"An excellent story that entertained me and made me think, with great characters and a plot that moves...[Scrimger] deserves kudos for a stellar job."

"[The] adventures are exciting and readers will be anxious to pick up the next book in the series. Great for middle grade boys who want realistic fiction with action and suspense."

"What I loved about this book was that I could never see where it was going. I mean never. Right up until the end. "

"Bunny is a likeable, engaging narrator whose storytelling style is captivating both in its naïveté and in its omissions. In its idiosyncratic rendering of the ambiguities of language, the text reveals many moments of unexpected insight and brilliance...This is a surprisingly rich book, despite its casual presentation...It is clever in its execution and wise in its thematic treatment."

"Readers will be too engrossed in the upshot of Bunny's honesty and incomprehension to realize that Ink Me exposes the vulnerability of perceptions to misinterpretation...A brilliant story, less about gangs and tattoos than about our relationships with others and the roles misunderstanding and perspective play in securing or destroying the integrity of those connections."
CM Magazine - September 7, 2012
"An exciting story [with] a lot of hearty laughs at Bunny's misunderstandings and their consequences."
Kirkus Reviews - September 1, 2012
"[An] enjoyable fable of Toronto gang life recorded in believable, phonetically spelled prose...Most intellectually disabled characters in children's fiction are siblings or pals whose treatment by other characters signals their compassion or otherwise. Bunny's a rare hero—not on anyone's journey but his own."
