Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Korman once again successfully employs his tried-and-true formula: zany situations; a fast pace; likable, well-drawn characters; contemporary dialogue; and lots of humor.” School Library Journal
“Korman has the voices of these middle-school kids down cold…This is a genuinely funny, refreshingly unpretentious novel.” Booklist
