"In his debut novel, Dreece mixes clever fairy-tale references (to, for example, "The Three Little Pigs"--LeLoup, the Cochon brothers) with intriguing contraptions, appealing characters, snide villains, humor, and an exciting story " - Kirkus Reviews
"Adam Dreece adroitly weaves fragments of classic fairy tales into his original and exciting steampunk fantasy story... Dreece's nod to steampunk is fantastic and filled with odd and exciting devices that delighted this reader as much as they do Tee and her friends." - Readers' Favorite
"I loved the stories individually, but getting them as a box set is a *great* way to get a jump on the series for new readers. Adam Dreece really did fantastic work on the Yellow Hoods, and I've used the box set as a good excuse to go read through it. There's twists, turns, some humor, and lots of adventure. The best part is that you don't need to be a teen to enjoy this series - it has appeal for the young at heart too" - Amazon.com Reviwer
