Praise for this book

"Fans of the Magic Treehouse have found their next grand adventure, this one in even bigger proportions...Parents will appreciate the beautiful values on display such as apologizing, uplifting different creative ideas, and controlling one's outlook in less-than-ideal situations. What a fun ride!"

- Hope Bolinger, author of 25+ books, including The Cassandra Curse

"Dessi and Ky Go Poof reminded me of a Magic Tree House adventure intertwined with the magic of Harold and the Purple Crayon. Yamnitz brought in elements kids this age love-pirates, dinosaurs, and sports-and a family dynamic kids understand. References to Mexican foods and traditions makes the story appealing for a diverse audience of readers. I enjoyed this fun story.

- Lori Z. Scott, bestselling author of the Meghan Rose series

"Dessi and Ky Go Poof sweeps readers into a fun, fantastical, and light-hearted swashbuckler. Candice Yamnitz obviously knows and loves her readers well and offers them a safe passage into adventure!

- Amanda Cleary Eastep, author of the Tree Street Kids series

I just read this entire story aloud to my almost four year old. Even though she said she doesn't like long stories, at every chapter she told me to keep going. When we got to the end, she was amazed that we were already finished. I told her it was time for us to review the story, and asked her to help me choose the stars, with one being the smallest and five being the biggest. What would she choose? She thought for a minute and said, "Five, the biggest!" I think her answer really says it all.
