It’s not terrible

My 5 year old daughter got this book as a birthday present and she absolutely loves it! She’s been telling me about the events in the book and she’s already read it like 10 times and she got it I think 2 weeks ago!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

With kid-eating playground sets, attacking boilers, surprise labyrinths, and more, these books are for young readers who enjoy fast-paced, scary stories. The writing is engaging and the tension is high; sometimes it seems like any or all of the kids are going to die. Kids will enjoy reading about scary things that happen at school, and probably not realize that they're learning how to use logic to solve big problems or how to work cooperatively. The vocabulary is slightly advanced for younger readers, but the books will be a scary breeze for readers comfortable with chapter books.

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.
