Kids say (1 ):

Tony Abbott's Droon series includes many elements of fantasy fiction that are super familiar to older kids and grown-ups, but to 7- and 8-year-old readers, these devices are fresh and inventive. These tidy, magical early chapter books make a terrific introduction to fantasy fiction for kids who love the genre but aren't old enough to read Tolkien or Harry Potter.

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.
