"Greg Heffley and Ellie McDoodle, move over—Aldo Zelnick is here!" —Mary Lee Hahn, 4th grade teacher and notable children's books committee chair for the National Council of the Teachers of English
"One of the most remarkable things about these books is the voice of Aldo, which rings true from every page. The hilarious drawings enhance the text with jokes and visual humor that make Aldo's personality pop." —Rebecca McGregor, Picture Literacy, Inc.
"This is a book that definitely speaks 'kid speak.' The first installment of an A-to-Z series, this is perfect for reluctant readers. It's fun for kids and will be appreciated by parents and teachers for the amusing 'back door' approach to enriching vocabulary. Look out Wimpy Kid!" —Stacy Morris, Katy Budget Books, Kids' Next Winter 2010-2011 nomination
