THE KIDS OF CATTYWAMPUS STREET
“As I read The Kids of Cattywampus Street, I began to feel so happy, so sad, so upset, so frightened and so confused that I wondered if I had lost my mind. As everyone knows, this is a sign of an extraordinary book.”
Lemony Snickett, author of the Series of Unfortunate Events
“A very fun collection of odd tales. Something for every(strange)one. If you are looking for stories that are odd or mysterious or happy or sad or just plain weird, you should get over to Cattywampus Street. Right now!”
Jon Scieszka, author of The Stinky Cheese Man
"These surprising, silly, sometimes spooky stories are magical, inclusive and always, always funny. Read them aloud. Jahn-Clough knows how the hearts of children beat."
Emily Jenkins, author of Toys Go Out
