Review Quotes



★ "Cheeky humor and prideful asides will have listeners in stitches. A closer-to-perfect pairing couldn't be imagined. Everyone wins!"--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

★ "Daywalt's text, set in a range of expressive fonts, combines the heightened verbosity of vintage action comics with the swagger of backyard scuffles, and Rex composes wildly dramatic battle scenes against backdrops of thunderstorms, erupting volcanoes, and missile launches. Forget reading aloud--this story demands bombastic, full-volume performances."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

★ "The earnest gravity of the fighters' quests paired with the mundane setting and melodramatic tone are perfectly balanced to produce a brand of purely absurd, sidesplitting humor that kids will gobble up."--Booklist (starred review)

'The title and cover image are enough to get you giggling all on their own. But the epic battles depicted by children's book powerhouses Drew Daywalt and Adam Rex are sure to have us in stitches." Best Books of the Month--Brightly

★ "Laugh-out-loud funny and outrageous at times, this read-aloud will have listeners jumping out of their seats. This is the sort of story that makes children love to read."--School Library Journal (starred review)

★ "While kids will snicker reading this on their own, it's perfect for a guffawing share with younger sibs or buddy read, followed, of course, by a rousing game of Rock Paper Scissors."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
