"I read this book in one sitting I was so riveted by the narrative style and the action and I think it's a book that will have great re-reading value. I'm excited to see what happens in the other adventures in the Slug Pie stories series as this seems to be a fresh, action-packed take on the standard middle grade fantasy genre." ~Bruce Gargoyle, The Bookshelf Gargoyle
"How to Rid Your Swimming Pool of a Bloodthirsty Mermaid . . . I enjoyed the heck out of it. I wish this series had been around when I was a child. It stars three kids, Mick, his brother Finley and a local rich kid called Pj. . . . The mini-gang reminds me of the group from The Goonies or, perhaps Stand by Me. . . . the camaraderie is there with just the right amount of stressful thrills of horror to balance it." ~Frederick H. Crook, for The Review Board at therevboard.com.
