Raves and Reviews
A punny good-versus-evil story populated by fast foods kicks off a graphic-novel series for chapter-book readers. . . . A dastardly villain, a dash of humor, and a dollop of K.E.T.C.H.U.P. combine to model positive social skills.
– Kirkus Reviews, May 2021
This high-energy, playful friendship story . . . gently introduces young readers to the comic format, with each page containing four or fewer colorful panels featuring expressive characters. . . . A great introduction to comics for beginning readers.
