5.0 out of 5 stars Turned out to be a great present and will be purchasing the entire series!
By Tina G. on December 31, 2017
Bought this book and book #2 for a Christmas present for my nieces as they are transitioning from “little kid book” to “chapter books” as one of my nieces likes to say…
They were both excited to start the books. One turned to me after opening the present and said “you want me to read a chapter book?!”
Fast forward to reading at home with some help from mom. Turns out they both love these books! The books are pretty thick and worth the price. Will definitely be purchasing the rest of the series.
Will even be passing the book onto my nine year old nephew who has dyslexia and is just learning to read- the pages and text are not too overwhelming and will update my review with his experience of the book.

I see some of the lower star reviews saying “fart humor” is bad- the book is about being able to change yourself to be a better person. Did these people read the book? Or are they so offended that a fart joke does it for them now? This book was written for kids- and kids tend to find fart jokes funny- it’s a phase we all go through.

Would recommend for kids who are transitioning to chapter books, who love to read, who love to laugh, or if you’re looking for a nighttime book to read with your kiddos.
