“A beautiful writing style draws young readers into this unique plot laced with valor, virtue, and humor.

Kathleen Marusak, freelance editor

“Joey, my 11-year old son, is a reptile enthusiast! As we were reading Curse of the Komodo together, we made so many text-to-world connections between the story, his knowledge of reptiles, and our frequent visits to the Detroit Zoo and the Toledo Zoo. We can’t wait for 90% Human!” –Randy and Joey Maddock, Troy, Michigan

Curse of the Komodo” is a fun read for young adult readers as well as adults! Filled with animal facts and a spell-binding story, this book hooks readers from start to finish!
–L. Burnham, Teacher, Toledo, Ohio

“The power of transformation is a strong message, in the boys learning about love and compassion for their respective brother and for their grandfather. The animals use their traits to fight for each other, and for good to win over evil. As well, the curse is in fact a blessing, for in animal form they learn what matters most in life.” –Kathleen Marusak
