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.

This book is exciting and full of adventure! It is a little scary at times but as long as your child doesnt have bad dreams or worry too much about monsters it should be fine. The characters are fantastic and kids can really relate to their stories.

I loved it

I loved it! It has a huge amount of violence and gore, including an impaled little girl. Not for the easily scared or grossed out. For a mature reader.
