PAY ATTENTION TO READING LEVEL
Reviewed in the United States on August 31, 2017
Pay Attention to the Reading Level of this book and probably this whole series. It is marketed to grades 1-4. My 4th grader loves fun stories like these but was told by her school that this book, specifically, are not acceptable for her to read because it actually has a Reading Level of 1.9, that is a FIRST GRADE reading level. I contacted the publisher, Penguin Random House to find why there was such a disconnect with the actual reading level of these books and to their marketed audience and of course, they could not provide an answer. I asked for the author's email and she said that all authors at Penguin Random House do not have email accounts to "protect their privacy." It is a shame when an author, someone who is making a lot of money from his books, cannot connect to the actual people who are reading his work and paying his income. Our family does not intend to read any more books from Penguin Random House.
