This is a wonderful series of books! My children were engaged throughout the reading of each book. We loved the colorful illustrations that each book had to offer. I as a mom enjoyed that the books provided entertainment, while providing a life lesson for my children. That fact alone makes this an important series to read! We also loved that the book is full of imagination and even after we read the books we could imagine our own adventures! We LOVED the entire series… we could not pick a favorite!
