Library Media Connection
“Each title puts the reader in charge of the characters’ fates, for better or worse. In addition to the adventurous nature of these books, an element of also humor exists, as the main characters continually try to outwit others. The bright, cartoonish illustrations add to the fast-pace and readers could reread each story many times with different endings…. The interactivity of this series would make it a fun addition to a library’s graphic novel section.” —Library Media Connection
School Library Journal
“There’s no shortage of excitement in these Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-style graphic novels…. For beefing up reluctant-reader offerings, these books are worth a look.” —School Library Journal
