Muppets are all the time getting hilariously confused—like Touring Matt, who explored the human world and determined that yellow cabs had been fierce creatures who’d realized to sit down after they heard “Taxi!” The goat detective on the heart of this Québecois graphic novel follows in the identical custom. When a cow disappears from the farm, he decides she’s been kidnapped by aliens. He has proof. She was carrying a shiny silver gown that resembled an area go well with, and the spiral patterns that instantly appeared on the garden might need been crop circles. There are competing theories. Pig, for instance, thinks the tractor might need damaged down and began spinning in circles. However Pig can’t declare to be the “world’s #1 goat detective.” Van Hoof’s advertisements additionally say that he’s the “Winner of Finest Disguise, goat class, Grade 8 Costume celebration.” Essentially the most literal-minded readers could marvel if he was a goat disguised as a goat. However that really suits into the ebook’s goofy, absurdist humorousness. It features a raccoon with a masks tied round his face. None of it makes a lot sense, and, after all, the youngest cows know the answer earlier than the adults. However the loopiness is interesting, and the minimalist, wavery ink drawings are delightfully easy.
