Are You a Believer in Fanciful Things? In Pirates and Dragons and Creatures and Kings?

Then sit yourself down in a comfortable seat, with maybe some cocoa and something to eat, and I'll spin you the tale of Katrina Katrell, a girl full of courage (and daring, as well!), who down in the subway, under the ground, saw something fantastical roaming around . . .

What was it she saw? I'd rather not say. (Who's ever heard of a Zorgle, anyway?)

But if you are curious, clever and brave, if intrepid adventure is something you crave, then open this book and I'll leave it to you to uncover the secret of ZORGAMAZOO!

Join Morty the Zorgle and Katrina on a fantastically illustrated, you'll-wanna-read-every-word-aloud, sophisticated rhyming adventure for kids of all ages!

Quotes & Awards

  • “[The] scuffle between enchantment and tedium is the very stuff of childhood, where the greatest menace isn’t scary creatures and such but listless imaginations and a lack of wonder. In that way, this book is a natural descendant of the works of Dr. Seuss and Roald Dahl while hewing close to the droll atmospherics of Edward Gorey and Lemony Snicket.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Weston maintains the rhythm and energy of sing-song rhyming couplets throughout the tale and holds his audience’s interest with suspense and dashes of humor.”

    School Library Journal

    " eh... it was okay. Kind of a mix of Roald Dahl and Dr. Seuss (I didn't make that up, it was on the cover, but it's true nonetheless). Kind of tedious to read, but cute story line. "

    " I listened to this book on CD and it is amazing! The whole book is in verse! Three hours of rhyming. I'm very impressed. I can't write a four line poem. The narrator was Irish and it was fun to listen too. Very adventerous too. "
