When appearing on the Michael Medved radio show to discuss Why Boys Fail I encouraged parents to let boys read what they want to read. I listed the Captain Underpants series as an example of books that boys, not teachers, may love.

One alert listener (and book importer) urged me to take a look at the Horrible series of books -- British humor aimed at the level of boys.

The opinions expressed in Why Boys Fail are strictly those of the author(s) and do not reflect the opinions or endorsement of Editorial Projects in Education, or any of its publications.
