Jack Stalwart is fun!

I am six. I like the books because there is a lot of action. I like Jack because he is cool and confident. It makes me want to read more.

A little too scary for my kids

We started this series with my 6 and 8 year olds after finishing The Magic Treehouse books, based on the description and age appropriateness recommendation. The first book in the series was as expected...adventure, excitement, suspense and a bit of danger. The kids liked it and were eager for more. The second book got to be a bit too much dangerfor my 6 year old especially. The bad guys are pirates who will kill anyone who threatens them or is not useful. We decided to stop reading after Jack was violently captured, imprisoned, and facing a grisly end. My kids are probably more sensitive than many, but it was too much... My 8 year old wasn’t quite as alarmed but it was even still tough for her. I’d say 8 at the youngest based on book 2.
