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.

One of the most suspenseful and funniest books I have ever read!

A funny book that everybody should read! It is told in two points of views, so you don't have to wonder what the story would be if it was told if it was another person (or am I the only one who thinks that?). It is perfect conclusion and you should buy it for your young magician! ;)

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
