Not as good as the original (none of the three sequels is), but still worth reading. Brinley fleshed out the characters a bit more than he did in The Big Kerplop, while still making them mostly consistent with their introductory selves from the first book. His female characters seem awfully silly, which I found annoying. I wish he had sent Daphne Muldoon and a friend (perhaps Melissa Plunkett could have been persuaded to dump Stony Martin in favor of Charlie, the narrator?) along instead of the girls he did send. Maybe it's just the difference between my 10-year-old self, when I first devoured the original, and my fifty-something self, but this book just didn't seem to have quite as much magic as the original. Even so, it's worth reading, and, like The Big Kerplop, I give it a thumbs-up.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
