I have not read a page of these books before. Even though we have them lying around the house in the past few months, I still couldn't find the time (or motivation) to pick one up. I figured it isn't necessary for me to be familiar with them since the boys can easily discuss with E. I have enough on my plate.
You see, without the dad, I would never have come across this series to even introduce to the boy. This Groo Maiden is really funny but somehow I find the content a tad unsuitable for my innocent boy. Especially with the R(A) illustrations that one can find on almost every page! He even pointed out the revealing outfits of the characters sometime.
While waiting at the OB clinic with me one afternoon last week, M was so engrossed reading his comic that he didn't realize we were surrounded by people. Suddenly, he commented loudly 'Mummy look at this! I can see her boobs and butt in this dress! Haha!'
A few parents at the waiting area looked up from their magazines and glanced over at us. The woman next to him even peeped curiously into his book. Oops.
