Praise For Whales on Stilts! (A Pals in Peril Tale)

*"Armed with an array of adjectives, non-sequitors, bizarre asides, irrelevant footnotes, and running gags, Anderson sends up decades of children’s book series, and creates a hysterical tale of his own."

Publishers Weekly, starred review


*"Goosebumps fans and readers who get Lemony Snicket’s brand of humor will be rolling in the aisles."
