—Mac Barnett, Caldecott Honor–winning author of Extra Yarn

“[A] cozy contemporary novel about lifting spirits and rebuilding community through teamwork and imagination.” —Publishers Weekly

“A warm and rewarding read . . .Eggers skillfully handles the trope of the kids who save the town, with plenty of humorous adult cluelessness but an equal measure of compassion.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Original . . . and always intriguing. . . . Eggers’s story moves along briskly thanks to mounting suspense and bite-size chapters.” —Booklist
