Rated 5 out of 5 by from Girls love this Bought the book on a whim for my daughters. They loved it so much I had to buy the rest of the series. They are eagerly waiting to find out what happens in #7. Great characters and they love the humour. It’s a good alternative to Captain Underpants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My kid loves this! My kids have loved Captain Underpants and Dog Man, so this is our next series. My little one was convinced she would NOT like this based on the cover (no sparkles) but she loves the humour and is now totally engaged. And now we get a break from endless reads of the fairy books! :) #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FUN & Promotes Reading!!! This book series has become our nephews favorite book series at the moment. Easy to read and he enjoys the comic book look and funny jokes. He doesn't like to read and this gets him to read out loud because he wants me to hear how funny the characters are! 9 years old and loves this FUN series! Brings on great laughter!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My son loves it! My son who is five years old loves this book he's read it to himself dozens of times. He loves the animals and the age appropriate humor in it. As others have said there aren't a lot of words per page, and reads more like a comic - so it's great for early readers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved by my 8 year old son. My 8 year old loves this. He begged for it at the book fair, and I bought it - as always encouraging the young one to read. Well, he adored it. He's read it twice now. We've bought number 2 and 3...and are waiting for the release of #4.
