Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ward’s debut has echoes of Roald Dahl, with the setting and story line falling somewhere between whimsical and pleasantly absurd…played with tongue-in-cheek seriousness, allowing for humor, drama, and a healthy dose of adventure. It’s a genuinely fun and comically ludicrous romp.” Publishers Weekly
“This novel’s pace is frenetic; the action is over-the-top, as are the myriad world records. Think vaudeville on a roller coaster. There’s humor and mayhem, and red herrings and nefarious suspects abound.” School Library Journal
“A rollicking, record-breaking romp, running rife with riotous ribaldry! And featuring even more r’s than this quote!” Robert Paul Weston, award-winning author of Zorgamazoo and The Creature Department
“This inspired tale has an equally as inspired narrator at the helm, and the result is a wonderful listening experience that offers plenty of fun for both young and old. Narrator Crossley delivers a tour de force performance that captures the otherworldly quality of Ward’s novel. Crossley nails the book’s odd characters and lends them each distinctive voices. One of the most fun listening experiences of the year.” Publishers Weekly (starred audio review)
