Agent 9: Flood-a-geddon!: the hilarious and action-packed graphic novel
About this deal
Agent 9 is impulsive and rather disaster-prone, with a tendency to blow things up and forget vital pieces of equipment.
On probation, Agent 9 is promised one last crime-busting chance by big boss O (a very literal BIG boss - O is a huge orangatan, to be exact). It's interesting that Agent 9 isn't assigned a gender, so keeping the appeal open to boys and girls. I was worried this may be a little too young for our middle schoolers just based on the cover, but I think they will really enjoy it along with the elementary kids.She won’t be alone as her robotic assistant FiN also gets some time to shine even despite the fact he only uses one word to talk. When Agent 9’s boss, 0, and sidekick, Fin, are captured by King Crab, it’s up to Agent 9 to save them and save the day.
Polly Crosby tells ReadingZone about her novel, This Tale is Forbidden (Scholastic), a fractured fairy tale set in a dystopian world. His use of colour, panel size and placement give power to parts of the story, amplifying the action which is carefully punctuated with words and leading to the fast-paced nature of this story. Before a mission is found, however, Agent 9 finds themself and robotic fish eye sidekick FIN (the long-suffering voice of reason and probable real brains of the duo) remaining the only Agent that now stands between the super evil King Crab and his dastardly plan to flood the world to build a worldwide water park. This secret spy is forced back into the game when supervillain King Crab has captured all the agent's.Agent 9 faces a race against time to reach Captain Crab’s (not so) secret island lair to try and stop this evil plan and save the world from ‘flood-a-geddon!
