This should be pretty obvious from the title of this post, but Once Upon A Tim just got a rave review from the New York Times.
You can read the whole thing by clicking here, but here are some notable quotes:
“Fans of heraldic silliness like “The Princess Bride” and “Shrek” will delight in “Once Upon a Tim,” a charming take on the traditional knightly adventure.”
“The book’s fun comes from Gibbs’s deployment of deadpan humor and boisterous slapstick. Its heart lies in a clever subversion of type.”
“Writing may be magic, but so is reading.”
I should point out that Booklist also gave Tim a great review as well:
“This giddy romp through a medieval setting, complete with menacing trolls and gigantic, bloodthirsty butterflies, is the start of a promising series.”
Excited? Ready for a good story? Then just click here to order the book!
Also, I am happy with any good review, especially ones from readers. So if you have enjoyed Tim (or any of my books) feel free to post a positive review on Goodreads. Just click here.

Congrats Mr. Gibbs,
You are the best author and you make the best books that i have ever read in my entire life. I love how big your imagination is. I hope you continue to make outstanding books for people to read!
It was a very good and funny book
This book had loads of twists. Especially the one in the end. It was AWESOME
The 7th Grader –
I would imagine getting an ARC and being able to read the book early would still be annoying in some ways. Being able to talk about a book with others is one of the best parts about reading. So not being able to talk with anyone about the book would be quite annoying in my opinion.
I went to the NTTBF22 from little rock Ar.
it was so fun and I got 3 of my books signed
SS super fan –
Thanks for coming all the way from Little Rock. It was great to meet you.
The 7th Grader-
I bet that it’s an actual job. I was asking if you thought it would be a fun job to have.
A few months ago, you deleted comments from several posts. Why?
Dorothy Zbornak –
Every once in a while, I have to clear out comments to save memory on this site.
What was the most angering moment for u in SS?
mine would probably be the moment in SSR when ben is about to ‘make his move’ and chip barges in.
I think all your books are awesome, thank you for being such a great author!
mine is in ssr and ssas because at the end off ssr trixie gave ben a wink that mike could not see but trixie still went for mike that did not reall make me mad it just made me a bit confused but if trixe would have started to date ben i wonder how badly that would screw bens life. this is a response to alexander zverev.
cool. btw to everyone when i say ‘angry’ that was a poor choice of words. I meant when your not angry but ur like “Ahh why??” your not angry your just… idk how to explain it but I hope u all understand.
Apologies if i offended any1
We’re all cool 🙂 no worries
btw I’m back B)
welcome back, and thanks
This book is pretty awesome
The 7th Grader-
I meant as like a job. I think that it is an actual job and I meant would you like to have that for a job.
I know I would!
^^ no probz!
What does everyone like most about this book? I like the twists!
My least fav moment is Zoe turns on Ben in SSR. (Yes, i was a Zen shipper. Don’t know who I ship nowadays) :/
Oh yeah, I love Zoe so I was like, WHYYY? But I was always a Berica shipper
I like your series, Spy school, so hopefully this series will be likeable too!
