Editorial Reviews

Praise for Crimebiters! #1: My Dog is Better Than Your Dog " Lively dialogue and brief chapters punctuated by Jimmy's wry observations keep the story moving swiftly, while Stower's cartoons underline the comedic wisdom.and the madcap action that unfolds." -Publishers Weekly Praise for Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading *" Hilarious... This debut is filled with passages that beg to be shared... With its subversive humor and contemporary details drawn straight from kids' worlds, this clever title should attract a wide following." -Booklist, starred review" This is a fun, fast-moving look at middle-school life through the eyes of a kid who would rather clean his room than pick up a book. Reluctant readers will be pleased." -School Library Journal
