“Ray Friesen is a remarkable cartoonist. He makes the silly funny and the funny sublime. The world seems lighter after reading a Ray Friesen book.” — Jimmy Gownley, author of Amelia Rules!
“Ray Friesen is a veritable fount of silliness... Pirate Penguin vs. Ninja Chicken is filled with nonsense, from the copyright page to the comics to the endpages, and it’s guaranteed to make your geeklets giggle.” — Jonathan Liu, Wired GeekDad
“The humor comes at a furious pace, with sometimes four of five jokes crammed into a single panel. Lots to look at here.” — Jesse Karp, Booklist
“A comic book writer/artist of considerable talent and originality.” — Midwest Book Review
“The jokey asides and playfully sophisticated take on language are reminiscent of Walt Kelly’s Pogo... [a] manic blend of mayhem and adventure.” — Ian Chipman, Booklist
“Ray Friesen promises to break new ground in silliness.” — Wizard
"The short stories will keep the interest of your most reluctant readers, and the action almost makes it like you are watching a cartoon on TV... Great for fans of Dav Pilkey and Diary of a Wimpy Kid." — No Flying No Tights
