Product Details


The clever plot is anchored by Bunny and Clyde’s Hollywood gangster-speak, tongue-in-cheek dialogue, and groan-worthy puns, all of which will charm young readers. . . . Being bad is work. Delightful.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Bunny and Clyde’s schemes—facilitated by bouncy, fast-paced plotting from McDonald (the Judy Moody series) and boldly expressive art from Nash (I’m Afraid Your Teddy Is in the Principal’s Office)—prove amusing, and the characters’ independence, alongside their sassy banter, will appeal to young readers.
—Publishers Weekly

Do-gooders Bunny and Clyde are fed up with playing nice, so the rabbit and the chipmunk set their sights on being as bad as possible. . . . The stakes are low, the action breezy, and the gentle humor reminiscent of Frog and Toad, making this an excellent next read for lovers of those books. . . . Chapters are nicely episodic for budding readers, and the friends’ shenanigans are perfectly paced within each section, providing quick but useful breathers for those kids just building up to chapter books.
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

McDonald, of Judy Moody and Stink fame, is clearly having fun in her new chapter-book series, which is packed with humorous situations, puns, and old-timey gangster slang. The black-and white illustrations lean into the overarching joke that the friends are “goodniks” in spite of themselves. A criminally charming new series for fans of Kara LaReau’s Infamous Ratsos books.

If you have the main characters stealing toilet paper on the cover of a book, you’re going to get some kids intrigued. When the book is written by Judy Moody creator Megan McDonald, you’re going to get this school librarian intrigued. The fact that it is heavily illustrated by Scott Nash is icing on the cake.
