Jimmy Bishop's crimefighting vampire dog isn't acting very vampire-ish lately, his best friend Irwin is consumed by birthday party planning, and his crush Daisy is into cheerleading! Things are really changing, and Jimmy doesn't like it one bit. What does the future hold for the Crimebiter gang?

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Crimebiters!:

"Lively dialogue and brief chapters punctuated by Jimmy's wry observations keep the story moving swiftly, while Stower's cartoons underline the comedic wisdom of some of the facts Jimmy collects ('Fact: Adults never eat the disgusting stuff they feed you.') and the madcap action that unfolds." — Publishers Weekly

"Readers will be laughing out loud in this tale about Jimmy and his new dog. Jimmy believes that his newly adopted dog, Abby, is a crime-fighting vampire. Jimmy's adventures, the first in the Crimebiters! series, will appeal to all tween readers, but especially to boys." — School Library Connection

Praise for Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading:

* "Hilarious... This debut is filled with passages that beg to be shared... With its subversive humor and contemporary details drawn straight from kids' worlds, this clever title should attract a wide following." — Booklist, starred review

"This is a fun, fast-moving look at middle-school life through the eyes of a kid who would rather clean his room than pick up a book. Reluctant readers will be pleased." — School Library Journal

"Charlie Joe's insider knowledge of the inner machinations of middle-school cliques will make younger readers smile in anticipation, and his direct address to readers makes him feel like an older buddy showing the way... Slackers everywhere have a new, likable hero in Charlie Joe Jackson." — Kirkus Reviews

"Greenwald pulls off a clever bit of reverse psychology in his debut, first in a series starring a cheeky middle grader who goes to great lengths to avoid reading — and whose humor and rapid-fire delivery should draw in like-minded kids." — Publishers Weekly
