"Zusak's popularity is well-deserved. He writes emotionally engaging stories with understated humor and a bittersweet style that refuses to play by straightforward grammatical rules. His earliest published works share many of the same stylistic hallmarks and themes of belonging and survival." -- LOS ANGELES TIMES

"With this compilation release of THE UNDERDOG, the rough-and-tumble adventures of the Wolfe brothers are finally all assembled. Zusak's stunning use of language and rich character development are present, while the introduction of the family framework provides additional understanding for the sibling dynamic in the later stories. . . . Appealing to fans and providing an entry point for fresh readers, this is a much-appreciated addition to the Wolfe brothers' canon." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS


"THE BOOK THIEF will be appreciated for Mr. Zusak's audacity, also on display in his earlier I AM THE MESSENGER. It will be widely read and admired because it tells a story in which books become treasures. And because there's no arguing with a sentiment like that." -- NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"Zusak doesn't sugarcoat anything, but he makes his ostensibly gloomy subject bearable the same way Kurt Vonnegut did in SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE: with grim, darkly consoling humor." -- TIME MAGAZINE
