Is It Any Good?

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

Nearly every kid likes to play with boxes at some time, and this lively adventure captures the joy of letting your imagination run wild. In Roar of the Beast, artist and writer Chad Sell also shows what happens when the scaring gets a little too intense and kids begin to take the hijinks too seriously. The book also touches on some serious topics, such as gender issues, depression, and bullying. But there's plenty of action and good-natured fun as the kids work together to celebrate Halloween in their own special ways. There's also plenty of charm to go around, and most readers will be eager for the next book in the series.

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.
