Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Definitely on the Wimpy Kid bandwagon, but less vicious with the satire and therefore all the more welcome." — KIRKUS

"Whether Ariol is joining his father for a trip to the ATM, arguing with a friend about sneakers, accompanying his grandmother to the movies, pursuing his great crush, or emulating his favorite superhero, the author dares to depict the exclusionary, argumentative, self-centered ways children can sometimes behave, without giving up an iota of their charm." — BOOKLIST

"I dare you to put it down once you start, and you’ll agree, Ariol is the new kid in town for reluctant readers." — KID LIT REVIEWS
