This long series of American books is about 3 children who discover a magic world under the stairs of their home. Sounds schmaltzy but isn't. If you liked the famous five as a child, you probably will like this too, it's wholesome and upbeat. It persuaded my nearly-8-year-old son, who's bright but not mad about reading just now, to read it twice where he wouldn't get stuck into other highly regarded childrens books like Michael Morpurgo. Seems an odd partner for his other passions, ie Gameboy and Jackie Chan, but he's keen to read the next one so that's fine by me.
Quite large print and the odd mono illustration make it seem less daunting too.

My seven year old has nerly finished the last book in this set. It's taken her a while to get the reading bug but these books have worked their magic! The print is nice and large and the books are quite slim with excellent illustrations on the cover. I have quite a job to get her to stop reading at night and she's asked for more for her next birthday!
A very good buy.

Both of my sons have loved these books and read them avidly. Highly recommended, especially for boys of ages 7 to 8-ish depending on reading abilities. HTH!
