About the Author
Praise For Clueless McGee and the Inflatable Pants…
"PJ is charmingly out of touch with reality...His supporting cast adds to the laughs."—Kirkus Reviews
"Can PJ crack the case, avoid boogers and impress his absent father? Maybe not, but he’ll inspire giggles as he tries. Mack’s frenetically whack-a-doodle second Clueless McGee title manages to meld mystery and humor in a tale told as much in cartoons as text. Rube Goldberg–ian calamities and grossness are neatly balanced by good intentions and a little friendship lesson. Even a frog-smacker can see this series has legs."--Kirkus Reviews
"This is a lighthearted, silly story that will have readers both smiling and rolling their eyes. Though the joke is always on poor PJ, he learns in the end who his real friends and supporters are–and that there are many of them. This title will be well-received by graduates of Dav Pilkey’s “Captain Underpants” series (Scholastic) and those who love Jeff Kinney’s “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” (Abrams) and Lincoln Peirce’s “Big Nate” books (HarperCollins). It will also entice reluctant readers."--School Library Journal
