From the Publisher
Praise for THE EENSY WEENSY SPIDER FREAKS OUT!
"Clever text full of witty asides." -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

Praise for MORE BEARS!

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
If there was a super-secret group of monster hunters would you join? Alexander thinks that monster comics, which by the way used to scare him, are not even worth his time. He has felt this way ever since he started fighting real monsters. Yes, that’s right. Alexander is a member of the Super-Secret Monster Patrol or S.S.M.P. The headquarters is an old caboose that has everything monster hunters would need, like papers, boxes, ping pong balls and even a cheese grater. Alexander is discovering some strange things that are not in his monster notebook. For one, his shadow and the shadows of his friends and community are rising up and playing tricks. And on top of all that his good friend and monster hunter Nikki has fangs and may just be a monster herself. What does it all mean and how can the SSMP’s stop these unruly, shadow monsters? Cummings has a great group of characters that kids will connect with immediately. Boys and girls will crack up when they see the sketches and notes carefully displayed for serious contemplation. Simple sentence structure and easy to understand dialogue, along with short snappy chapters makes for a quick easy read. This tale may just inspire readers to start their own super-secret monster patrol. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard AGERANGE: Ages 9 to 12.

    My 7 yr. Grandson loves these!

    My 7 yr. old grandson was having difficulty with comprehension when reading and therefore did not enjoy reading at all. I saw the Notebook of Doom series and thought the storyline sounded like something he would be interested in so I got the first book for him. He still required some assistance with some of the words, but he got really interested in the story and asked me to get him the second book before he even finished the first one. He has now finished the first 2 books and is presently reading the 3rd one. He can't wait for the 4th one to come out in January.
