"I loved it. It's the kind of story you think about at times through the day... There were so many interesting, unusual and inventive things in this book, it seemed there was something new with the turn of each page: froote, [the Nuldoid's] penchant for arguing, Delnoids, the Source, Moronoids, Roundabouts, Sloidelobbs, not to mention the ridiculous notion that elected officials actually work for the people. I liked that the life beneath the Crust was similar, but so different, from life on the Crust. The journey to Nuldoid was wrought with peril and adventures at every turn, in locations unparalleled on the Crust. All of this and more sets your book apart from any other."
"This book is so hard to put down! Definitely my favorite book ever. Mr. Woody describes the characters beautifully. A great book for adventure lovers! And I am waiting for the next book to come out."

“It’s such a challenge these days to get kids hooked into reading. I took a chance on The Wheel of Nuldoid. It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read. With its comedy and dialogue, it sets the right tone for my students. Teachers are competing against technology. We have to be so animated to keep kids’ attention, and this book does it.”

"Lewis Carroll with a touch of Mark Twain. On the surface, The Wheel of Nuldoid is a wonderfully playful fantasy for kids, with an adult philosophy primer below. A fantastic trip all around."
"This is the greatest book I've ever read."
—ASHLEY TABACH; Los Angeles, California
“If you’re a fan of The Hobbit and The Wizard of Oz, you’ll love The Wheel of Nuldoid! Woody takes the reader on a whirlwind trip to a hundred magical places that are both wildly funny and awe-inspiring. If you think funerals are fun and weddings are depressing… you might be a Nuldoidian.”

"I finished this book around two days ago, and it is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Russ Woody goes beyond being a good author."

"A rescue mission can take you to the center of the Earth and back again. 'The Wheel of Nuldoid' tells the tale of Warren Worst as he follows a kidnapped friend into the bowels of the Earth. Only in sixth grade, he seems ill-equipped for all the strange creatures and adventures he finds in the city of Nuldoid, found at the center of the Earth. An entertaining and charming fantasy for young readers, 'The Wheel of Nuldoid' is a very highly recommended pick."
—THE MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
"Without a doubt, the funniest, finest, most comprehensive book ever written about the creatures of Nuldoid."
—TED DANSON, actor
"I quite enjoyed my trip to Nuldoid. Russ Woody has a most intriguing imagination with a good dose of sentimentalism thrown in. The story reminded me in parts of Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl series and I could definitely see other stories about Nuldoid come from Woody. I liked the way he didn’t talk down to a YA audience and used some pretty big words. It’s good to introduce YA’s to vocabulary, especially when the Nuldoid-speak is such a grammatical mess! But by the end of the book I could practically speak Nuldoid myself, which really scares me. All in all, I think The Wheel of Nuldoid was a very nice foray into the YA market and look forward to where Russ Woody goes from here with it."
—FIONA DARROW, author
“Wanted to let you know that your novel has surpassed the 11-year-old test. My stepson, Noah, is thoroughly enjoying it and won't let me have the book back until he's finished! With an endorsement like that, I'm looking forward to the read. Assuming I ever get it back.”
—RALPH SCOTT, Petaluma, California
"This is an awesome book. I would really recommend it to anyone over the age of seven or eight. I found that as I was reading it, I actually could block everything out that was going on around me, and I was just engrossed in the story. Very creative! Please make it a movie too!"
—CHRISTOPHER ROGERS, Florida
"Holy Lloyd an' Floyd, yas gots we talkin' jus lika dem Noids! What a fantastic book. I couldn't put it down and as soon as I turned the last page I flipped it right back to the front and read it again. Loved it! The creatures of Nuldoid are so original and entertaining in their behavior, outlook on life and death, and especially their speech patterns, not to mention a great story that there is no way this book won't become the next Harry Potter. I'm anxiously awaiting a sequel."
