Editorial Reviews


As I read this book, I felt so happy, sad, frightened, and confused that I wondered if I’d lost my mind. As we know, this is a sign of an extraordinary book.” —Lemony Snicket, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events

“If you are looking for stories that are odd or mysterious or happy or sad or just plain weird,
you should get over to Cattywampus Street. Right now!” —Jon Scieszka, author of the Time Warp Trio books
“You won't know what's coming at you in these stories, but you will know that
you’re with a master storyteller who is going to take you on a remarkable ride—so hold on tight!”Gary D. Schmidt, author of Newbery Honor Book The Wednesday Wars
“The kids who live on Cattywampus Street are just the kinds of kids I want for neighbors—full of whimsy and magical wishes and frogs and monkeys.
These stories make me feel like anything is possible.” —Kathi Appelt, Newbery Award–winning author of The Underneath
“Welcome to Cattywampus Street—
a plum collection of stories for readers who love the magic and mystery of a town just around the corner from your imagination.” —Jack Gantos, author of Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key
These surprising, silly, sometimes spooky stories are magical, inclusive, and always, always funny. Read them aloud. Jahn-Clough knows how the hearts of children beat.” —Emily Jenkins, author of Toys Go Out and Harry Versus the First One Hundred Days of School

“This quirky, often bizarre story collection follows the lives of kids who live on ­Cattywampus Street, described as “long and twisty, way out in the middle of ­Nowheresville.” It is home to a
diverse cast of kids who experience a mix of silly, scary, weird, and magical events.” —School Library Journal

1.0 out of 5 stars Too dark
Reviewed in the United States on May 25, 2022
The stories are strange. But the story about the dead cat and dead brother last me. I don't find this entertaining and wouldn't encourage my children to delight in this either.
