Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Google ads adorn the site, and that there are links to online bookstores. Some fan fiction involves animal cruelty.
Is It Any Good?
On the site, users can read news about the book series, see and submit fan artwork, and listen to a fan podcast. There are animated short cartoons featuring the twisted tweens, and kids can also write and submit their own fan fiction. Some of these are disturbing, featuring animal cruelty and other topics that should have been consigned to the bit bucket when submitted. Younger kids should avoid this whole section.
That said, the site offers one totally cool game. "Mansion Mayhem" is addictive, creative, and complex. Players can create their own 13-floor mansion complete with clever traps and tricks placed to foil would-be intruders.
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.
