Editorial Reviews


“The scrapbook-style design of the series lends itself to easy browsing, but these titles will serve well for reports, too, and are sure to interest readers who are looking for something a little different for their research.”  —School Library Journal

“Nguyen’s cartoonish illustrations and Bridges’ cheekily humorous text are entertaining.”  —Horn Book Guide
