After listening to the Kidsboro three-part audio album, I just had to buy the first book! First of all I'd like to say that it had many parts in it that were hilarious! Especially the parts with a boy named Scott who wanted to be a detective (Scott wasn't in the Kidsboro audio episodes). If you have listened to the Kidsboro audio episodes then when you first start reading this book it will begin the same as in the audio episodes but then as you continue reading it you realize that actually it's a very different story with practically the same start. It did mention: Church, The Ten Commandments, and having Morals, Although these words: Bible, Jesus, and God were not actually mentioned in the book you could tell it was what was behind the story although the lessons and morals were not declared as loud and clear as in the Kidsboro audio episodes. as for the language in this book: the worse that was ever uttered would have been: Jerk, Quack, and Goofy. this book had great moments in it, Both emotional and funny, You care about the characters and wonder how it's going to turn out and the "Who did it? and Why?" Goes around in your head throughout the book. When the book ends although everything is going to be fine they still leave something unresolved... I guess that's so you will read the next book. the book was as I recall: 113 pages long. If you have listened to any Adventures in Odyssey or the Kidsboro Episodes you will have a much better idea of what the characters in the book are like. All in all, this book was pretty good.Read more ›

My 9-year old son says 4 1/2 stars ... June 15 2008

Format: Paperback
... and here were his thoughts: "It was a cool book. The challenges the kids ran into trying to create their own town were really interesting. It was fun to try and figure out the mysteries in it, and how the story would turn out."

As his Dad, I enjoyed reading this book together as well. It lays out real-world consequences of the choices we make in a way that tweens can understand and appreciate. We're looking forward to reading the second, thrid and fourth ones in the series.

Not bad. I only read it because I LOVE Adventures in Odyssey. It isn't anything like the first kidsboro episode from AIO but it's still really good. I'd recommend it for 7-12 year old kids
I'd recommend Adventures in Odyssey for ages 6-17. THEY ARE REALLY GOOD! :)
