Product description


Praise for Let's Get Cracking!:An Amazon Best Book of the Month, January 2014*"Marko's debut is a perfectly puntastic page-turner. Hybrids of comics and traditional pictures, the goofy all-color illustrations propel the fast-moving, high-interest story. 'Ham and eggs!' --you don't want to miss this!" -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review "This hilarious kickoff to the Kung Pow Chicken series [is] just the thing for beginning readers." -- Publishers Weekly"Step aside, Captain Underpants! There is a new hero in town--this time, with feathers.... Fresh, funny, and packed with full-color illustrations, this new transitional series will be an instant hit with readers looking for silly fun and a touch of mystery." -- Booklist"Frequent poultry plays on words are sure to ellicit giggles from young readers. This [series] will have broad appeal among independent readers who have outgrown easy readers but are not yet ready for books relying more on text than illustration." -- Praise for Bok! Bok! Boom!:An Amazon Big Spring Book, 2014"Plenty of punny action in the colorful mix of comic panels and short paragraphs of text. Fans will be glad Kung Pow has at least two more adventures on the way." -- Kirkus Reviews"Jokes and puns will keep the attention of eager new readers looking for a fast-paced, funny adventure with unlikely superheroes." -- School Library JournalPraise for The Birdy Snatchers:An Amazon Editor's Pick, Summer 2014
