Ursula Vernon does a terrific job of making kids laugh and squirm at the gross, stinky descriptions, and the friends' snarky banter. But Vernon also works fun science into the mix. I know a lot of kids will think it's pretty cool that Steve is out in the jungle studying bats, trying to find new species. Really, though, what draws kids in and hooks them are Vernon's illustrations. The book is full of bold, two-color drawings in green and black. I especially love Danny and Wendell's oversized, expressive eyes. There are illustrations on nearly every page, some as comic book panels, and others as spot art sprinkled throughout the text.
Don't think these are just fluff books though, these are solid well fleshed out little stories. Just enough innocent mischief and intrigue to keep the kids chewing through without being obnoxious.
A wonderful series, with all my kids now enjoying it. Beautiful little hardback books!
As a parent I appreciate that they are funny without being totally stupid and that they are easy to read without being "dumbed down". I would say the reading level is higher than Big Nate but not as high as say Harry Potter. These are great transition books for readers who need a bit more of a challenge. However they are also great for more advanced readers who just want to read a great story about an amazing adventure.
Overall a great series and I would highly recommend for the 8-9 yr old set.
