Raves & reviews:

Advance Praise for Mac Undercover:

"Funny as a crumpet. (But truly, secretly a hundred times smarter.)" -- Jon Scieszka,
author of the Caldecott Honor Book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid
Tales
and the New York Times bestselling series Frank Einstein

"With a perfectly absurd premise, dialogue that demands outlandish accents, and a
plot that interweaves global history and complete silliness, Barnett royally nails it." — Abby Hanlon, author of the Dory Fantasmagory series


Praise for Mac Barnett:

"[Mac Barnett is a great young writer of books for young people. If you haven't read
his work, run somewhere and do that. Books for young people have a rich and I
daresay limitless future — knock anyone who says otherwise into a ditch — and Mac has
a central place within that limitless future. Don't bet against him or anyone like him."
— Dave Eggers
