“It’s the most magnificent boomsnickery trollsnuffery madness I’ve ever read.” — Jemima Pett
“My third, fourth, and fifth graders are completely engaged in Colin’s adventure. The plot is intricate and clever enough for mature readers and adventurous enough for more reluctant readers as well. King also has a gift for clever word use and witty humor.” –Tawnya Vollmert, elementary teacher
“Everyone in the book is pure genius. As in they’re well-written, with the same quirky goodness that helps propel the story through its bizarre and endless (endlessly fun) tunnel-like plot. Favorites were Sid with his Super Spy Guy utility gear and guide, and Grand with her rambling cleverness, flakiness and bravery.” — Awesome Indies review
