Phineas And Ferb: Phuntastic Box Set

We received a review copy of the Phineas and Ferb Phuntastic Box set from Disney Publishing and I knew that my eight year-old son would be perfect for this review. It was his suggestion to record a video:

The three books are:
  • Speed Demons
  • Runaway Hit, and 
  • Wild Surprise
He really enjoyed them (we love the show) and felt that kids between the ages of five to eight would love reading them. His two complaints were that there was not any laughter (like a laugh track) and that there was too much narration. Since the books are based on actual episodes, they should be familiar.

When I looked through the books, they seemed to be well-written and faithful to the shows. They are considered chapter books and I would place them on second and third grade levels. This is a great series for reticent readers, especially for boys that love the show but might not be into reading. There are plenty of black and white images from the shows, with at least one image per page.

Hey. Where's Perry?
