A review is one person's opinion. TV Tropes doesn't have an opinion. The person who signed the review does.

Childish? Yes. A Great Read? Yes.
As a person who read The Secrets Of Droon far after she was the target age, I can attest that the series is entertaining to just about anyone.

The books have flaws. They're quite predictable, and it's hard to keep any sort of suspense up within the story. Abbott abuses the onomatopoeia and the exclamation point, as well as italics for emphasis. Sometimes your poor, abused Willing Suspension Of Disbelief gets stretched too thin with all the A Wizard Did It-esque explanations.

And you know what?

It really doesn't matter.

The books are some of the most entertaining things I have ever read. Despite all its flaws, the wacky plots, fun pace, and characters that are just realistic enough for you to feel for them, albeit being overdramatic, will keep you reading throughout every book.

And for those who absolutely can't stand the simple, after book 15 or so, the series gets noticeably deeper. With plot twists that will actually make you think "I wasn't expecting that!", and loads of character development, it can appeal more to the mature reader.

All in all, I would strongly recommend the series to anyone who likes an entertaining read.
