A fun romp that will appeal to boys and girls of all ages, nine and up!
Thoroughly silly and campy!
–School Library Journal
Septina Nash is smart, sassy, and has a delightfully refreshing attitude.
All hail Septina Nash!
–Anne Ursu, author of The Shadow Thieves
[Septina Nash] made me laugh and snort and pee (just a little bit.)
–Amy Goldman Koss, author of Poison Ivy, Side Effects, and others
Hilarious! Brilliant! Thrilling! And weird enough to appeal to even reluctant readers, literate penguins and math teachers. An insanely brilliant fast-paced adventure.
–Linda Joy Singleton, author of the Seer series and others
Funny, kid-friendly, and irreverent–just how I like my books. It’s chock full of silliness. Reading The Penguins of Doom is like visiting a funhouse with a gang of charming comedians and oodles of toys.
–Debby Garfinkle, author of Storky, The Band, and Stuck in the Seventies
This was a gift for my 10 year old niece. She loves it – she couldn't put it down. She kept quoting parts of it to her mother as she was reading it.
–Amazon Reviewer Jellogirl
I remember as a teacher looking for exciting books that would appeal to the reluctant reader. Imagine my excitement when one such book came my way! Original and hilarious, this tale is sure to be a hit with tweens. I highly recommended this book to those looking for an unique story that will make you smile.

I bought my 12-year-old the "Penguins of Doom." This kid has a profound learning disability and absolutely dislikes reading anything. The term reluctant reader doesn't go far enough for her. Then Septina Nash arrived. My daughter hasn't put this book down since it arrived two days ago. Instead of being frustrated, she is actually enjoying the challenge and the discovery of the words. One writer to another, congrats! Parent to author – thank you, thank you, thank you!
–Kim W. Justesen
Told in a cheerful and unique voice, this is a fun, quick read!
