    "Is it possible to laugh too hard? It might be! I burst into tears while reading The Adventures of Captain Underpants, it's too funny not to. I love this unlikely hero that sports his famous underwear while fighting crime. Children and adults both will love this book as much as I do."

    "I grew up reading the Little House book series. I devoured every book as a child over and over and still have the original books from my childhood. I would immerse myself into the stories and found they really got my imagination going wild. They helped me hone my coping and empathy skills as a child, because the first person narrative is so well written, you feel you are part of the story. I truly felt each and every tragedy and triumph of the Ingalls family. I purchased this particular set as Salvation Army Angel Tree gift to offer a new generation the magical world of Laura Ingalls."
