So we got about 20 to 30 Scoody Doo books from a cousin. Matthew likes them - when we first got them he seemed a little tentative since they could be slightly scary - but we took a break from them for a couple weeks and now he seems to be into it. For me they are somewhat interesting, with the mystery and all. Right now we are in the middle of the TV Monster one.
As for Amelia Badelia -- blah! This is the 2nd one -- forgot what the first was about but this one is about a Halloween party. Honestly it's just very stupid -- I guess that half the point - we'll see if Matthew asks for it again... giving it a D.
