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.

What Happened?

The last book in this series, while trying to be perfect for all ages made itself unreadable for all ages. How they end up SAVING the world is utterly ridiculous, only a small child would find it entertaining, but at the same time the relationships and violence would make that child uneasy throughout most of the book. It was like he gave up on writing WELL.
not rated for age

Great Book!!! So Glad there is going the be a fourth book!

This was a great book. It does have some language not appropriate for young child, but is a awesome, fast paced joy ride of a book. It's a Re-Read over and over again book. Max is great yet again. Iggy and Max are my favorite characters.
