In this epic graphic novel featuring the world’s most heroic super-swine, Batpig’s fame is growing . . . and so are the supervillains he’s facing at school and camp—perfect for fans of The Bad Guys and InvestiGators
Gary Yorkshire and his friends, Carl and Brooklyn, are up against what might be their scariest missions yet: Magical, presidential sharks and summer camp! First there’s the sudden appearance of Sharkraham Lincoln (Half shark! Half 16th President!), who sets off a major test cheating scandal. And then at Camp Moldy Snout (not a great start!), Gary’s hoping for a laid back, chill summer with his friends, but shifting friendship dynamics make that harder than expected . . . and so does the grumpy lake monster. Will Batpig ever catch a break to just relax and enjoy a tasty sandwich?

"Harrell’s newest installment is a full-color comic delight, going whole-hog (pun
intended) on all things silly while maintaining the irresistible charm established by its predecessors. Each tale conveys a gentle message alongside the humor . . . A consistent crowd pleaser for sure." —Kirkus
"This briskly paced middle grade graphic novel is a great pick for those who enjoy extreme silliness and anthropomorphic animals. Quirky character designs, dark linework, and an overabundance of text result in illustrations that burst with as much enthusiasm as Gary has for Pop-Tarts." —School Library Journal
