This is book number 1 in the InvestiGators series.
Mango is so funny! They had to solve three problems at once and it was cool. One of Brash's friends turned evil and Gustavo went missing. One of the scientists had brain surgery. I can't wait for the next one to come out. I like how Brash is always trying to do the right thing, and Mango is trying to be so funny, and it works on me.— Sebastian, Age 7
John Patrick Green's goofy graphic novel series follows the super spy alligator duo the InvestiGators as they travel through the sewers and fight the forces of evil.
MANGO and BRASH are the INVESTIGATORS:
sewer-loving agents of S.U.I.T.* and scourge of supervillains everywhere!
With their Very Exciting Spy Technology and their tried-and-true, toilet-based travel techniques, the InvestiGators are undercover and on the case! And on their first mission together, they have not one but two mysteries to solve! Can Mango and Brash uncover the clues, crack their cases, and corral the crooks—or will the criminals wriggle out of their grasp?

"...has heaping helpings of surreal alligator action and wordplay gags to keep new readers bent on solving the mystery." —The New York Times
"With its rampant good-natured goofiness and its unrelenting fizz and pep, this feels like a sugar rush manifested as a graphic novel. Silly and inventive fast-paced fun." —Kirkus
"In high-intensity colors, straightforward panel artwork by Green (Hippopotamister) offers plenty of slapstick gags to Brash and Mango’s tale. Fast-paced fun for the bad pun and dorky joke crowd." —Publisher's Weekly
"Like the heroes of Dav Pilkey’s “Dog Man” or “Captain Underpants,” the Investigators are bound to resonate with kids." —School Library Journal: XpressReviews
