“Whoever thinks the short story is dead, or that kids don’t like short stories, hasn’t talked to any real live kids and hasn’t read the latest in this popular series.”

“Lubar keeps the pace changing and injects plenty of humor… All in all the gathering assays out as rich in eye-rollers, groans and mild chills.”
