I have a 6-yr old who read "Miss Mary is Scary" in one week. She picked it out from a Scholastic book flyer and could not put the book down. From the introduction on the very 1st page, the author's silly writing really got her laughing and grabbed her attention. My daughter knows that the silly content of these books is just all in fun; The storyline can be RIDICULOUS at times and what is depicted in the story is purely imaginary. Some of it may be deemed inappropriate content since it can be off the wall, but overall the books are captivating for little kids and an easy read. It is an early-read chapter book, and the chapters are short. A great way to improve their reading and at a great price available only on Amazon. (I also checked Borders and B&N but they were selling the set at the full-listed price of $84.) If you are not sure about the content, take a sneak peek inside the books. Amazon offers this feature on some books where you can read a couple pages for a preview of the storyline and author's writing style.

Received one of these ("Ms. Todd Is Odd", #12 in the series) as a gift for my 7yo son, who tore through it one evening. He found it not very interesting, so I decided to read it to see if I could engage him further. I was disappointed in how crass and mean-spirited the story and specifically the protagonist is, and decided the less attention paid to this book, the better. (I binned it.)

The word "hate"--which in our family we don't ban, but we try to use only for extremely bad experiences or situations, and never directly towards people--is probably the most common single word in the book. "I hate school." "I hate substitute teachers." "If these guys weren't my friends I would hate them." "I hate people who..." "Dear Andrea, I'm sorry I hate you."

The second most common word might be "dumb". "She is the dumbest teacher in the history of the world." "That's corporation, dumbhead." "...that dumb story."

Lastly, the "plot" revolves around an unexpected substitute teacher, and the kids' investigation amounts to little more than speculation that the sub murdered (yes, murdered) the regular teacher. But when the regular teacher re-appears, they conclude that she in fact murdered the sub.

Although there are flashes of wit, none of the above is delivered ironically, nor is there any sort of come-uppance for the protagonist with the terrible attitude and questionable language.

Long story short, not the kind of nonsense I want my 7yo to read.

My 7 year old son (Grade 2) told me about this series of books. His teacher had been reading them to the class and he would always come home excited when one concluded and the next began. I decided to check them out at the library just to see what they were about and was actually a bit surprised that the teacher would be reading them to the class. I would place them in a grey area between appropriate and inappropriate. The main character is far from a role model- the books start out with "My name is A. J. and I hate school." and then he continues to talk about how he hates an annoying girl named Andrea.

I believe the appeal of these books in the eyes of the young reader is the utter shock value of the content. They are not a typical children's book and that in part with the fact that they are written from the perspective of a 2nd grader is what gets their attention and keeps it. To a kid they are the real thing. The author is quite clever. The name of the school is Ell Mentry School for example, the titles are brilliant and truthfully the books are quite hilarious (even for an adult), if you are open minded and can get beyond the words or content that would normally be taboo in a children's book!

It was a difficult decision to make whether or not to peruse these books for my son. When he borrowed one from the library and started reading it out loud to us- I had to stop him from reading the correct words in front of his 4 year old brother, who after listening, decided that he hated school too (eek- and he's only preschool- lol- thankfully it was a short phase) We replaced "hate" with "like" (and believe me the word is used a lot!) After a day or two we just stopped letting him read them aloud period as much of the content was inappropriate for a preschooler anyway.

I am a second grade teacher and my son is currently in second grade. I have been trying to get my son to read independently. He finally has found some books that are fun and easy to read. He has asked for the whole set for his birthday because they are holding his interest. They are funny and if you have a child that does not enjoy reading these books may help. I just want my son and students to like reading. I want them to pick up a book because they want to not because it is homework. These are great books! When my son brings these books to school, the other children want to read the books with my son. They are entertaining. I finally see my son reading on his own without me telling him to read!

My son started reading these in his 1st grade class, and he came home from school and told me all about them. So I went to our local library they didn't have any in stock nor did the others in our county. And he asked for 1 or 2 for christmas, and I noticed they had a whole set! I can't wait to see his face on Christmas when he sees these. A good buy your kids will love these books.
