THE ICY HAND VOLUME 2 :THE SECOND ADVENTURE IN STANLEY BUGGLE’S SAGA

Even more wicked and weird than the first! Stanley is looking forward to a relaxing winter. After all, nothing could have been weirder than the werewolf curse and plotting pirates he had to face the summer before! Or at least that’s what Stanley thinks; but he has a lot to learn about Cramdon Rock, especially after accidentally bringing some dead pirates back to life—ones that make the previous pirates he faced look like cuddly puppy dogs and ones that are trudging across the arctic determined to fi nd a magical medallion in Stanley’s house. The only person who can save him is his dead great-uncle Bartholomew, which is a little tricky considering he’s…well, dead. Oh, and did we mention headless? With the help of a talking stuffed fish and a new friend named Daisy, Stanley sets out to fi nd his great-uncle’s head, stop the pirates, and win over some new readers in this second funny and spooky installment of a thrilling new series.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Stanley Buggles is the young heir to Candlestick Hall, located on the remote island of Crampton Rock. Having just arrived for his winter visit, young Stanley immediately discovers from Mr. Pike, the dead talking fish, that he and his family's legacy are in grave and imminent danger—again. This time, apparently, it is the Stormbringers that are after a treasure of great importance, the well hidden and very powerful Ibis. Before Stanley can begin to plan his strategy against this unpredictable force from the nether world, he must find the head of his dead uncle's ghost, Admiral Swift, help Mrs. Carelli winterize the Hall and make sure that no one else suspects anything. With the help of the Pike, the Admiral, and new friend Daisy, Stanley is ready (as ready as one can be) to fight off another round of angry, determined pirate ghosts. Book Two in the "Something Wickedly Weird" series is an easy and highly amusing read. It is not necessary to have read Book One but if it is as funny as Book Two, then it is probably worth the effort. Reviewer: Trina Heidt

Gr 4-6

Stanley Buggles returns to Crampton Rock, where another adventure awaits him. His discovery of a valuable amulet called the Ibis in The Wooden Mile (Roaring Brook, 2008) has awakened the Stormbringers, two pirate ghosts intent on reclaiming the artifact. Stanley receives help from the talking pike and the ghost of his Great-Uncle Bart as he tries to prevent the pirates from succeeding at all costs. Though even if he does, there is a risk that the Ibis's presence could create a greater threat, setting the scene for bigger adventures in future books. This offering has a more coherent and linear plot than the first title, moving through the action without the gaps and abrupt plot additions that plagued that book. The focus is still on action without much in the way of character development, but there is more substance. Fans of Philip Ardagh's work may find some similarities that will attract them. Mould's black-and-white illustrations are well done, particularly those of the characters.-Amanda Raklovits, Champaign Public Library, IL
