"I love these books--and so will upper elementary readers. Graphic novel conceits are well integrated with a diverse cast of characters. Subject-area content feels organic and the back-matter adds to--rather than waters down--the narratives. The recurring characters, Spanish-language, vocabulary support, and clear parallel structure between the books in a series will engage avid and struggling readers alike. I can't wait to see what's next!"
—Dr. Wendy Stephens, Assistant Professor of Library Media, Jacksonville State University
