Praise For The Brotherhood of the Traveling Underpants

Praise for Melvin Beederman: "A fun, flighty caper. Slyly sprinkled with borrowings from superhero tales and packed with kid-pleasing yucks, this copiously and comically illustrated tale is sufficiently full of baloney to fly."
--Publishers Weekly "Trine's fast-paced, humorous new series will capture the hearts of bright new readers."--Jody Fickes Shapiro, Adventures for Kids, Ventura, CA(from summer 2006 Booksense Children's Picks) "Trine and Montijo have given readers an appealing superhero and his trusty assistant. These delightfully entertaining adventure stories are a must-have for most libraries."--School Library Journal
