Praise For…

Praise for Boa Constructor (The Binder of Doom #2):

"The second book in the 'Binder of Doom' series features the mystery and monsters readers loved in the first installment... This mysteriously monster-filled binder of fun is a must-purchase for the early chapter book section of elementary libraries." -- School Library Journal

Praise for Rise of the Balloon Goons (The Notebook of Doom #1):

"Cranking up the horrorlarity with googly eyed cartoon figures and sight gags on nearly every page, Cummings pitches his nervous but resourceful newcomer into a climactic, all-out battle with an entire army of aggressive, air-stealing bendy balloons... An unusually promising series opener for proto-Goosebumps fans." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Can I Be Your Dog?:

A New York Times Bestseller

"A large format and bold, exuberant illustrations are well-matched with Arfy's enthusiastic personality and can-do attitude. The letter format makes this a fine choice for early-elementary students learning to compose letters. Persuasive writing by a persistently pleasing pooch." -- Kirkus Reviews

"No bones about it; this humorous picture book will be a hit with storytime audiences and emergent readers." -- Mindy Hiatt, Salt Lake County Library Services, School Library Journal

Praise for The Eensy Weensy Spider Freaks Out!:

"Clever text full of witty asides." -- School Library Journal
