Reviews

*"The invention never flags."--Booklist, starred review.
"Metafiction at its most weirdly satisfying...Extremely funny, it's for adults, who will get at least half the references, and for children, who will get the other half. Cyrus's illustrations are integral and pretty darn amusing too."--Kirkus Reviews
"Anderson never takes his tongue out of his cheek in this uproariously entertaining combination of Indiana Jones, the Stratemeyer syndicate, and MADtv...Sly jabs at the overused tropes and cliched conventions of the action genre will surely be appreciated by the more sophisticated reader, and there is enoguh slapstick humor here to go around for those with less ironic tastes; any youngster looking for a laugh and an adventure will not be disappointed."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
