Praise For Dinosaur Disaster: A Branches Book (Looniverse #3)

Praise 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. Be prepared for an epidemic of juvenile punsters." -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

Praise for the WEENIES collections
"Lubar creates characters who will quickly engage readers." -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"Suspenseful, surreal tales [that] will delight reluctant and ravenous readers alike." -BOOKLIST

About the Author

David Lubar created a sensation with his debut novel, HIDDEN TALENTS, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. He is the author of over twenty books, including PUNISHED! (A Junior Library Guild Selection), the WEENIES short story collections, and the popular middle-grade series NATHAN ABERCROMBIE: ACCIDENTAL ZOMBIE. LOONIVERSE is his first early chapter book series. David lives in Pennsylvania with his wife, his daughter, and three cats.

Matt Loveridge likes to draw subjects that expose the lighter side of life, so he loves illustrating children’s books! LOONIVERSE is his first children’s book series. Matt lives in Utah with his beautiful, supportive wife and their three rambunctious kids (who are a constant source of inspiration!).
