Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal Audio
Gr 4–6—Katrina Katrell has a feisty demeanor and vivid imagination. She is under the care of boring and mean Mrs. Krabone who wants to stifle her whimsical thoughts by cutting out the "naughtiest bits of her brain." Upon overhearing her guardian talk with the lobotomy doctor about the "cranial puncturing mincer of mind" tool, she hightails it out her bedroom window where she meets her rescuer, Morty. He's a non-adventurous, hairy creature called a Zorgle who has been chosen by lottery to search for the missing Zorgles of Zorgamazoo. Together Katrina and Morty find Zorgamazoo, only to be captured and transported to the moon where all the interesting and fantastical creatures are being taken. Graylians from the planet Graybalon-4 are behind the heist to acquire more Tedium Steam. Robert Paul Weston's well-crafted rhyming verse is funny and gross, reminiscent of Roald Dahl and Dr. Seuss. Alan Cummings expertly executes the intended rhythmic meter and brings a myriad of characters to life with his complex and raspy voice. His Scottish accent will draw listeners into this fantasy land.—Caitlyn Walsh, Fayetteville Public Library, Fayetteville, AR
Booklist
. . . a natural descendant of the works of Dr. Seuss and Roald Dahl while hewing close to the droll atmospherics of Edward Gorey and Lemony Snicket.
The Horn Book Magazine
A well-constructed story with fully realized characters and plenty of humor. The rhyme is almost flawless . . . Fancifully frightening illustrations and typographical trickery create an inviting visual package.
Quill & Quire
Zorgamazoo is a story rich in clever wordplay, unusual characters, and fantastic circumstances...The book's illustrations are reminiscent of the oval-eyed, twiggish vulnerability of Tim Burton's creations, and the details of the story traverse some of the same dark territory.
Canadian Review of Materials
Readers can make text-to-text connections to other quest stories such as Alice in Wonderland and even Homer's Iliad...What a wonderful way to re-awaken the enchantment of the imagination for readers - young and old!
School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Katrina Katrell has sassed her guardian, Mrs. Krabone, one too many times. "Krabby," as Katrina calls her, decides that a lobotomy is the best way to quiet her charge. Katrina, as wily as she is smart-mouthed, narrowly escapes. As she's fleeing, she meets Morty, a curious creature called a Zorgle. He's on a quest to find the missing Zorgles of Zorgamazoo, and since Katrina is homeless, she joins him. Their travels take them to the moon, where they discover that the Graylians of Graybalon-Four have kidnapped the Zorgles. Katrina and Morty come up with a solution that releases the Zorgles and satisfies the Graylians, too. Katrina's new set of unconventional friends frighten Mrs. Krabone into leaving her alone for good. Told in couplets, this story was meant to be read out loud, and Alan Cumming is up to the task. His Scottish brogue is a joy to listen to, and he performs fitting voices for each of the characters. He also does a fantastic job of illustrating the visual elements of the text with his voice. For example, in the written work there may be a single word on a page or a word written in very large type. Cumming uses appropriate pauses and changes in volume to reflect these details. The overall effect is an audiobook that is at once lulling and rhythmic as well as terribly exciting. Listeners will relish every minute they spend in Zorgamazoo.—Amy Holland, Irondequoit Public Library, Rochester, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Preteen Katrina Katrell has always seen things others don't. Her bored and boring guardian Mrs. Krabone is so fed up she calls lobotomy specialist Dr. LeFang to take care of the problem. Katrina escapes but gets into further trouble, and reluctant adventurer Mortimer Yorgle, a Zorgle who lives in a parallel world beneath the ground with other fantasy beasts, comes to her rescue. The two set off to find the missing Zorgles of Zorgamazoo. What they discover is a nefarious plot from outer space to make Earth more boring by kidnapping fantastical beasts (which, by the way, are real) and upping the production of Tedium Steam. The planet behind the plot, Graybalon-Four, runs on the stuff. Much saving of the day ensues. Weston's debut fantasy in rhymed verse is at once silly and gross. If Seuss and Dahl collaborated early in their careers, something similar might have resulted. Though the language is often a slave to the rhyme, and that rhyme is sometimes a stretch, Snicket fans and reluctant readers not afraid of a peek at verse will likely feel right at home. (Fantasy. 9-11)

    Katrina Katrell suffers under the spiteful eye of her guardian M

    Katrina Katrell suffers under the spiteful eye of her guardian Mrs. Krabone. When Krabby decides to get Katrina a lobotomy to get rid of her wild imagination, she runs away. She find Mortimer Yorgle, who is (unwillingly) on a quest to save the Yorgles of Zorgamazoo who have mysteriously vanished. They team up and have many fun adventures. This book is written entirely in rhyme—reminiscent of Dr. Seuss. It’s the kind of book that really ought to be read aloud. I was lucky enough to get it in audiobook form, which was VERY well read. Some of the rhymes were rather clever, and the book was lighthearted and silly. Very enjoyable!
