    I think what some reviewers forget is this book is for kids, not adults. Kids have the ability to accept some of the story lines without question. Yes, kids can build a huge base in the middle of a forest (also, if you read book 2 - you will learn how it gets built).

    I also find it funny that we blame the author for editorial mistakes.

    This book - and the rest of the series - is great for kids. Nice to have non-violent books for kids to read.

    Consider 1 star a gift

    Do not believe the other reviews! I bought this book for my kid (11yo) on a recommendation from a friend and my conclusion is that the author is only semi-literate. The book is littered with grammatical errors. His writing is atrocious and he never met a comma he wouldn't splice. He hasn't the faintest idea how to use dialogue. On page 118, he actually put a comma directly in front of a question mark! There is a handicapped character in a wheelchair that he calls "Roller." How offensive! Worst of all, the major conflict occurs when an old man kidnaps a young girl and tortures her! How can he advertise his book as having no curse words or violence, but does include a serious felony that no one gets punished for? I understand the need to suspend disbelief, but there is a line. But wait, there's more. In one scene, a child jumps off a fourth floor ledge lands on a mattress and is unharmed--in which universe does Kid Combat live? Are the laws of gravity different there? In another scene, the female character is gone for twelve hours and her parents don't notice. Really? Furthermore, the kids' base, The Playground, is an underground complex filled with computer labs, science labs, and meeting rooms. How would children pay for this or build it? The only conclusion is that SOCKs gets federal funding. The book shows that the author made a valiant effort to write a good children's book, but he simply failed. The worst parts of the book--the writing, the story, the errors--are just too numerous and too overpowering. The best part of the book is that it ended. Actually, that is not true. The best part of the book is going through it with my family--wife and kid--with a red pen and fixing all the errors. Because of this, my kid's writing has improved. Way to go, Chris!
