"Do you want to laugh? Or get yanked into a nonstop, page-turning adventure? Or be inspired to write your own story? Or maybe you want to eat a double stack cheeseburger with onion rings? Okay, if it’s any of the first three, then this is the bookfor you. If it’s the last one—sorry, we can’t help you there."
-- Adam Gidwitz, best-selling author of A Tale Dark and Grimm and the Newbery Honor-winning The Inquisitor’s Tale
"So zany and imaginative, it's no surprise an actual kid inspired it. You'll laugh a lot—and learn a lot, too."
