"Funny, and entertaining....A must for young writers...and a fab, fun writing manual for writing teachers everywhere." --Kirkus Reviews, **STARRED REVIEW**
"Jam-packed with both writing advice and jokes... this
two-for-one tale is as smart as it is entertaining." -- Publishers
Weekly, **STARRED REVIEW**
"What an amazing read, full of bizarre kid logic and fun, and brought to life with the usual care & empathy that the Story Pirates always show to young writers!
-- Patton Oswalt, Emmy and Grammy award winning actor and stand-up comedian "Do you want to laugh? Or get yanked into a nonstop, page-turning adventure? Or be inspired to write your own story? Or maybe you want to eat a double stack cheeseburger with onion rings? Okay, if it's any of the first three, then this is the bookfor you. If it's the last one--sorry, we can't help you there."
-- Adam Gidwitz, best-selling author of A Tale Dark and Grimm and the Newbery Honor-winning The Inquisitor's Tale "So zany and imaginative, it's no surprise an actual kid inspired it. You'll laugh a lot--and learn a lot, too."
-- Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever
