Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids who have been teased about their looks will cheer for the revenge Nicholas Bell imposes on his classmates. Vengeance may not seem like an appropriate theme for children, but kids will love the consequences exacted by Mr. Piddlesticks. This bit of fluff quickly entertains and is just as quickly forgotten.

Kids are captivated by this harmless tale of good and evil, and don't be too surprised to find your child reading THE AMAZING FRECKTACLE by flashlight after lights-out.

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.
