  • Praise for School of Fear 2: Class Is Not Dismissed:
    "This sequel uses the wry humor and outrageous situations that characterized the first book and makes for an entertaining read." (School Library Journal).

  • "Daneshvari expertly keeps the humor fresh and the pacing frenetic." (Kirkus).

  • Praise for School of Fear (Book 1):
    "Imagine a humorous middle-grade novel by a less self-absorbed Woody Allen to get an idea of this intelligent and witty children's debut." (Publishers Weekly).
