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 analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This entire series is just fabulous. Witty and engaging. Dan Gutman's storylines, writing style and voice is just perfect for this junior primary age group. Can't recommend it enough - Grab yourself a copy - we've read THE LOT!
My daughter loves this series of book and even though she can plow through one of them in a day it is still a book that distracts her from TV, computer or video games. That is a plus in todays society. The content is decent for late second graders but I always would advise a parent to skim a book before handing it over to their child to read.
I read it out loud to my kids and we were all hysterical. They didn't even get some of the funniest references, but they loved it, and they loved that I was laughing as hard as they were. Very few books I read in the entirety of their childhood made me laugh out loud, but this is exceptional. It is the only book in the series like this, and I have read quite a few.
My 8 year old son did not want to read to himself until we found this series. Now he reads an entire book a day without prompting. He's sad because he's down to the last book in the series and it's a big series.
