Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 November 2020
Sure, this 288 page book is very nicely presented. It is colourful and attractively decorated while it comes in a hard over. It’s also quite well written. In theory it make a nice gift. And i’m sure many children will be attracted to it and appreciate it as reading material.

But think about it. The author is making money on the back of the poor children depicted in this book!! And I actually know some of them. They obviously have issues. Yet these children are not inherently bad or worse than others. They are often scared, fragile, maybe traumatised. For example take Harry, “who never ever did his homework”. I know for a fact that, he actually couldn’t pay attention to his homework because his parents insisted him to play video games all day in order to beef up their online gamer profile. Quite tragic really.
So with each of these children there is a reason for their behaviour. Yet the authors provide a one dimensional portal of their symptoms without doing proper background checks or cross referencing with witnesses and family. I’m sure each of them could have grown up to be very normal and worthy member of society where it not for them being ridiculed in such a popular book! It must be devastating for these children given their age.
I hope the author will reflect on this and that for his next instalment of his money spinning series he will take a more measured but also more positive, constructive approach in order to provide some encouraging examples. Why can’t he write about; ‘The World’s Sweetest Children”, “The World’s Most Inspiring Teachers” or “The World’s Most Excellent Parents” ? - for the latter I’m happy to provide him with some material to prove that I do qualify.
