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.
I have not read this book but recommend it nonetheless as it is one of the first books that my 10 year old has ever actually wanted to read. Reading is a big chore for him - he hates it, and I find this so depressing cos I have made the effort to have so many different books available over the years.
But he actually likes this series! He wants them all, but some of the prices on Amazon are silly, so we just got 2, and he read them straight away and had finished both within the hour.
Just great. So hard to find chapter bootfor a young reader that are not too long plus fun and not rude, this series is just the one, our kids has read them all and reread them regularly his older sisters borrowed it a few times
And I like them too. I learned about this series when visiting family and saw that my 6 yr old grandson had two (of the 9) books in the series. His mother liked them as they didn't have offensive words (like fart and poop and snot and other stuff that so many young people's books seem to have these days. It is male-centered in a world (it seems) of books geared to girls these days -- and the male-figure ones are outlandish in wording and bodily-function jokes. The main character is a boy mouse and the adventures are fun for young boys who want to be a hero of sorts in a simple life. The Mighty Robot is the hero but his owner is 'the little boy mouse'. Fun for adults to read out loud and many simple words so young readers can want to read them too. At first my grandson was disappointed that the 'new' books were a reprint edition of the ones he had but then he realized that the pages were thicker, the graphics cooler and now he wants new books of the two he already had (which he found a a used books store/thrift store). Even the older edition books he read at the library had torn pages (thin newsprint pages). So he agreed the new books would work out just fine. He was super surprised that his grandmother was able to find all the books he was missing (the other 7) and they arrived a few days into her trip - lots of time left to read them all.
My visually challenged child can read the words, and it’s a chapter book. I’m so glad the author spells the words correctly. Mr. Pilkey, if you ever read this, I want you to know that my kid reads your books and loves them. I appreciate that the words are big enough for a child who is legally blind to read, but would appreciate it if he would recognize that kids his age who only read Pilkey books eventually become horrible spellers.
