I have to say that this is the sort of book I turn my nose up at. My nearly 7 year old daughter had some friends reading the series at school. From what she related to me it seems that the book is full of "funniness" - the kind that is right up elementary school boy alleys. For example sticking carrots up ones nose and then later eating them. We had a great discussion about how these sorts of books are good "palette cleansers" of sorts. Something fun and frivolous between more engaging books. Books that can make your mom squirm just knowing you have it under your covers with a flashlight at night! I love playing into the fact that she think I consider this completely taboo and she feels she is getting away with something great. No amazing piece of literature - but a good fun read.

Kid approved!
