Hilarious, laugh-out-loud fun for middle-grade readers. "Kirkus Reviews, starred review"
The writing is sharp, unpredictably clever, and establishes third grade as a minefield of the absurd--which is to say, real life. "Avi, Newbery Medalist on Justin Case: School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters"
Vail employs easy, direct language in a rhythm, and syntax that captures the essence of a charming, lovable, and very believable boy. Readers transitioning to longer fiction will groan, sympathize, and laugh out loud in delight. Absolutely marvelous. "Kirkus Reviews, starred review on Justin Case: School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters"
Honest and full of heart, Justin Case is a story for an oft-ignored segment of kids: the sensitive, introverted, and observant. The format will remind many readers of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but with fewer illustrations and a more reflective tone than Jeff Kinney's series. This is subtly satisfying storytelling. "School Library Journal on Justin Case: School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters""
