"Many independent readers, particularly boys, will identify with these characters and their struggles. The series continues to present appealing and likable characters gently exploring the moral dilemmas of childhood." —Kirkus "Budding zoologist Carlos is a great addition to the roster at Carver Elementary, and whether kids have read the previous title in the series or not, they’ll find him appealing and authentic company." —Bulletin Praise for Skateboard Party: The Carver Chronicles, Bk 2 "A welcome series addition that emphasizes familiarity instead of difference and treats its message with an affectionately light hand."—Kirkus Reviews Praise for Dog Days: The Carver Chronicles, Bk 1 "Chapter book readers have few options if they want to read about urban boys of color; here's hoping for more.”—The Horn Book Magazine
