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.

Very cheap jokes and I’m fact is very violent for two school kid to hypnotize their so called mean principle down to his underpants without his Consent Andretti g him into all kinds of mean trouble. What kind of message are we teaching kids about punishments revenge being in considerate and violent!!! You can’t be in the right mindset if you write such stories for young readers and fill up with all kinds of potty jokes and words about butts and cracks to get them addicted to the stories. Not healthy!!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
