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.
We brought a young mind into our home who everyone said "can't read." "He doesn't like to read. He doesn't like to be read to." So we looked for something unique and fun. Before we were half way done with this book he would get upset if we missed reading time. And before we were done he decided he wanted to learn to read.
The story is fun, and the language is simple enough for kids to understand. The illustrations are also eye catching. I appreciate the help this series has given us in reaching some kids that didn't want to be reached.
This series struck a cord with my son at 8yrs old and he still claims it's one of his favorite series. He's a skilled but not enthusiastic reader. He also enjoyed the following books: The Hatchet, Wednesday Wars, Fablehaven Series, Notebook of Doom Series, and Eerie Elementary Series.
Absolutely delightful. The ratio of comic to text is low enough that I felt like my son had to do a good, solid amount of traditional reading with this, but it never lost his attention, and the occasional comic page was more of a fun “bonus” than a constant interruption. Plot is silly/fun enough to engage a reluctant 9yo but writing is imbued with surprisingly sophisticated dry humor that made me laugh as he read it to me. Did not expect that in a 3rd-grade level book and am not sure he got every joke, but I did. Thrilled to find this series and definitely buying more.
I am interested in my great grandson developing the habit of reading for entertainment. He likes series books. This is his new series. He is 10 yrs old. He has read the DogMan series as well as others.
I bought this for my great grand son. He loves series books. I like that I can continue to order him affordable books. He read the Dog Man series as well as many others. I recommend buying the books a child likes to keep their interest in reading. Great book for boys! very entertaining!
I bought this for my son on the off chance he may enjoy it. Been a fan of Ursula for years and have always been meaning to buy one of the kids books for my son. Got the first Dragonbreath book and holy heck he loved it! So much that he asked for more! I bought the 4th book at the bookstore and got 2 and 3 via Amazon. The rest are going into his Christmas list per his request! Can't wait to introduce him to the hampster princess as well. :D
