I have 2 boys who have very active imaginations and are always pretending to be ninjas or mutants and battling bad guys so I thought this would be just right for them, well for me to read to them. I was really surprised that my 6 year old read the first page without assistance and when I mentioned it to his teacher even the teacher was impressed that my boy was that eager to read the book.

I have managed to read this book in about ten to fifteen minutes (was reading to myself) so short enough not to be boring, 60 pages that included diagrams and comic strips of the battles. I did find the story a bit short but then when your target audience is a bit younger (well a lot younger) then the shorter the better.

I know my boys will love the series just due to the battles and the subject matter so I will be trying to get the whole set. Seeing that I'm not a young boy the books don't appeal to me as much but I would read it to my sons and probably hear about the pretend battles for ages afterwards.

I would recommend the books to anyone who wants to encourage their kids to read or to get an interest in reading as you can have some discussions about what you read and it doesn't always have to be serious discussions.

I have given a low personal choice score as I would only read this book again if one of my boys asked for it and with my luck that means I will be reading it about a million times.

This is the 16th book in the Boy vs Beast series but only the 4th book that involves mega-mutants. Each book is basically just one big epic battle. Now this could get extremely repetitive and boring but each new mutant that they take on has their own attributes and fighting styles which keep Border Captain, Kai Masters, and his team on their toes and there's plenty of cool new weapons and battle gear as well.

Each book starts off with a prologue that explains how Earth and Beastium are separated and how it's the job of the Border Guard to protect Earth from the mutants by battling them, learning about them and gaining new upgrades and battle gear. It's a fairly short book (61 pages) and there are no dull moments. It's an epic battle that's for sure and what little boy doesn't love monsters, fighting and impressive gadgets - my son loved it! There are a few black and white illustrations throughout and a fun graphic style section that depicts some of the battle in more detail. It would also be a great book for encouraging independent reading in children 6+.

I think these books are reasonably priced for what you get and we'll definitely be reading this one over and over again.
