Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Advance Praise for Mac Undercover Funny as a crumpet. (But truly, secretly a hundred times smarter.) -- Jon Scieszka, author of the Caldecott Honor Book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales and the New York Times bestselling series Frank Einstein With a perfectly absurd premise, dialogue that demands outlandish accents, and a plot that interweaves global history and complete silliness, Barnett royally nails it. -- Abby Hanlon, author of the Dory Fantasmagory series Praise for Mac Barnett: [Mac Barnett is] a great young writer of books for young people. If you haven't read his work, run somewhere and do that. Books for young people have a rich and I daresay limitless future -- knock anyone who says otherwise into a ditch -- and Mac has a central place within that limitless future. Don't bet against him or anyone like him. -- Dave Eggers
