About the Author

Drew Daywalt is an award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling children's author whose books include The Day the Crayons Quit, The Day the Crayons Came Home, and The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors. Drew loves to play Rock, Paper, Scissors, but most of the time he can't decide fast enough which one to pick and ends up making some bizarre shape with his hand that looks like a weird octopus with a hat. He'll claim Weird Octopus with Hat beats everything, but don't let him pull that nonsense on you.
ADAM REX is the author and illustrator of PSSST!, TREE RING CIRCUS, FRANKENSTEIN TAKES THE CAKE, and The New York Times bestseller FRANKENSTEIN MAKES A SANDWICH. He lives in Tucson, Arizona.

Reviews

β˜… "The earnest gravity of the fighters' quests paired with the mundane setting and melodramatic tone are perfectly balanced to produce a brand of purely absurd, sidesplitting humor that kids will gobble up."--Booklist (starred review)
β˜… "Daywalt's text, set in a range of expressive fonts, combines the heightened verbosity of vintage action comics with the swagger of backyard scuffles, and Rex composes wildly dramatic battle scenes against backdrops of thunderstorms, erupting volcanoes, and missile launches. Forget reading aloud--this story demands bombastic, full-volume performances."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
β˜… "While kids will snicker reading this on their own, it's perfect for a guffawing share with younger sibs or buddy read, followed, of course, by a rousing game of Rock Paper Scissors."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
β˜… "Laugh-out-loud funny and outrageous at times, this read-aloud will have listeners jumping out of their seats. This is the sort of story that makes children love to read."--School Library Journal (starred review)
β˜… "Cheeky humor and prideful asides will have listeners in stitches. A closer-to-perfect pairing couldn't be imagined. Everyone wins!"--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
'The title and cover image are enough to get you giggling all on their own. But the epic battles depicted by children's book powerhouses Drew Daywalt and Adam Rex are sure to have us in stitches." Best Books of the Month--Brightly
