Review: "A little spilt milk can cause a BIG FLOOD of problems as demonstrated by author Douglas Schwartz in his picture book, SPILT MILK. As the title promises, spilt milk is the problem presented in this book. Main character, Monkey Pants, is as unique as she is creative. When her milk spills, the adventure begins. Hold on to your hats in this one because you're in for a ride. This story is full of twists and turns.
The story's text provides a multitude of imagery such as, "Monkey and Anson paddled up to a chef using a large bowl like a boat and a large spatula like an oar." Illustrator, Jordan Beckvonpeccoz's artwork is simplistic but expressive.
Every child has experienced spilt milk or spilt liquids of some sort. It's a right of passage into adulthood where we spill less but still spill, all the same. I think children ages four to seven will enjoy the adventure this story provides."

Pickled Bananas and Other Schwartz Stories
Review: "Pickled Bananas is full of wit and whimsy. Fantastic things happen to normal people, and normal things happen to fantastic people. The book contains lots of surprising situations, turns of phrase, good humor, fun characters, and silliness -- mixed with some heartfelt, poignant moments and life lessons. The style and tone remind me a lot of Douglas Adams and Neil Gaiman. If you like them, you'll like this collection."

Muggle Studies is a work of original fan fiction.
Review: "It was actually very good, with an actual plot rather than random nonsense that I have come to expect of Hitchhiker's Guide fanfiction. And your writing style - hats off! You totally nailed it - it was like I was reading a one shot written by Adams himself. And the humour was actually really good - not tacky and forced as it generally is in a lot of fanfiction."

More Than Dalek
Review: "A brilliant idea to use an octopus and merge it with a Dalek. It would be something terrifying. And the end was rather chilling. :)"
