Praise for Look out for the Fitzgerald-Trouts

“These kids are witty, full of heart and genuinely fun to read about… a wacky, lighthearted romp.”
— The New York Times Book Review

“Fans of Lemony Snicket and Roald Dahl won’t want to miss Look Out for the Fitzgerald-Trouts.”
— Parents magazine

“The Fitzgerald-Trouts…live happily in a tiny green car on a tropical island filled with creepy iguanas and mysterious forests. In Look Out for the Fitzgerald-Trouts, you’ll read about their unforgettable adventures.”
— Boys Life magazine

“Look Out for the Fitzgerald-Trouts by Esta Spalding is an adventure of the best kind. For fans of The Boxcar Children or even The Swiss Family Robinson, Look Out for the Fitzgerald-Trouts is a fun, hilarious, and heartwarming story.”
— The Clarion-Ledger

“The Boxcar Children meet Dahl in a Hawaii-like setting here and it’s all sorts of fun, with just enough snarkiness to add edge to the charm and wonder. A clever but subtle twist at the end adds even more amusement, and the overall effect is as pleasing as a tropical breeze.”
— The Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books

“If the story’s magic lies in its Dahl-esque approach to topics like homelessness and parental neglect, its heart lies in the relationship between these four mutually devoted children.”
—Publishers Weekly

“A warm, genial, wholly original voice.”
— The Horn Book

“Playful…the episodic storytelling and intrepid, clever children easily carry the plot, and a hint of further adventures happily signals a sequel.”

“Have you ever wanted to live on an island filled with selfish grownups and blood-sucking iguanas hiding in a dark and mysterious forest? Me neither. But the brave and inventive Fitzgerald-Trouts have such fascinating lives that I just might reconsider – as soon as I read this glorious book again, at least twice. I salute thee, Fitzgerald-Trouts!”
— New York Times bestselling author Lemony Snicket
