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.

Rubbish...and not at all funny

I wish I could say the comical value made up for the stupid amount of violence but sadly it did not! Ive not read the book so unsure if the “cuss” replacement for what would be swear words is in that but that alone with the mention of death/dying/suicide every 2 minutes is enough to make me write this review and wish I’d read all these before letting my 4 year old watch it!
