Praise for Wedgie & Gizmo "A delightfully fun read that will keep you in stiches!"--Dan Santat, Caldecott Medal Winner for THE ADVENTURES OF BEEKLE: THE UNIMAGINARY FRIEND
"Great for one-on-one sharing or independent reading. A solid purchase for libraries looking for early chapter books."--School Library Journal
"Amusing and imaginative."--Kirkus Reviews
"A delightfully comedic look at the chaos that is family life... There's plenty of warmth and humor, with a bit of sardonic bite from Gizmo, and readers of Jamieson's The Great Pet Escape will find much to love here."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Readers will love Wedgie and Gizmo's distinct and hilarious voices and Barbara Fisinger's adorable and eye-catching illustrations!"--John Schumacher (aka Mr. Schu), Ambassador for School Libraries
"Gizmo and Wedgie alternate narrating duties in this hilarious chapter book, and their over-the-top personalities make the story clip along."--Booklist
