Editorial Reviews

"With a teacher who turns any conversation into a math lesson, Bruno tackles daily life with a great sense of humor and originality. Cartoonish pen and ink drawing complement the silly tone and create an appealing transitional chapter book."

— Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media

"Young readers will enjoy Bruno's funny stories, short chapters and cartoon illustrations."

— Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group

"Bruno has so much personality he almost leaps off the page, and the energy of the book marches its main character. Bruno's hijinks are entertaining and true to life, with every chapter acting as a fast-paced, self-contained story...Highly recommended."
