Praise for Stuey Lewis Against All Odds

“With a broad emotional range in both writing and illustrations, this is a cut above most early chapter books.” —Booklist

“Stuey is just the right kind of friend--confident and independent--for any third grader.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Schoenberg perfectly captures the humor, and heart, of second grade.” —Claudia Mills, author of 7 x 9 = Trouble! on The One and Only Stuey Lewis

“Kids will love Stuey's daring schemes, laugh hard and long at his missteps, and sympathize with his hidden fears.” —Ann Cameron, author of The Stories Julian Tells, on The One and Only Stuey Lewis

“Stuey's fans will be crossing their fingers for a sequel.” —Kirkus Reviews on The One and Only Stuey Lewis
