The much-anticipated sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs hits theaters on September 27, 2013!
Flint and his friends learn the importance of community in this Level 2 Ready-to-Read story based on the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 movie.
As Flint Lockwood and the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs gang set out to clean up Swallow Falls, they realize things on the island aren’t exactly what they seem. But, as Flint tells us, with the help of true friends, any challenge can be overcome.
Flint Lockwood, a character created for the movie “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” introduces his helper friends before heading to Swallow Falls to check on his invention. His friends include Steve, his lab partner; Tim, his dad; Earl, a police officer; Brent, a strong man; Manny, a man of many talents; and Sam, a female weather scientist. Flint thinks he has met a new friend when he first meets Chester. The two inventers seem to have a lot in common. They had both been bullied as kids and they had both invented wedgie-proof underwear, but Chester does not believe in friendship. Chester wants to steal Flint’s invention, a food machine that makes living beings, such as Barry the strawberry and the Marshmallow Man. Flint and his friends travel to Swallow Falls and work together to save the machine from Chester’s clutches. The cartoonlike illustrations, colorful with lots of action, are based on the movie characters. Part of the “Ready-to-Read” series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.; Ages 4 to 6.
