Praise for Spork Out of Orbit:
"A breezy, humorous lesson in honesty that never stoops to didacticism. The other three volumes publishing simultaneously address similarly weighty lessons—lying, shyness, bullying, and responsibility—all with a multicultural cast of Everykids…A good choice for those new to chapters."—Kirkus

"Kids will want to read more about Spork and his hilarious adventures on Earth!"—S. Buckles, Tarver-Rendon Elementary School, Association of Region XI Librarians, Fort Worth, TX
