Praise for the Iggy Loomis series:
 
“Piles on the yuks…. It doesn't take psychic powers to see how this could be a crowd pleaser.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
“Allison creates a comically put-upon older brother in Daniel in a lighthearted story that captures the chaos of everyday family life, superpowers or not.”
Publishers Weekly
 
Praise and Accolaides for Jennifer Allison's Gilda Joyce series:

* "Will make readers giggle out loud." – School Library Journal, starred review
 
* "[Allison] not only offers a credible mystery...but also, by allowing readers inside the heads of both girls, provides particularly strong characterizations–much more substantial than the ubiquitous first-person narrative would have offered." – Booklist, starred review
