To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My son loves this series! Normally, a book narrated by a girl named Pearl involving a (spolier alert) unicorn princess would be a fat "No Thanks" for my nine year-old son, but he makes an exception for books in this series because the main characters get to travel across dimensions to imaginary worlds and battle evil forces (and their own negativity and fear) to save animals. And "Dr. Woo is cool. And Ben is pretty cool." And there's a dragon who plays fetch! I especially recommend for any child who loves animals and/or fantasy. Great for reluctant readers, to read alone or with a parent. The story moves quickly, with plenty of action and very manageable chapters. The books also touch on issues many children face, such as financial hardship, divorce, jealousy, keeping secrets, breaking rules, etc. in a sensitive and gentle way. Highly recommended!
My wife is a librarian and we have been reading these to my 8 year old every night. Cute little book with a few pictures. Great story with funny characters and some adventure that isnt too scary. Great for story time or readers 10 ish years old. Whole series is great.
My 8 year old son and 10 year daughter love this series. But, they seem to fly right through the books - maybe not very challenging. But we all need those every once in a while. They will finish these books in one sitting if they are can.
My kids LOVE this series. They are waiting impatiently for the fifth volume to be released in a few months. The characters are appealing and relatable, and the adventures are neat and are served up well. I enjoy sharing these books with them! They say they wish there was a movie version too.
My 8 year old started with these books earlier this year, and he loves them. He asks for the next book as soon as he is half way done with the one he is on. he can't wait to see what happens next. Well worth the money and a great read.
I've read this series with my son (since he was 5, he's now 6) and we both love these books. I also love the 'creature connections' at the backs of the books that have history and science projects aligned with an aspect of the text. Fun reads, highly recommend!
