To be honest, I'm not usually a fan of chapter books that have lots of illustrations and very little character development. I had low expectations for The Bad Guys, but I'm happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised — impressed even — when I found this book to be so thoroughly entertaining. It's so full of humor that I was smiling or laughing at every single page. With 144 pages that are chock full of illustrations, it is a quick read. It could even be read in an afternoon. This makes it an EXCELLENT option for reluctant readers. I would also recommend it to anyone interested in a fun, lighthearted story, no matter what their typical genre preference is. It's a wonderfully entertaining story that I think anyone would enjoy. And the best part is, if you enjoy this one, there are 11 more books in the series just waiting to be read!

An excellent series full of silliness and humour. Perfect for kids transitioning from picture books to chapter books.
This is one of my all-time favorite series. It's a great choice for reluctant readers that enjoy humor and silliness.
hi! I'm new to the site. is there any way I can "take this out digitally" as an ebook...? thank you in advance.
Mr. Wolf (of Big Bad fame) is tired of being known for being... well, bad. He brings in a pack of his friends (a piranha, snake, and shark) to join him on a new venture: creating “The Good Guys Club”! Each member is introduced with their rap sheet of crimes and is eventually convinced to join the Wolf on a mission. Though rescuing a cat from a tree doesn’t exactly go smoothly, the group moves on to Wolf’s grand plan: saving 200 dogs from the pound! Energetic, playful writing and illustrations make this book really fun to read aloud. Reluctant readers and fans of Captain Underpants will love this creative, wacky series. Great for readers ages 6-10.
Bad guys trying to be good guys trying to be bad guys. Are you confused. Read it and laugh.
This was a terrific book. Why don't you do yourself a favor and read this book? What a treat! I give this book 5 stars. (My brother does too) (Ines)
Mr. Wolf enlists the help of three friends (Mr. Snake, Mr. Piranha, and Mr. Shark) to show the world that they are really just misunderstood good guys. What could go wrong when they set out to do good deeds, like rescuing a cat stuck in a tree? I laughed out loud at their silly schemes and humorous dialog. It is part book, part graphic novel. The illustrations and typography (also by the author) are fun and engaging. I would suggest “The Bad Guys” series to fans of “The Yeti Files” or “Chicken Squad.”
A great read about Wolf, Piranha, Snake and Shark who are on a mission to change how they are perceived by others. Can they do it?
I loved this sparse-text graphic novel. The characters are hilarious, the story is silly, and there's enough action to keep a reader hooked. Give to fans of Captain Underpants and reluctant readers.
A quick-reading graphic novel that has the characters talking directly to readers as much as to each other. Mr. Wolf--as in "Big, Bad"--tries to convince us he's been misunderstood and is really a good guy, then he tries to convince three other colleagues that they are, too. So they set off in search of opportunities to perform good deeds and become Good Guys, despite their scary appearances (and instinctual methods). There is plenty of slapstick humor, ongoing silly dialogue, and just enough doubt about their sincerity to provide suspense. It makes for a highly appealing package that is sure to entertain young readers.
