With the usual comedy of error scenarios including an identical backpack switch, the case of the missing plunger, and another life or death situation, you can’t go wrong with The Odd Squad: King Karl.
Micheal Fry’s cartoons are irresistible. Even if you’re not into reading, the illustrations lure you in so that you’re scanning words without realising it. This is currently the last known book in The Odd Squad series but I’m really, really hoping Michael Fry has another illustrated middle reader series out soon.
