Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for THE NOTEBOOK OF DOOM #1: RISE OF THE BALLOON GOONS
"Cranking up the horrorlarity with googly eyed cartoon figures and sight gags on nearly every page, Cummings pitches his nervous but resourceful newcomer into a climactic, all-out battle with an entire army of aggressive, air-stealing bendy balloons.... An unusually promising series opener for proto-Goosebumps fans." -KIRKUS REVIEWS

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

Praise for MORE BEARS!
"[Artwork that is] infused with zaniness of fun." -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

Children's Literature - Ann Cannon
Bright and shiny objects are not safe in Stermont. Everything bright and shiny is disappearing. Alexander Bopp is a student who sees monsters and other weird things. He keeps a notebook which belongs to the Super Secret Monster Patrol, whose job is to protect Stermont from monsters. The students are learning about the legend of the bumpy mummy in class. Alexander’s class goes on an overnight field trip to the history museum. During the sleepover, Alexander thinks he sees the real bumpy mummy walking around and sets out to stop the monsters and recover the Ruby Scorpion, an expensive gem. Cummings tells this adventurous, thrilling tale with cartoons full of wacky details that kids will find appealing. The drawings by Katie Carella and Liz Herzog interrupt the text enough to make it easy to read. This is a favorable series for reluctant readers. Cummings engages the readers as they get into the story. The story is mesmerizing and the reader will keep turning the pages. Students who enjoy this book will want to look for previous books in the “Notebook of Doom” series. Reviewer: Ann Cannon; Ages 8 to 10.
