Wonder Buddy and Super Earl
Our favourite dog and hedgehog buddies are back in a new book: Buddy and Earl Meet the Neighbours. Published by Groundwood Books, author Maureen Fergus and illustrator Carey Sookocheff have another winner on their hands in this wonderful story about friendship and good citizenry.
Wonder Buddy and Super Earl are out for the day in the backyard protecting “the good citizens of this fair city” from the “Evil Doctor Stinker”. They discover his lair (through the fence to the neighbours yard) and quickly pursue the fiend. On the other side of the fence they meet the neighbours Mister and Snowflake and compare super powers. When Snowflake meets with peril, Super Earl comes to the rescue.
Capitalizing on the popularity of superheroes, Maureen Fergus has written a funny story of adventure and mayhem great for all ages. With a lovely message about helping your neighbours and friends out of sticky situations, all readers will enjoy Buddy and Earl’s new adventure. Once again the art by Carey Sookocheff is very inviting. The art in this Buddy and Earl story is once again simple and visually appealing using an uncomplicated colour pallette and comic book detailing. It’s a hit in our house, it’s sure to be a hit in yours.
