"This would be a great addition to an environment collection and will entice the reluctant reader with the graphic novel format."
NMRLS Youth Services Book Review - October 1, 2010
"Educational without being didactic; the explanations are organic to the plot and flow seamlessly in the narrative. The bright, cartoon-like colors will catch kids' eyes and the mystery will propel them through before they've realized they're learning something."
Puget Sound Council - September 1, 2010
"Intermixed with the basic plot are subtle educational tidbits about food production including, the value of organic and local vegetables, the process food takes to get to our table, the repercussions of using pesticides and information about genetically modified foods...The delivery is clear and age appropriate...A book worth checking out."

"An interesting mix of fast paced adventure story and non-fiction information...presented in a very readable and accessible way...A good purchase for elementary and middle schools."
Publishers Weekly - May 1, 2010
"[O'Donnell] successfully returns to mystery graphic novels for kids...It's clear that O'Donnell has a knack for not only entertaining with an unsolved case but teaching important facts."
CM Magazine - April 30, 2010
"O'Donnell has once again used his unique teaching tool to inform a generation of children about a current and growing social concern...All this information, combined with the superb art work of Mike Deas, is sure to grab and keep the attention of today's youth...Accessible, interesting, and relevant. This graphic novel is highly recommended."
