Is It Any Good?

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

Kids will love reading these stories. They're a zany, fast-paced introduction to chapter books, and the short sentences are written in the casual way that most kids talk to each other. There's just enough suspense to the stories in The Zack Files books to keep things interesting, but nothing so complex that it will frustrate a beginning reader. The vocabulary isn't challenging and the plots are very simple, so slightly more advanced readers will zip through these books but will likely still enjoy them.

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.
