Top critical review
8 January 2019
My 9 year old boys are huge fans of Captain Underpants. While its a delight to see them read books, I do wish they had better choice :(. I could not go beyond two pages of the book. And as someone who is a voracious reader, I find it a bit sad that kids today prefer books like these.
Maybe the new generation has a different sense of humour and they don't love the world of Magic Faraway Tree or wait in the lines for the new releases of Harry Potter. Or love to read about the feasts at Malory Towers or drink butter beer with Fatty and his friends.
I am at a loss on how to make them steer towards good books!
