Praise For Batneezer: The Creature From My Closet…
“Comfy antics for readers who don't probably much like reading--which, one thinks, is exactly the point.” —Kirkus Reviews on Wonkenstein
“Quite funny and has a lot of laugh-out-loud moments. . . . The idea of a hybrid Willy Wonka/Frankenstein character is original and hilarious.” —School Library Journal on Wonkenstein
“Highly amusing new series starter. . . . Skye gives Rob a self-deprecating charm and highlights the pleasures of books both subtly and effectively.” —Booklist on Wonkenstein
“Filled with spot-on commentary and a wince-inducing supporting cast, middle grade guys won't be able to keep Wonkenstein to themselves. . . . This pitch-perfect offering should appeal to reluctant readers, not to mention the legion Wimpy Kid fans.” —Shelf Awareness on Wonkenstein
