About the Author
Top customer reviews
My least favorite of the 6 books was The Killer Bear because the book was actually about being "saved" and only the last 2 short chapters was about the bear. All of the rest of the books were just fantastic! And the Killer Bear book wasn't bad either.
One other potential negative I saw was that in one of the books, the kids get into a physical fight, and the author does not seem to think this is a bad thing. It was a different time.
The books talk a lot about God / Jesus / The Bible, and bring it up on numerous occasions. The kids go to church and Sunday school and it says a few times how silly it is to think you are a sissy for going to church (which some kids will make you feel like), and sends the message that you will be good and happy being a Christian, and sad or bad if you're not.
This author really understands kids, or boys. It shows through clearly, in the thoughts the main character has, and the things the kids plan for fun.
The main character boy has a tiny tiny interest in girls (although I'm sure he would not want to admit it) but the author shows this by saying he wants to kill a spider or something for a girl with nice curls. He's always talking about killing a spider for a girl it's so cute. But then, like I said, the author always gives a twist, so just you wait when he finally sees a spider next to the girl with nice curls! It's so realistic.
I really can't say enough good things about these books.
Personally, I am Catholic, so the only thing I'm not crazy about is that they are CLEARLY protestant and constantly talking about getting people "saved".
They are always going on fun and different adventures so it's not boring. These kids are so much fun to hang out with. I'll probably start book 7 tomorrow :D I can't wait for my kids to read these.
