Praise for Extremities

Selected by the American Library Association for the 2014 Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers list.

“Whoever thinks the short story is dead, or that kids don’t like short stories, hasn’t talked to any real live kids and hasn’t read the latest in this popular series.”
—School Library Journal on Attack of the Vampire Weenies

“Bullies and others get their due in this hilarious new collection of thirty-five warped and creepy tales by the master of the ‘weenie’ story.”
Buffalo News on The Battle of the Red Hot Pepper Weenies

“This book will talk itself right off the shelves, and reluctant readers will devour it.”
— School Library Journal on The Curse of the Campfire Weenies
