series - funny for both kids & adults. We‘ve chosen to keep them. 5mo
mandarchy Everything by Blabey is funny and kids love his Pug books as well as the Bad Guys series. 5mo
Jeg I volunteer in a school library and the kids love Wolf Girl by Ahn Doh . 5mo

Hey all, sorry for the absence. My parents big house is the land of little to no cell service or internet. I could respond to posts but not make any. So the first thing I want to do is send a big THANK YOU to @AmyG for my #elfswap. I love it all. Josh loved the snickers which is why it‘s not in the picture. 😜. The kids got a hold of the goldfish today (but at least they shared.). We have ripped open the bad guys and started reading. 👇🏻

LibrarianRyan My youngest nephew is still on level one readers (in first grade and it worries me, but his mom and teacher just tell me he‘s lazy and hates to read). But he was entranced with these books, and I love them so hopefully as we are reading them together he will want to borrow them. So I am very grateful for my own set as the public library is closed. I really need to finish the Brown series so It‘s nice the book. Plus👇🏻 1y
LibrarianRyan The mask, the pouch, the notebook that is almost too pretty to write in love it. Love it all. Thank you. 1y
AmyG I had fun shopping for you. Merry Christmas! 1y

CBee @LibrarianRyan my 8 year old son and I are reading The Bad Guys too! He got the same boxed set from Santa. He‘s a great reader but I struggle to find books he‘s interested in, so win win for me 😁♥️ Mr. Piranha is my favorite character btw 😂 1y
LibrarianRyan @CBee personally I‘m on book 6. My nephew book 1 and the oldest nephew has read up to 7 I think. I love me. Shark. 1y
CBee @LibrarianRyan we got to 4 and will read 5 tomorrow. And he asked me to order the rest of the series, so of course I jumped on that 😂 Shark is awesome too. And Legs!! Oh my gosh love them all. 1y

4.5 🌟 What a laugh riot. Typical bad guys lead by Wolf decided to make the Good Guys Club and go about rescuing those in need. However while the Bad Guys are trying their hardest to be Good, others only see bad. This books mission is to save a cat up a tree, and rescue the dogs in the pound. If you have a reluctant reader needing easy chapters, then pick up this series. The books are fully illustrated and funny as heck.

IamIamIam This was what hooked my reluctant 10 year old at the beginning of the summer!!! 😁 3y

Chrissyreadit I was just thinking of you- the box of tea choices you gave me last fall in a swap is always huge hit with my daughter and her friends- they love making tea when they come over (ages 14-18) and it is almost gone! Time for me to order one- I‘m so glad you sent it to me❤️❤️❤️❤️ 3y
