Praise for The Odious Ogre
"Kids [are] sure to enjoy Juster's rich wordplay and happily ridiculous story and Feiffer's wonderfully scratchy and energetic watercolors of the greedy ogre, the terrified townspeople and the utterly pleasant and otherwise unremarkable heroine. A delicious morsel with which to whet the palate for other works by these giants of children's literature." - Kirkus

Praise for Accomplice

"Corrigan delivers an addictive cautionary tale in this twisted unraveling of mean girl machinations. This commentary on the fictions underlying celebrity culture and the cruelty and bravery of this memorable heroine are both haunting and provocative." - Publishers Weekly, starred review

Praise for Framed
"Korman's third caper starring Griffin & Co. features some conclusion-jumping that would do Inspector Clouseau proud as well as plenty of improbable adult reactions...but it's just as goofball-funny and addictive as the previous two." - Kirkus
