Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

There's definitely a little something for everyone here: This is an adventure story, a history lesson, and a coming-of-age tale all wrapped up into one. There's even a little bit of mystery (who is sabotaging the Flash?) -- and a hint of romance, thanks to a strong-willed female journalist who comes along for the ride. Readers who are paying close attention will find some interesting historical details about life around the turn of the century, and those familiar with Verne's original story will appreciate how details from the first book are worked into this sequel. But even those just looking for a fun, fast-moving story to race through will find plenty to hold their interest as Harry and his traveling companions face arrest, kidnapping, vandals -- and worst of all, the threat of losing the bet.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
