Praise for the first book in the Explorers series: The Explorers: The Door in the Alley

“In this wildly funny adventure,…animals in teeny hats, Wonderland-style logic, and loads of wordplay and sarcasm will keep readers giggling all the way through.“-Kirkus Reviews

Exhilarating….Fans of a Series of Unfortunate Events will be drawn to this.“—Booklist

A rollicking read, full of derring-do and old-fashioned villainy.”—SLJ
Funny, offbeat, and subversive…occasional footnotes and other humorous asides from the omniscient narrator break the fourth wall and ramp up the playfulness.”—The Horn Book

“Narrated with a smart, brisk tone and plenty of snark…The Door in the Alley packs plenty of twists, turns and danger.“—Shelf Awareness

The Explorers: The Door in the Alley is a rollicking and clever adventure! Chock full of brilliant plot twists, pitch-perfect humor, and non-stop action. Kress has kicked off this series with a bang!”—Arthur Slade, author of The Hunchback Assignments
