Kirkus Reviews

"Burns’ introduction of a pair of sweethearts, one a Flutterbudget and the other a Rigmarole, is a real treat, and her sense of geography is as goofily arbitrary as Baum’s." - Kirkus Reviews

VOYA - Sean Rapacki

"If teen readers are turned off by all the heavy and dark reads populating the young adult shelves these days, this book will provide a light and playful antidote to their woes. The book is a pretty breezy read, much shorter than your average fantasy tale, and the cliffhanger ending strongly suggests there will be a sequel." - VOYA

Kids Reads/The Book Report - Kathleen M. Purcell

"As a fan of THE WIZARD OF OZ I really enjoyed reading Burn’s spin off of this magical place. The author cleverly draws parallels of three friends traveling together to fulfill a quest. Like the original characters, each of our new characters has a special talent and a specific request. Unlike the original, they don’t have to hunt down the wicked witch. The cliffhanger ending piqued my interest --- when will the next book come out?" - Kids Reads/The Book Report

School Library Journal - Megan McGinnis, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY

"Fans of Frank L. Baum’s Wizard of Oz will take delight in the Winged Monkeys, Glinda the Good, and the Glass Cat, all of whom make appearances throughout the narrative. This story has some interesting twists and turns, and characters are well developed." - School Library Journal

Booklist Online - Kara Dean

"A twist at the end sets up a sequel, and, of course, Oz name recognition will work in this book’s favor." - Booklist Online
