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.

Amazing book

The book opens with "There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it." I feel like I can drop the mic now, but if you're still not convinced I will say this book is interesting, exciting, well-written, refreshing, unique, clever and a tad scary at times. Possibly one of the best children's books of all time, even.
