Praise

Wesley is a nonconformist suffering rejection from classmates . . . until he puts his school lessons to use and founds his own civilization–Weslandia . . . Combining the allure of fantasy and science fiction with the dismissal of socially acceptable norms creates a true paradise for today’s pre-teen and terrific fodder for social studies classes. At another level, the story works for younger children, who will be drawn to the art and appreciate Wesley’s inventiveness, idominitable spirit, and ultimate triumph.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

This fantastical picture book, like its hero, is bursting at the seams with creativity . . . a vigorous shot in the arm to nonconformists everywhere . . . It’s difficult to imagine a better pairing than Fleischman and Hawkes to bring this one of a kind kid–and his universe–so vividly to life.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
