Reviews

"Totally original and wholly brilliant. Adam Rex must be stopped." -- Eoin Colfer, bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series

"With an off-the-wall sensibility that fans of the author's True Meaning of Smekday will recognize with delight, Rex brings together unconventional allies to be hunted by agents of the huge Goodco Cereal Company." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Rex takes his magically delicious premise seriously, finding the thin line between absurdity and comedy, while giving this story more gravitas and depth than might be expected." -- Publishers Weekly

"The story is filled with wildly imaginative elements and clever wisecracks, but the humor is couched within a rich, complex plot that's filled with engaging characters and concepts. Readers who enjoy fantasies that are equal parts hilarious and exciting will eagerly await the next two in the series." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"An expansive cast of colorful characters (including Merle Lynn, an accountant) keep the surprises coming. Reader interest and suspension of disbelief never flag in this humorous, consistently entertaining, well-spun yarn." -- The Horn Book

"Rex supports his centrifugal imagination with tight storytelling, effervescent characterization, and strong imagery and metaphor. . . . will leave readers anxious for the sequel." -- ALA Booklist

"The divinely demented Adam Rex strikes again! Cold Cereal is exciting, strange, and deliciously different. His deft mixing of myth with modernity is flat-out fabulous." -- Bruce Coville, author of My Teacher Is an Alien

"Warning--this book contains the following ingredients in dangerously high quantities: wild fantasy, dynamic action, great satire and silly jokes. It's as addictive as one of Goodco's sinister breakfast products--and a whole lot better for you. I loved it. Second helpings, please!" -- Jonathan Stroud, bestselling author of the Bartimaeus Trilogy
