This is a fun, easy going read and my son really likes these books. I think they have a wide age range appeal. The first book was given to my 11 year old daughter when she started secondary school under some scheme to give each 11 year old a free book. She quite enjoyed the book and read some of it to my 7 year old (who dislikes fiction and has just acquired good fluency in his reading). My son really loved the book (even though all the charcaters are in "middle school" in the US - I think that means early secondary?)and read the rest of it himself. I have now bought the rest of the series.
The books have quite large print in a hand written font on printed lined paper and are liberally pepperred with line drawn cartoons of the characters with funny bubble enclosed quips. I think this layout of not being too dense and having the cartoons really makes for ease of reading and would appeal to children who are a bit put off by dense, small print, crowded chapter book/novels that can seem very daunting. They are also good when you just feel like having a light read, nothing to have to think about very deeply.
I didn't think the books were particularly funny myself , really quite light observational humour- but I'm nearly 50 not 10 years old!
It fell on my head whilst I was looking through the comedy books in my local library and I decided to take it home with me and read it. This book that fell on my head was the original first book.
I was delighted with it and had no iota there was a second book. When I heard about it as Kindle Edition I went BONKERS! The most funny book ever
