Agent 9: Flood-A-Geddon! by James Burke

From the creator of Bird & Squirrel, comes this hilarious and adventurous new graphic novel series about a feline secret agent who will do whatever it takes to save the world--even if it means destroying a few things along the way.

The Super-Secret Spy Service's mission is to keep the world safe from maniacal villains. And Agent 9 is one of its best operatives. Although Nine always manages to complete the mission, there is occasionally some collateral damage (like the priceless Pigasso painting that was destroyed while foiling an art heist). So Agent 9 is now on probation.

But when bumbling supervillain King Crab manages to overtake S4 headquarters, there is no one else to turn to. Nine--along with a robotic partner named FiN--is all that stands between King Crab and his diabolical plans to melt the polar ice caps and build a massive water park. Can Agent 9 prove to be the right cat for the job by overcoming impulsive behavior and saving the world from a complete flood-a-geddon?
Agent 9 has a difficult time with thinking things through and not blowing everything up. This personality trait is probably why Agent 9 is on probation at the Super Secret Spy Service. This secret spy is forced back into the game when supervillain King Crab has captured all the agent's... except him! He must now race to save the world from King Crab's plan to destroy the world and make it into one huge water park. 

Agent 9: Flood-A-Geddon! was super cute. It read like an episode of a kid's TV show. I really enjoyed that he learns his lesson to think things through and be patient which is something I could learn to do too! Lots of great action and flow to the story. I did think it was strange that this was the first book in what I am assuming is a series. It read like we already got to know Agent 9's backstory. It would be nice to get a story on how he got his start and met/created his friend FiN. 

I think a lot of kids will get excited about Agent 9. It has a lot of action, fun, and even had me chuckling a time or two. I hope this turns into a series because it has some great potential!

Thanks to Penguin and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of Agent 9: Flood-A-Geddon! for an honest review!
