We're running low on inventory.A thrilling and hilarious middle grade story, The Ministry of SUITs by Paul Gamble gives its readers a silly, but oddly thoughtful adventure they surely won't forget. But the wackiness doesn't end here at all―it all continues in the sequel, The Monster's Daughter."A zany explosion of hilarity." ― Eoin Colfer, author of the Artemis Fowl series"It's like Douglas Adams wrote Men in Black but with Pirates, Dinosaurs and the Tooth Fairy. Genius, but a comic evil genius methinks." ―Mo O'Hara, author of the My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish series "Gamble’s debut novel is overflowing with offbeat humor...An entertaining read for fans of humorous adventure, such as Michael Buckley’s “NERDS” series." ―School Library Journal
