STINKY CECIL IN MUDSLIDE MAYHEM, by Paige Braddock, Andrews McMeel Publishing


It’s springtime at Cecil’s Pond and everything is coming alive: the flowers, grasses, insects, and butterflies. The marsh around the pond is all in bloom. Poor Nesbit (the chameleon) is overwhelmed by it all. He sees all the change as unsettling chaos!

Nesbit grew up in a pet store before moving to the pond. He has no idea what it’s like to live in the wild or where he fits in the chain of life. Cecil and his pond pals will have to help Nesbit along on his journey of self-discovery.


I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Can we say… adorable? I absolutely loved this book.  The humor was tongue in cheek endearing and the artwork was so sweet! I loved all the characters, and Cecil was the perfect Protagonist.  My daughter reads this book over and over and I can hear her laughing in her room.  Great entertainment and a perfect motivator for kids who struggle with reading.  This graphic novel “delivers clever, accessible lessons for kids using bold, colourful illustrations that come to life on the page.”

I gave this novel:
