Have a collection of theses books.
Whenever I want to gift children something, I first remember
I have a movie collection of the same.
Still experience of reading book is different.
Quality of paper could have been better.
Book is kinda funny to read even though you are an adult. It's a quick read and would be appropriate for any kid above 10.
Delivery is fast and quality of product is also good. But i received no bookmarks with the book which was kinda unexpected.
The book is funny and enjoyable,on first day itself i read about 50 pages at single sitting
The book is definitely addicting

They have all heard about the books, some have seen the film and the 'handwritten' text with plenty of cartoon type pictures is different and less daunting than the usual page full of print.
The books do contain some difficult vocabulary but my pupils know that I will read for them any words they do not recognise or cannot quickly work out or guess so their confidence isn't dented and they can get on with enjoying the humour. They like the fact that they are reading the same popular books that their friends have been talking about. Some very reluctant readers have even asked me if they can start the lesson by reading - unheard of. I know some have bought their own copies of the books.
I like them too!
He started reading it on a night before bed with his Mum or Dad, but was soon off reading it on his own. Before long he was onto book 2, so I bought book 3 as his Easter gift instead of chocolate - he was (genuinely) overjoyed! He has started reading these books at any given opportunity - even on the 25 minute drive to school.
Given that most of my nephew's conversations in the past revolved around computer games, it was really good to hear him talking with such enthusiasm and laughter about the books; books which he had read himself, and which he had fits of laughter with as he tried to talk you through some of the antics within them!
I did get a little feedback from my sister about his use of "moron" and "jerk" which he picked up from the book, but this soon settled down - enough for her to invest in the remaining books of the series!!
Overall, I would recommend all of the books in the series - had I known of their success in getting him interested in reading for enjoyment I would have bought the boxset at the outset!!
