Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This funny story of a boy who messes up while trying to do what he thinks is helpful is full of kid-centered reasoning about stepping up to save your home and family. A big theme is that events are open to interpretation. Like Rudy sees his injury as something serious, and Iggy thinks he should look on the bright side, because his finger wasn't chopped off. His parents think he should have thought more carefully about putting people at risk with his big hole, while he thinks they should hail him as a hero for protecting the house. Lots to chew on here (besides Iggy's Halloween candy), and lots of laughs along the way.

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.
