I thought 1 was fun and I was very pleased for all the kids (young and otherwise) who ate these up. But I was sorry I spent the time to read 2 and I doubt I'll be reading any more of them. Too much frosting for me. Perhaps the later books are meatier but I'm unwilling to invest the time to find out.
