Review: "Come along for a whimsical adventure of Monkey Pants. Always on the outlook to have fun, Monkey Pants does not pay attention to her brother's warning on the consequences of spilt milk. Come on seriously what is so wrong about spilt milk?
The glorious imagination of Monkey Pants takes the reader and child on a journey of sharing what happens next before turning the page. A skill imperative to developing a child's imagination and creativity and Doug Schwartz does a terrific job in formulating such an experience. The crayon child-like illustrations by Jordan Beckvonpeccoz add to the allure of Spilt Milk, which is sure to become a go to book for bookshelves across the globe."

Pickled Bananas and Other Schwartz Stories
Review: "While an anthology of stories can be hit or miss (everybody has their tastes), there is a lot to like in Pickled Bananas; while all the stories have a similar tone and style to them, you are bound to find a favorite or two among them...Yes, Pickled Bananas will probably leave you with a good taste in your mouth, and waiting anxiously for more."

Their intersecting journeys take you everywhere from Austin, Texas, to the world of dreams and even to the afterlife.

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."
