Mighty Reader and the Reading Riddle

We rated this book:


Mighty Reader and the Reading Riddle reminded me of a show on PBS, Super Why, because in both the book and the show the characters deal with reading and having to solve a mystery or problem that usually goes along with a story in a book.

In Mighty Reader, a boy (a dog) is looking for a fun book to read when Mighty Reader hears him and suggests a good one that takes him into an imaginary world where he needs to save Merlin the wizard from a three-headed dragon who has taken all of Merlin’s books away. There is a sword in a bone that the boy must figure out how to pull out to beat the dragon and save Merlin!

I enjoyed Mighty Reader overall, but there were parts of it that confused me and I had to ask for someone to explain, part at the beginning of the book, the middle, and the end. The ending is good because there’s a twist that you won’t see coming. I think that if there were some different words put in the story to replace others then it might make more sense overall and be understandable for all ages.
