Raves and Reviews

The second book in the Styx and Scones series is another fun adventure where the cat and dog duo are warned about messing with magic but do it anyway. . . . Cooper's antic cartoon panels starring an odd-couple cat and dog keep the pages swiftly turning. A how-to guide in the opening pages helps kids unfamiliar with reading comics grasp the conventions. A strong choice for kids who like Andy Runton's Owly series.
