Fun Activity Book!

This book is a HUGE hit in my household. My boys love The Captain Underpants series of books, so this book, which allows them to color stickers and create their own flip-o-rama, is an exciting addition to our growing collection. This book allows children to color...

Hilarious and colorful!

Incredible addition to this series!

So, I'm the girl who fell for Noah in 'Pushing the Limits', then I thought no one could beat my adoration for Ryan in 'Dare You To', and then came Isaiah. I liked Isaiah in the first two books, but holy cow, I LOVE him now. As I...

Wonderful life lesson!

First of all the illustrations are absolutely beautiful! It was so much fun looking at all the pictures with my children and finding objects with each reading. The story itself is a wonderful lesson. King Normous decides he wants to rule the entire world and...

Just the cover of this book takes me back to my childhood. I had a large array of Little Golden Books, which I now have in my home library, so this book immediately had me excited. And inside it did not disappoint! With fun illustrations...

Better than the first!

I wasn't a huge fan of the first book. I enjoyed it alright, but I thought I'd go ahead and give the second book a chance. I actually liked it better than the first. I really enjoyed reading how Adam goes to a regular camp and tries...

Creeptastic!

Ok. I read the first book and was hooked at the beginning, but then was a bit disappointed further through the book. However, I decided to give the second book a chance and I'm glad I did. I'm not quite sure what it is about this series, but...
