Kids say (3):

These sweet stories bring to life a nondescript book character in gentle adventures of discovery and self-awareness that will resonate with young kids. Those who haven't heard Dragon's stories beforehand will have no trouble slipping right into his world with the show's combination of narration and character dialogue, much of which replicates the books word for word. If you have read Pilkey's books to your preschoolers, more the better, though depending on their retention of story details, they may notice some components changed for the screen.

Dragon's charming stop-motion animation style gives the characters a playful nature that complements the show's simple stories and patient pace. What's more, each episode is divided by chapters much like the books are, giving each segment a clear theme that makes it easy for kids to follow and creating even more consistency between Dragon's book adventures and those onscreen, perhaps encouraging kids to enjoy both equally.
