Our oldest found this enjoyable. It is short and to the point.
The short paragraphs are fun to read.
Some of the mistakes in the copy are tricky to find while others are obvious. A mix of easy and hard.
We like Editor in Chief.

We used this series this year and had a lot of fun with it! Althought I have 4th & 7th graders, we used the version for older kids (book B1 & B2). Each page has a paragraph which could be an informative piece, or a letter, etc. It always has an interesting picture and caption too. The kids have to find errors in the piece and the caption. They write them below on blanks provided (or on paper if you want to sell/reuse it). They did these independently, about 2x/wk. Then we would check them together. Although there were some things they didn't get (especially the younger child), we reviewed them and really learned a lot while doing it! I didn't use these for grades, just for fun. They enjoyed reading them aloud and trying to correct the errors. These are a little pricey for the size, but I thought they were worth it.
