5.0 out of 5 stars Willard Price Adventure Series 5 Feb 2009
By A. J WILSON - Published on Amazon.com
I grew up with these books and am delighted to find my 10 and 8 year old enjoying them just as much....they are indeed a little dated now but the guy's skill in producing ripping yarns, one after another, still to me is unbeatable. With regard to "political correctness" it's portrayed 2 ways - the bad guy showing predjudice (and we are left in no doubt about who the bad guys are and how wrong they are for it). The other way is milder, in that maybe the odd remark does not gel - perhaps purely because it's written 40+ years ago or maybe some occasional remarks seem condescending, but I have found them a good sounding point to initiate discussion with my children. It's a win-win. (Quite apart from the fact that my 8 year old scientist/engineer does not see any value in reading stories at all, these were the only ones to have grabbed and kept his attention)

My 10 year old grandson has been enjoying Willard Price books for at least a year and I expect he'll continue to enjoy his books for at least a couple of more years.
