The Bad Guys – episode one

the bad guys book coverThe Bad Guys – episode 1 by Aaron Blabey

Aaron Blabey has worked his magic once again using bold humour and eye popping mischievous illustrations to bring to life some off the wall characters in The Bad Guys – Episode one.

They sound like the Bad Guys, they look like the Bad Guys . . . and they even smell like the Bad Guys. But Mr Wolf, Mr Piranha, Mr Snake and Mr Shark are about to change all of that! 


Mr Wolf has a daring plan for the Bad Guys first good mission. The gang are going to break 200 dogs out of the Maximum Security City Dog Pound. Will Operation Dog Pound go smoothly? Will the Bad Guys become the Good Guys? And will Mr Snake please spit out Mr Piranha?

Poor wolf, the mastermind of this scheme, has a huge challenge ahead of him because the other three just want to eat everything. But he is determined to twist his own fairytale and change his reputation…

After reading most of the book the grade twos were given the task of predicting the next part of the story. It involved cartoon drawing, speech bubbles and a good imagination. The grade twos were up to the task and here’s a selection of their work.

The final pages of the book were read to twos and they were surprised with the real reaction from Mr Snake, Mr Shark and Mr Piranha. Throughout the book we laughed, sat spellbound and enjoyed the humour. There was applauding at the end and the only regret the grade twos had was that they had to wait for the next episode… It’s their favourite Aaron Blabey book so far 🙂
