Great chapter books for my picky-reading son!
Reviewed in the United States on March 12, 2011
My son is 8 and loves this series....personally, I don't like reading them, but they aren't for me. Thankfully he does well enough with these he reads them to himself.
He is 8 years old and definitely has his own opinions on what he wants to read (not any of the hundreds of books his older brother liked...those, like oh, say 35 or so Magic Treehouse books, are dusty on the book shelf...). He likes Captain Underpants, the A to Z Mysteries, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and now the Stink books. He did read some Horrible Harry ones too, but he seems to have moved on from there.
His second grade teacher says he reads a grade ahead...and for what it's worth I checked the 'lexile' on this one and it's 610 for those who track that (as a quick peek I noticed the Animorphs, the Boxcar Children, Magic Treehouse and Encyclopedia Brown are in the same general lexile range). In any case, he does love these books and read this one in one sitting on a Saturday afternoon of his own volition. I looked over and there he was, reading away. Definitely a book for the 'win' column!
