I found a misplaced copy of this book while grocery shopping right around the time I was finishing up the 2nd Kane Chronicles book with my sons(7 and 9)....I was beyond excited...but put it down after a quick scan through the pages deciding I would probably be buying it for myself and wasn't sure if my sons would be interested. I obsessed over this book for 2 days and ran back to the store and bought it(sorry Amazon...I was too impatient for shipping) My sons LOVE the Survival Guide, it gave us a chance to discuss the illustrations of the characters compared to what we imagined in our minds. And it is also nice to see how much they remember from the books(they were paying attention, not just dragging out bedtime..YAY!). They look through this book everyday. I just started reading the Percy Jackson series to them(while we patiently wait for the 3rd Kane Chronicles book), and they are using the Kane Chronicles Survival Guide to compare characters from the two series if they sound even the slightest bit similar. I will be ordering the survival guide for Percy Jackson as well.
