 My oldest boy loves them, me not so much.  Compared to some of the garbage that's out there for that age group (8-12) it's not the worst thing for them to be reading. The Adventures of Ook and Gluk, by the same author, are awful.  Ds1 (10) is reading the Silverwing series and loves it, has read the Wimpy Kid series also but can't be bothered with anything Harry Potter.

 Ds1 liked the first one, but never really read any others. Ds2 has never shown any interest in reading it, either. I can see dd liking them, though. I'll have to offer it to her and find out : )

Kids are impressionable, whether they are aware of it or not.  From my experience as an educator and an avid reader and supporter of the public library, I have found that children who are exposed to books with proper grammar and proper English writing style tend to be better writers with larger vocabularies.  Unless your child has a strong command of the English language, I would not recommend such books as Junie B. Jones or Captain Underpants.  


What does that mean?

Quoting mamavalor:

We are book snobs so no this book isn't a favorite of ours.
