Praise For Stranger Things: A Branches Book (Looniverse #1)…
Praise for LOONIVERSE #2: MELTDOWN MADNESS"Liberally endowed with jokes, twists and comical line drawings, the tale scrambles its way energetically to a chocolaty resolution." -KIRKUS REVIEWSPraise for LOONIVERSE #1: STRANGER THINGS"This is a silly book that will pull kids in with the goofy plot and the fun black-and-white illustrations." -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNALPraise for PUNISHED!"This lighthearted fantasy would be an excellent classroom read-aloud. The language concepts are deftly explained and the clever, wordplay-filled dialogue provides numerous examples. There is an emphasis on problem-solving and self-reliance as well . . . [Young readers] will howl at the atrocious puns and repeat them at the earliest opportunity." -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL"Wordplay is at the heart of this funny, surreal adventure in which even the title is a pun . . . An appealing mix of magic and silliness." -BOOKLIST

About the Author
MATT LOVERIDGE likes to draw subjects that expose the lighter side of life, so he loves illustrating children’s books! Looniverse was the first children’s book series he illustrated. Matt lives in Utah with his beautiful, supportive wife and their three rambunctious kids (who are a constant source of inspiration!).
David Lubar created a sensation with his debut novel, HIDDEN TALENTS, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. He is the author of over thirty-five books, for readers ranging from first grade through high school and beyond. These include PUNISHED! (A Junior Library Guild Selection), the Weenies short story collections, the popular middle-grade series Nathan Abercrombie: Accidental Zombie, and the Looniverse early chapter-book series. David lives in Pennsylvania with his wife and various felines.
