Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A highly distinctive, smart take on the fantasy novel... readers will find a humorous tale of adventure, friendship, and courage. Kirkus Reviews
An entertaining, swashbuckling high adventure with dragons, huge insects, and giant robots. School Library Journal
This fast-paced adventure deals with deep themes... the first in a fantasy adventure series with a unique crew of characters, this will tickle funny bones and leave readers awaiting the next installment. School Library Journal
Funny and fresh. Booklist
“Linda Henning’s spirited narration proves that there’s no such thing as too much adventure…Henning captures the evil matron’s contempt for Anne at school and during the quest… She keeps the tension up and the pacing brisk…The audiobook whizzes by in a blur of exhilarating action—cracking riddles, avoiding dragon fireballs, and evading deadly foes.” AudioFile
