  • * "Comically overheated narration... fire-roasted settings and hilariously imagined creatures." (Publisher's Weekly, starred review).

  • * "This title will be hard to keep on the shelves." (School Library Journal, starred review).

  • * "Dinotrux ruled their world, now they're likely to rule this one too. Bellow on!" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

  • Praise for Substitute Creacher:

    * "Gall's illustrations use speech bubbles that drip with green slime and graphic-novel elements to great effect, creating artwork that pops off the pages and appears almost three-dimensional.... Great for both Halloween and the start of a new school year, this is certain to provide more than a few laughs."
    (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

  • "[Gall] produces his linocut-style compositions with hand-engraved, clay-coated boards, and the smooth results are striking." (Publishers Weekly).

  • Praise for Dear Fish:
    "A gold mine...Gall's art will hook more than a few readers." (School Library Journal).
