Two Scooby-Snacks this week, but only one is delicious. The first story by Robbie Busch is quite frankly brilliant. Although I solved the mystery, I really didn't think the author would be smart enough to write the conclusion I would have written, but he did.

The gang are in perfect character, and food gets the better of Shag and Scoob. The backdrop of the book is original, imaginative and well-researched with a strong historical core that adds more dimension to the plotting. Joe Staton naturally keeps the characters on-model and displays a variety of expressions for them: facial and muscular. He also seems to be having a ball designing the pirate costumes for the sea-side villagers.[1]
