Reviews

Praise for the Gecko & Sticky books:

"A dastardly good read. Written with gleeful wit, rapid-fire pacing and snappy dialogue." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Fearsome is rarely this much fun. Van Draanen has a super imagination, to which she never applies the brakes. Readers who enjoy loony adventures will love this ride." -- Children's Literature

"Consistently entertaining . . . reaching a frenetic level of energy and comedy as the story's tension builds." -- Booklist

"Peppered with exaggerated alliteration and the excitable lizard's Spanish-tinged 'Stickynese, ' the wisecracking narrative bounds from one slapstick scenario to another." -- Publishers Weekly
