Overview

How strange to be off the Mound again, in a world without boundaries!

After living on the Fog Mound for quite some time, Thelonious Chipmunk and his friends are ready to continue their travels. There are still old questions to be answered and new places to be explored. So, with the addition of new friends Bill the Human and Cluid Chipmunk, the animals sail off down the river in a specially designed boat.

At the City of Ruins they find the dangerous ratminks threatening to take over the region and maybe even the whole planet! Could this be a repeat of the events that brought about the end of the Human Occupation? How can one small group of talking animals help? Why is Bill so anxious to get to the mysterious island of Faradawn? And will Olive find her lost sister, Ruby?

As in Travels of Thelonious, the intrepid chipmunk pursues his personal quest to uncover the differences between legend and history. And to answer the most troubling question of all — what happened to the humans?

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Continuing in alternate chapters of illustrated prose and comics-style graphics, the second episode of this post-apocalypse tale takes several talking animal friends and Bill, the enigmatic miniature human, back to the Untamed Forest and the City of Ruins, and then on to a remote island. There, after freeing an imprisoned population of birds and helping to repel an invasion of malign crabs, friendly saltwater crocodiles rescue them from a gigantic robot. Retracing the previous outing's route pads rather than advances the plot, but readers will nonetheless be drawn by the tale's mix of narrow squeaks and set-piece celebrations, as well as the unusual mixed format. The ominous closing suggestion that some creatures are beginning to repeat the technological mistakes that caused the (near) extinction of the human race sets the stage for sequels. (Fantasy. 9-11)

My 11 year old loved the first book 'Adventures of Thelonious' so I read it to my 5 year old. He, too, loved the story. We just finished the 2nd book in 2 days. Fun, easy read. I am going to give the series to my nephews!
