Jack the Ripper for children?
Reviewed in the United States on May 10, 2020
I have always loved A-Z Mysteries. As a teacher, I read them to my students and reccomend them to families. The characters and story lines are always great. This book, however, references Jack the Ripper several times. It tells in detail that he murdered women. That is completely inappropriate for young children. I can only imagine the responses I would get from parents if I read this aloud to the children. It's too bad because the rest of the story is entertaining. Normally this series is a hit. This book, however, is a big fail.
