Praise for Guys Read: Funny Business…
Utterly dude worthy.
A must-have collection for the boys in your library—and while you’re at it, get a copy for the girls, too!
-Booklist (starred review)
Future volumes will cover such genres as nonfiction, science fiction, mystery, and sports. If they’re as good as this one, boys--and girls--are in for a treat.
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Funny Business, sets the bar high....Will have readers laughing as they turn the pages.
