  • 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

    "Clever text full of witty asides." -SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

    Praise for MORE BEARS!
