Reluctant readers will enjoy this extremely funny, heavily illustrated book about hyenas masquerading as humans. Since they are hyenas, there is a lot of inappropriate laughing, tails that pop out of disguises, and a fair amount of bottom-sniffing. Perfectly quirky humor for fans of Captain Underpants, Roald Dahl, or Lemony Snicket.
