I found this book to be inappropriate for my child. I read it aloud to him and was surprised with how rude/mean/disrespectful the kids in the book are and how aloof/unhelpful adults are portrayed. There is consistent, unchecked name calling and the kids hit each other (even teachers!) and say/do mean things to each other. I bought the three book set and will not be reading the second and third book to my child. It’s more than silly and zany, it crosses boundaries and encourages unkindness.
