    "This book is absolutely delightful, whimsical and wonderful. It has aged well too, as nothing about it feels dated or irrelevant. This is an excellent choice for young readers, one that includes many life lessons and skills, like forethought, motivation, decision-making, and reasoning. "

    "Classic, timeless books of this era. I recommend every kid and adult reads this series at least once in their lifetime. JK is going to be remembered through history for writing these, I think. Easy enough for young adults to read, with enough for adults to take away a magical experience. "

    "Around when I was in third grade and all the other kids were reading these books, I was very hesitant to read these books and didn't want anything to do with them. About four years later I saw the first trailer for the Captain Underpants movie and didn't think it would really be worth seeing. A few months later I started watching the trailer nonstop and searched YouTube for every possible scene in the movie. A couple of days later I decided that before I saw the movie itself that I should read as many of the books I could so that I wouldn't have to handle the wait much longer. Ten minutes later I finished the first epic novel. I bet you're wondering why my opinion on these novels changed so suddenly. You see, once I saw a trailer for the movie saying that the critics thought it was heartwarming, far more emotional then you'd ever believe, and about the power of friendship and imagination, I immediately fell in love with it. I became absolutely hypnotized by every trailer I saw on TV just like how Mr. Krupp became hypnotized by George's and Harold's ring. I then saw that it got 85% by Rotten Tomatoes and was astonished. The main reason why I fell in love with this franchise in the first place was because I thought it could possibly teach me something about friendship and what it means to truly have a best friend at your side at all times, since I didn't currently have a best friend at my side at all times like everyone else in school did."
