From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up–Although presented in a pocket-size, minibook format, the paintings, drawings, and sculpture within explode with dizzying color and movement. Readers are bound to get the sense that they have fallen through Alice's rabbit hole into a breathless world that is intricate, surreal, and chaotic. This is a vision where wax paper boxes sprout legs, teacups become tigers, train engines are set against bubble-gum polka dots, doughnuts sport Popeye-style muscle tone, and shoehorns are feathered, toothy, and psychedelic. Von Szombathy has adeptly drawn on influences of vintage comics, advertising, and underground screen printing. The overwhelming Pop aesthetic is perhaps too complete, however. Like a bag of Skittles that satiates the senses but leaves a growling stomach unappeased, Fire Away seems to stop short of moving beyond vibrancy and skillful design. On the other hand, creative teens looking for a quick sugar high to ignite their imaginations will be fired up with this offering. Not an essential purchase, but an attractive choice for collections in which alternative art is popular.
Shannon Peterson, Kitsap Regional Library, WA
