    "The Coraline series is definitely above average, but a younger reader also might find them to be a bit frightening from time to time. They definitely have some creepy aspects. If the young reader is able to handle these books, they will probably find them quite compelling though, as Coraline is a wonderfully written character, in my opinion."

    "This is a tale in classic Brothers Grimm fashion. The morals do not hold up to today's standards with death being dealt out to the wicked, and marriage being the reward for good girls. Maybe not the best book for children these days. Still, it is well written, and the illustrations are beautiful."

I really like that they have put the Cat in the Hat to good use and find many of these educational books to be quite clever. There are really not too many kids books available that focus on teaching map reading so I found this one to be particularly useful."
