Horror series

I have a problem with robbing children of their innocence. That is exactly what this series does. There is already enough violence in the world without purposely introducing it at such an early age. This series was read to my 9 year old daughter this school year, without any warning to parents or thoughts on how it may affect some children. This wouldn't even be read at the high school where I work.

This title has:

Too much violence
