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.

Very inappropriate. Horrible language and refrences.

I was reading this book to my five year old boys, and I came across the word "pantywaste". Immediately, I put it down. I read it later myself, and there were many more inappropriate words and phrases. One of the illistrations shows the bad spider smoking a cigarette. I absolutely DO NOT recommend this book for children. I actually believe it should be pulled off of the shelves.

Not the usual Kirk

I am a huge fan of Kirk's work, but this book is a disaster. It's scary and completely inappropriate for small children. I consider myself to be fairly open-minded, but this is not acceptable for children.
