"Special Agent Anonymoose charms as the charismatic, clueless star in this playfully suspenseful spy story... Mixing a hint of danger with a lot of humor, O’Hara and Bradley create a winsome forest-animal spin on traditional espionage tales." --Publishers Weekly on Agent Moose
"Bright colors and clear character drawings make this graphic novel as easy to follow as it is fun to read.... This animal investigator fits right in with Tom Angleberger’s “Inspector Flytrap” and Doreen Cronin’s “Chicken Squad” series." --School Library Journal:Xpress Reviews on Agent Moose
