“[The Last Last-Day-of-Summer is a] zany, clever adventure filled with surreal humor… Anchored by its genuine characters and buoyed by its true fun, this is an adventure with staying power.”—Booklist, starred review

“[Hackl’s] plot, full of adventure, treasure hunts, and mystery, will keep young readers hooked.”—School Library Journal

“Morelli has done it again—given us an indelible and lovable character with a hilarious voice. Norbert M. Finkelstein is the big-hearted middle school teacher and wrestling coach with a secret identity. With nonstop action and uproarious humor, [this book] will have readers hooked.”—Lisa Williams Kline, author
