"the Crogans' escapades are becoming simplysome of the finest comics adventures around." - Booklist (STARRED)
"The cartoonillustrations seem simple at first, but every emotion the characters go throughon their journey is visible on their faces. Schweizer keeps the drawingsvisually compelling, yet extremely basic at the same time, and kids will forgetthey're reading in black and white. While obviously geared toward youngerreaders, this is a story that a wide range of ages will enjoy." - School Library Journal
