Editorial Reviews

"This book provides lots of excitement and is an easy read...Readers will enjoy the graphics and the exciting pace of the story...Recommended."

— School Library Connection

"The world of goblins, trolls and other monsters has many similarities to our world and the concept of allegory is beautifully depicted."

— Resource Links

"The book seamlessly moves from text to illustrated panels...The pace is swift...[readers] will careen along as gleefully as Tank and Fizz themselves, rejoicing when all ends well...A perfect mix of monstrous and silly."

— The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"What can a trio of fourth-graders do, opposed by corrupt officials, a bully with a pair of hulking hench-ogres, and a local business tycoon with—as it turns out—a high-tech hand-held demon controller? Well, plenty, though not without a few missteps, help from a surprising temporary ally, and lots of climactic bot-smashing. In a slick mix of narrative blocks and panels of nonscary monsters delivering punch lines in dialogue balloons, the exploit careens along to a triumphant close. High-energy high jinks in a multicultural, or at least multispecies, setting."

— Kirkus Reviews
