    “Funny, fantastic, and adventurous.” —Samantha Bee, host of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee 


    "Rubens, a veteran writer and producer of late-night comedy, revels in parody, wordplay, and spoofy send-ups of Harry Potter-ish antics, with flecks of Lemony Snicket for good measure. He shows great affection for librarians, annoying siblings, things that kids intuitively know, and dogs, doggs and dogggs... Abrakadonculous! Especially good fun for a rainy afternoon or a not-too-groggy sick day."—Kirkus Reviews
