Dear Flyary Hardcover – March 1, 2012
"Young lards the text with enough otherworldly words -- noteymaker to exboom to peepered -- to keep readers on their toes and to beef up what is essentially a story about remaining true to your old and trusty friends. Adding to the endearment factor are Martz's illustrations, as shiny and color-shot as ribbon candy, from Hoolo's classic mechanic's shop to the traffic jam on the flyway. There is much fun to be had sounding out words and guessing at their meaning and roots, as planet Harbat's jabberwocky attests." --Kirkus
