Here's what people are saying about everyone's favorite amoeba! New York Times:
An energetic, good-hearted escapade, one that young readers will enjoy. Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews
* Hilarious. If ever a new series deserved to go viral, this one does. The Bulletin:
A perfect mix of writing that is simple enough for early readers but still remarkably snarky, clever, and entertaining. Kids will soak up the humor, tidbits of science instruction, and adventure.
