Praise For Kid Amazing vs. the Blob…
"Schneider's take on the new-baby syndrome is fun and inventive. Kid is admirably willing to help his mom with this blobby creature and applies great care and cunning in his machinations, all cleverly depicted in lively pen-and-ink-and-watercolor illustrations... Imaginative new-sibling fun." —Kirkus Reviews
"Schneider’s (Everybody Sleeps [But Not Fred]) jaunty illustrations give this sly superhero story an extra goose of irreverence and theatricality. Extra kudos to the author for refraining from a reconciliation between Kid Amazing and his nemesis, although the Commissioner does admonish him to “please stop calling your sister the Blob” in a nice throwaway line." —Publishers Weekly
