"I've been waiting for a series to come along that could knock Wimpy Kid off its pedestal as the most popular series in my library. Well, this may be it: the Aldo Zelnick Comic Novels. Save room on your shelves for 26 volumes!" -- Donna Dannenmiller, elementary librarian

"This terrific series will be enjoyed by all readers and constantly in demand. Highly recommended."
-- South Sound Book Review Council

"As a teacher of 20 years, I have never come across a series that has engaged readers so intensely, so quickly. The boys in my reading group devoured the books and were sad when they finished the most recent one."
-- Cheryl Weber, elementary teacher

"We recommend A is for Aldo! Hilarious stories, goofy drawings, and even sneaky new vocabulary words. If you are an admirer of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, you'll adore Aldo Zelnick."
-- Oak Park Public Library

"The Aldo Zelnick books are consistently better written and better illustrated than any Wimpy Kid book. Aldo is a lovable character with realistic child-like thoughts. His stories have lots of heart and learning opportunities, and they're lots of fun to read."
-- Katie Fitzgerald, children's librarian

"These books made my son enjoy reading, and I can't thank you enough!"
-- Melanie Ault

"This is a fun series that my students adore."
-- Katherine Sokolowski, 5th grade teacher

"Every library that serves Wimpy Kid fans (which, honestly, is every library, period) should have the Aldo Zelnick series on its shelves."
-- Katie Ahearn, children's librarian, Washington, D.C.

"Aldo is an endearing narrator. His deadpan sense of humor is enjoyable even for adults. Each book is a fast-paced, light read, perfect for the kid looking for a transition from comics to chapter books."
-- Sarah, children's buyer, Left Bank Books

"You will laugh out loud--I guarantee it. The books are THAT funny."
-- Becky Bilby, In the Pages reviews

"Amazing. Totally blows Wimpy Kid out of the water."
-- a Barnes & Noble reviewer

"This book will appeal to kids not yet ready for the middle-school life portrayed in Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid series but who have aged out of the irreverent potty humor of Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants series.
-- Kathleen Meulen Ellison in School Library Journal

"When I am reading an Aldo Zelnick book in RTI, I don't want to go back to my classroom. Somehow I want to keep reading...and I don't like reading." -- an elementary student
