We began reading these books when Katie was just beginning school. We read them aloud, in the family room all together and i still remember the wide eyed looks of wonder that Katie and Riley would have. It was simply magical. And although there was a lot of darkness throughout the series, i still think it was wonderfully imaginative creation and i'm so happy it was a part of my children's childhood.
You must read Katie's blog post all about going to the midnight premier with her friends...all dressed up...so much fun!
