"What could be more treacherous than the realm of Briandalor, with its barbarians, wizards, warriors, assassins, and thieves? How about a modern middle school? You can't help falling in love with this hilarious upside-down take on Dungeons and Dragons. I read; I cheered; I laughed out loud." -- Gordon Korman

“Played out with impeccable, hilarious logic, the plot leads up an adventuresome learning curve to a brisk battle in a local mall with animated mannequins, a really high-stakes duel involving the evocatively named phone game Oink Pop, and a final realization that Bríandalör's dangers, lore, glittering treasures, and opportunities for daring exploits seem a bit pale next to those of . . . exotic suburbia.” -- Booklist (starred review)

Praise for Hamstersaurus Rex: "A funny, lighthearted option for fans of Tom Angleberger." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for Hamstersaurus Rex: "In the annals of class-petdom, few indeed could ever match aptly named Hamstersaurus Rex for loyalty and ferocity." -- ALA Booklist

Praise for Hamstersaurus Rex: "O'Donnell kicks off a new series with an illustrated origin story sure to please fans of Betty G. Birney's Humphrey and Lincoln Peirce's Big Nate." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Hamstersaurux Rex vs. Squirrel Kong: "O'Donnell writes joyful silliness for readers with a budding adolescent sense of humor, and Squirrel Kong's absurdism may resonate even with grumpy, neurotic adults. A pure blast of fun for readers who want something amusing and fast-paced." -- School Library Journal
