'This pseudo-science-fiction book provides laughs of all types: readers will progress from snickers to giggles to, finally, belly laughs and shouts of outrage...Puns, shaggy dog stories, snarky remarks, and hoaxes are just a few of the humorous elements used expertly here...The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Doctor Who fans are a natural audience for this story, but it may well build a broader readership once the word gets out. (Science fiction. 14 & up)--Kirkus

An engaging series starter.--Booklist on The Firebird Mystery
