Introduced at the end of Skye’s Wonkenstein (2011), Potterwookiee is another weird combination of fictional characters: a small-scale mix of Chewbacca and Harry Potter. He has got Harry’s glasses, scarf, and scraps of his clothing, but in Skye’s kidlike illustrations, “Hairy” looks pretty much like a Wookiee. His magic spells don’t start working until the end of the book, when middle-school narrator Rob Burnside needs help with an audition for a reality TV show called Average Chef. Focusing less on school than friends, foes, and Hairy, Skye delivers a familiar and appealing mix of anecdotes, sketches, and self-deprecating humor. He is also an able satirist of family dynamics. Next up: Pinocula. Grades 4-7. --Abby Nolan
“The text is hysterical by itself, but acts as the straight man in relation to the one-two punch of the childlike drawings and captions that appear on almost every page. Get multiple copies of this book: it will fly off the shelves.” ―School Library Journal
“The second doll-sized literary mashup to come out of a wimpy kid's magic closet adds wizardly spells [and] noxious smells…” ―Kirkus Reviews
“A mashup of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and Chewbacca the Wookiee from Star Wars . . . sure to provoke laughs” ―Publishers Weekly
“Comfy antics for readers who don't probably much like reading--which, one thinks, is exactly the point.” ―Kirkus Reviews on Wonkenstein
“Quite funny and has a lot of laugh-out-loud moments. . . . the idea of a hybrid Willy Wonka/Frankenstein character is original and hilarious.” ―School Library Journal on Wonkenstein
“Highly amusing new series starter. . . . Skye gives Rob a self-deprecating charm and highlights the pleasures of books both subtly and effectively.” ―Booklist on Wonkenstein
“Filled with spot-on commentary and a wince-inducing supporting cast, middle grade guys won't be able to keep Wonkenstein to themselves. . . . This pitch-perfect offering should appeal to reluctant readers, not to mention the legion Wimpy Kid fans.” ―Shelf Awareness on Wonkenstein
