Reviews

Katfish:

"Drawing from The Wimpy Kid school of adolescent humor, scenes like a drenching water balloon mishap, a food fight at the family dinner table, and a clever parody of "The Fun-ger Games," should appeal to reluctant and enthusiastic readers alike. The line drawings are reminiscent of doodles middle school boys draw when they should be taking notes. Engaging cartoons, quick dialogue in speech squares, and generous white space break up text segments, make this book an inviting, independent read." --Children's Literature

Potterwookie:

"A mashup of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and Chewbacca the Wookiee from Star Wars . . . sure to provoke laughs." --Publishers Weekly

"The second doll-sized literary mashup to come out of a wimpy kid's magic closet adds wizardly spells [and] noxious smells..." --Kirkus Reviews

"The text is hysterical by itself, but acts as the straight man in relation to the one-two punch of the childlike drawings and captions that appear on almost every page. Get multiple copies of this book: it will fly off the shelves." --School Library Journal


Wonkenstein:
"Highly amusing new series starter. . . . Skye gives Rob a self-deprecating charm and highlights the pleasures of books both subtly and effectively." --Booklist

"Quite funny and has a lot of laugh-out-loud moments. . . . The idea of a hybrid Willy Wonka/Frankenstein character is original and hilarious." --School Library Journal

"Filled with spot-on commentary and a wince-inducing supporting cast, middle grade guys won't be able to keep Wonkenstein to themselves. . . . This pitch-perfect offering should appeal to reluctant readers, not to mention the legion Wimpy Kid fans." --Shelf Awareness
