Family Review Center Editor, Rita Brenke said, "I have followed and reviewed for this author for the entire series of Sir Licksalot books. I think they are absolutely fantastic. Now that I have an avid reader at home, these chapter books are honestly her favorite.

Author D.L. Carroll and illustrator Teri Cuneo made a guest appearance at Briarwood Elementary School on Read Across America Day (Dr. Seuss's Birthday). Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participated by bringing together students and books. Principal, Mrs. Jezyk remarked, "We here at Briarwood are excited and honored to have D.L. Carroll, author of the 'Sir Licksalot' Series, visit our school to help us celebrate. Ms. Carroll will be meeting with small groups to read a little from her books, discuss her creative process, talk about the publishing process, and answer student questions."
In a statement made by Author D.L. Carroll, "This has been one really exciting year and it just started. We were absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to share the 'Sir Licksalot' books in person with the 380 students. As I read the first couple of chapters from the first book, Teri drew the scene. The students were engaged and full of questions during the Q&A session. This is what life is all about – writing to ignite a child's desire to read, putting smiles on faces, leaving paw prints on hearts, and encouraging the next generation to achieve their dreams."
Each book in the series is a fast paced thrilling adventure. The characters have very distinctive personalities and behaviors that mirror readers and their friends. The stories all have a magical destination and include friendship, conflict, mystery, imagination, and most importantly relatable language.
The books are written for reluctant and hi-low readers. What is special about this series is that the language is simple. The reader doesn't have to re-read the sentence a couple of times to comprehend it. The chapters are short so the reader can retain what has been read. In addition, each book has a message. Readers find themselves learning new things without even realizing they are being taught.
