My daughter loves these books. They are basically written on a third grade level, but my daughter, whose reading level is far above grade level, still enjoys reading them for fun. They keep her interested, and I continue to buy the next book in the series for her as they are released. My younger daughter, who is in 2nd grade, has just started the series and she enjoys them as well. The first book was purchased for my older daughter by her teacher. The books are well written, with proper syntax and grammar, but also written in a "child's voice". If your child likes fantasy and magic, these are great books!
