This fine combination of clever kids, arcane mysteries, and witty conundrums falls nicely in-line with other novels featuring riddle-solving kids and literary and linguistic references.
- Publishers Weekly
The plot is unique, imaginative, creative, and fresh and I like how the authors bring the written word, grammar, books, and libraries alive. The illustrations add to the appeal of the book and it is a good read for all those kids who love mysteries. The characters are interestingly portrayed and the concepts will not only encourage children to read, but will make them more imaginative and adventurous in their thinking and creativity.

Copy Editor, Nicole Ayers
My name is Nicole Ayers, and I have worked with writers for more than a decade. As a former educator, I had the privilege to teach writers of all ages and abilities. I love the moment when all the puzzle pieces of a novel click together in my head and I know exactly what suggestions will help the author improve the manuscript. I love helping writers turn their rough manuscripts into polished prose.
Developmental Editor, Betsy Thorpe
I have been in the book business now for over twenty years. Every year since, journalists declare that the book business is dead. And every year, we prove them wrong. Why? Because there are a lot of readers out there who love to read new and exciting books that cause them to see the world in whole new light. Readers learn from books, they might escape from their everyday lives, or they might get inspired to change their lives. Great writers and books can do that.
