The Kidsboro Books

Post

Have any of you read these? I really enjoyed them, even though they were obviously aimed at ages far younger than mine. I guess I just really like the concept of Kidsboro in general, or maybe it's the characters that I like. I've listened to the Kidsboro episodes a bunch of times, and they're still some of my favorites.

I thoroughly enjoyed them, but it's really up to how much you liked or disliked the Kidsboro episodes in the truth chronicles. I think those are a pretty good representation of what the books are like. The books simply go a bit deeper into the story, and expand upon some of the subplots that are already in the story. You get to know some of the characters on a more personal level, which is nice. You also find out a lot about Ryan's past that has never been brought up in the audio series.

It's a great book series. I read them when I was ten and fell in love with them. Even now, I like to pick them up and read through the good parts... like the ones with Ryan's dad. ;)

The episodes themselves? Oh man, I was so disapointed in them. I mean, the plot is so weird and random, nothing like the books... And where's Scott? And why in the world is there a stink bomb? That really stinks, literally. :geek:

So is there any place I can get them for cheap that you guys know of? Like all 4 for $20 USD? (and I'd be fine if they're cheaper)

I haven't read the Passages books, but from what I hear from other people the passages books are better.

If I could rate the series, I would do it like this.

1.Passages
2.The Imagination Station
3.Kidsboro

I haven't read the Original Series. Kidsboro is amazing, though it's not my favorite.

What do you think of Kidsboro? (The books.) Personally, I love it. I got all four books on my Kindle and I read them all in a day.

I have all four books in book form. They are amazing, though Passages are better.

I don't know. Passages seems a little to similar to Narnia. I love the writing style of it though! Paul McCusker did a great job with it. However, overall, I like Kidsboro better. I'm not meaning to insult Passages, I just think Kidsboro was more unique.

I love Kidsboro! I don't see why they don't do more of it! It's so creative and awesome. Someone needs to e-mail Paul and ask him to do it again!
