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

Publisher Marketing:
Stermont's latest monster is a real scream!
