Grade 3-5?Thinly veiled Sunday school lessons, complete with scripture verses, didacticism, and a proselytizing style. In Mystery, Dunkum's basketball, signed by Christian ballplayer David Robinson, disappears. Through a series of puzzles and codes, Dunkum, who attends church alone because his parents aren't Christian, finds his ball. Jason, the main character in No Grown-ups, has Attention Deficit Disorder and breaks his parents' house rules while they are away for the weekend. While both titles are poorly written and shallow in plot and characterization, No Grown-Ups is also inaccurate in presentation. Medicating ADD children is highly controversial and there is no scientific proof that chocolate and sugar make them hyperactive. It is a disservice to these youngsters to perpetuate such misconceptions. Unnecessary purchases.?Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA

Another fun story in the series. All of these are safe, this one is only slightly scary (snow monster dream) if a child is sensitive.
Scripture was on point - obeying the father and mother for it is right in the Lord's eyes. Jason learns the hard way why the rules are there, why he has to take his medication and stay away from candy - even though it was tempting. He learned the "hard way" why he has too do those things and felt a conviction for not doing those things.
