Obviously with a comic-style book there aren't many words to the page and there are lots of short phrases or single words/sounds rather than full sentences, which goes with the style (the language is very American). I expect they are brilliantly useful for encouraging reluctant readers - it must be a massive boost for a child to see how many pages s/he has read and enjoyed - and if getting your child reading is your top priority, then these will be a great choice.
But for a child who is not particularly reluctant, I struggle with the idea of allowing them to read too many. What bothers me is that there are deliberate spelling and grammar mistakes ("supa", "more worser" etc.). I expect this is meant to be part of the fun, but I am not sure it is fun for a reader who doesn't yet know which version is correct. This must just be confusing for readers still learning correct spelling and syntax. Am I taking this too seriously? No, I don't think so, because readers of these books are at such a very important developmental stage. Reading books full of deliberate mistakes is bound to undermine both their learning and their understanding that things like grammar and spelling actually matter and are worth getting right. Such a shame!
Anything that gets my children excited about reading gets a thumbs up for me, even if it’s not always grammatically correct. Who cares? They are reading!!
Next dogman book is on their lists to Santa!
Finally found something that keeps his attention.
