A Great Read
While this book is childish it is very entertaining. It’s very different from the movie but just as easy to get lost in as the movie.
Very funny and cute!
I watched the movies 1, 2 & 3 before I read the book. Awesome! Way better. Good for kids who get bullied to realize that there’s a ‘hard way of becoming a hero’, and just very funny and cute for all ages
Good Characters and Story, but Too Gorey
The stories in these books are fun and original. The characters are hilarious, albeit colored with ‘boy’ humor. But the descriptions are too explicit for children. They have a horror-movie-like quality. They gave my daughter nightmares. I have to skip the descriptions so she can enjoy the story.
