Reviews

"Brosgol packs the illustrations with amusing details that add something new to discover with every reading...An exciting escapade with an unlikely hero and a not-so-secret message about the power of books."--Kirkus

"
The art is effervescent, with bold lines, bright colors, expressive faces, and several well-placed visual gags to reward attentive readers. Sure to delight budding comic fans, crime fighters, and bibliophiles alike."--School Library Journal

"
What if there were a superhero who could give people in trouble the very book they need most? Weinstein (Hyacinth and the Secrets Beneath) spins this winning concept out with cheeky hilarity...Caldecott Honor-winning artist Brosgol (Leave Me Alone!) draws heroes and evildoers with wit."--Publishers Weekly

"
Brosgol's confident line work, vibrant colors, and judicious panel placement allow for the jokes to shine and for the fanciful, energetic plot to move at a thrilling, action-packed pace."--Horn Book Magazine

"The message here: to every reader their book--and what a difference that can make!"--Booklist
