A Couple of Reviews To Help You Choose
KCWANGSVICK 5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series of books – My grandson really likes them –
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.
Melissa 5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful chapter books!
My 9 year-old third grader has been looking for “chapter” books within his reading level. He is very interested in his older brothers old books but is not yet ready (Diary of a Wimpy kid, Captain Underpants etc.). These were recommended to me by a friend and I decided to give them a try. I went on AR finder and checked the reading level and immediately ordered a few. He has not put these books down since they arrived. He is your typical boy- loves the outdoors, trucks, video games and so on. He was so excited that he has been showing extended family members his new chapter books. After reading a few pages he will excitedly tell me different things that are happening in the stories. I love that he can take these to school and take AR quizzes and keep them in our home library to read again later. If you have a 3rd grader that is not yet ready for “chapter” books, you will not be disappointed with these.
