Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This series installment has wildly imaginative fun throughout, friendships forged, puzzles solved, bullies foiled, and plots twisted in a frenzied (but strategic) race for the best prize ever. Inspired rather than intimidated by Roald Dahl's classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Mr. Lemoncello and the Titanium Ticket takes the contest and factory tour to entirely new places, and it's a fun, satisfying, brain-teasing ride.

"'Are you really certain you wish to go through with this, sir?' said Dr. Zinchenko. 'The titanium ticket seems so dramatic. So Willy Wonka-ish. So Ready Player One.'

"'As it should, Yanina. Are our Ohio friends in the air?'

"'Yes, sir. The banana jet left Alexandriaville an hour ago. Kyle, Akimi, Andrew and Haley are on their 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.
