Praise for" Dorko the Magnificent"
"A young would-be magician gets lessons in both stagecraft and life from a crusty elder... the supporting characters steal the show."
"Short chapters keep the story moving. Robbie has impressive determination, but it is Grandma Melvyn who is the star in this moving story."
"Satisfying and enjoyable, Dorko will engage reluctant and voracious readers alike."
"School Library Journal
