My boys (aged 5 and 7) love Zac Power. This is the third collection I've bought and it didn't disappoint. In fact, I think there are more sound effects with this collection that ever before - which certainly ads another level.
While I am starting to find the plot lines a little samey, and am getting annoyed about the fact that that the evil B.I.G. foundation seems to be staffed entirely by bad girl spies (grr feminism outrage), the boys completely love them.
The gadgets are fantastically cool, as is the level of authority with which Zac Power is allowed to operate. The idea that a 12 year old can drive a fighter jet / power boat / submarine / space rocket ON HIS OWN and SAVE THE WORLD is exactly what any 7 yr old boy wants to hear about.
I love the fact that no matter how cool you are, you still have to come back home and clean your bedroom. But that's the mum in me.... no bad words, mild peril and the books are available in our local library.
