The Adventures of Max and Pinky: The Mystery Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

MAX AND PINKY have painted the barn a nice, classic shade of red. But the next morning—its pink! They paint it again, but the very next day its plaid! What is going on?!

Something weird is going on—weird and mysterious! But never fear, adventure-loving readers. The best buds will ask the silliest questions, make the nuttiest alarm system, and get stuck in all sorts of place while searching—whatever it takes to crack the case!

Hmm—doesnt that gopher look a little suspicious?

Review:

"In this latest Adventures of Max and Pinky installment, the Charlie Brown look-alike and his pig best friend work all day to paint their barn, only to discover that someone has repainted it overnight. What's more, the culprit marches to a very different drummer: one morning the barn is pink, the next plaid. With help from a Rube Goldberg — like alarm system (rendered in a very funny blueprint spread), the miscreant is finally revealed as... Pinky himself. Is this the end of a beautiful friendship? Peppering his story with deadpan asides ('This is getting weird,' says the horse) and visual jokes (Pinky subjects a squirrel to an interrogation under a naked light bulb), Eaton (The Best Buds) once again elevates goofiness to fine art. He gets considerable comic mileage out of his simply drawn characters and their dialogue balloon remarks. Even more to his credit, he makes an admirable statement about the nature of friendship without ever turning preachy. Ages 3 — 6." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
