Platypus Police Squad The Frog Who Croaked, by Jarrett J. Krosoczka is a fun and action packed book. When you read it, you feel like you were actually there when it happened. The book takes place in Kalamazoo City. It’s about a platypus named Zengo who wants to join a police force and does. Once he joins the force, he is paired up with an experienced officer. The experienced officer is another platypus named O’malley. At first they don’t get along very well, but this changes, when all of a sudden, they mysteriously get called to the docks. When they get there, the meet a fisherman named Pete who tells them there is an illegal fish trade going on and a teacher has disappeared. Pete says that someone is selling really cheap and unhealthy fish. Zengo and his partner, O’malley, go out looking for suspects. Their search takes them all around the city.
One of the things about this book is that all of the characters are animals, and it made the book more interesting. Another thing is that it starts out pretty slowly, but towards the middle, you just can’t put it down because it hooks you with the mystery. The author did a great job not spoiling the ending, and when I got to the end, I found it very surprising. This book is one that nine and ten year olds would really enjoy. Overall, it was a very good book.
