About the Author

Allan Woodrow, a.k.a. the Wooden Walrus, is confident you can’t prove he is an evil villain, or that he lives outside Chicago with his wife, their two daughters, and two goldfish. The goldfish are especially nasty and are currently under watch by the FBI.

Aaron Blecha, a.k.a. Captain Calamari, was raised by a school of giant squid in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He is now an artist designing toys, making cartoons, and illustrating children’s books in London. Reports of his leading an international squad of evil super fish cannot be substantiated.

What People are Saying About This

While I understood the humorous premise going into it, I was not prepared for the absolute hilarity of this book. It is really clever. So if your kids - like mine - are younger than the recommended 8-12 age group, you will not mind reading this one to them. It took 3 days for me and my 5 and 7 year olds to get through it. We read before bed, and the first 2 nights they were disappointed that we couldn't finish it. The 3rd night we also read the bonus chapter; they just couldn't get enough of Zachary and Newt! It may be helpful to let you know that my 7 year old is a girl - this is definitely NOT just a book for boys! She's been quoting phrases, developing creative characters and scenarios, and reading it for a second time on her own. Usually sensitive to gender differences (boys can't do xyz, girls only get to do xyz), she's been able to bridge the gap and actually like a male character. Way to go, Mr. Woodrow! I highly recommend this book to other parents - and kids.
