The award-winning magazine was named among the “great magazines for kids and teens” by School Library Journal.
See Curse of the Komodo’s first magazine review on page 56. Reviewer Diana Perry wrote: “….This is the ultimate field trip nightmare…and young readers will be most entertained.”
Curse of the Komodo…
Not your average sci-fi adventure!
Though it looks like a simple action/adventure story, Curse of the Komodo is filled with deeper meanings and metaphors about values.
Joey R., a sixth grader from Troy, Michigan, did a book report on Curse of the Komodo and nominated it for the “Troyberry” award. (An award given by his school.) Joey wrote: “Since I have read this book, I have thought about what people really mean to me.” He added, “the boys (in the book) learned that having a brother is more a gift rather than a curse.” Joey closed the 2-page paper with this; “If you consider reading this, remember to be grateful for what you have. I certainly am!”
