Review Quotes:
Praise for THE NOTEBOOK OF DOOM #1: RISE OF THE BALLOON GOONS

Cranking up the horrorlarity with googly eyed cartoon figures and sight gags on nearly every page, Cummings pitches his nervous but resourceful newcomer into a climactic, all-out battle with an entire army of aggressive, air-stealing bendy balloons.... An unusually promising series opener for proto-Goosebumps fans. -KIRKUS REVIEWS

Praise for THE EENSY WEENSY SPIDER FREAKS OUT!

Clever text full of witty asides. -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

Praise for MORE BEARS!

[Artwork that is] infused with zaniness of fun. -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
