Also are they really "schooly"? I have tried to stay away from book that are all about school, since she doesn't go (like Junie B. Jones, all of those seem to be about what hapens at school)
Also, she got a Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew book. I saw that these are re-releases of the Nancy Drew Notebook books. Has anyone read these? Are the books redone (updated), or basically just reprinted with new covers and titles? I have never read Nancy Drew books (don't know why, I read everything else). Are they also considered twaddle? Are they any good?
(I know I could read her book upstairs in about an hour, I just want other opinions)

Also, they are not schooly at all. They typically take place when the girls are on school vacation, so no school! Now, as far as the Nancy Drew. There are several versions now. The Clue Crew are written at an easier level. The originals are still the same. I "think" that the Notebooks and the Clue Crew are different. It seems that the Clue Crew are the simplest, then the Notebooks, then the originals.
Recently my dd has been into "graphic novels." There are Nancy Drew ones too! I know that these are "pure candy reading" however DD reads so much that something fun is great:lol:. I like to have her read a variety of books, whatever she is interested in.
