|Retail Price: $18.95|
First thing I have to say is, kids are going to love this book. If you know of kids and teenagers (or even adults) who enjoyed the first book, they are going to love the second. It's another high adventure and it never stops from beginning to end! It's very fun and never predictable. Sometimes I really didn't know if I should cheer for Leven or give up in exasperation but the author (or historian, as the case may be) knows how to pull his audience in. A couple of new characters are introduced and the story continues on through Foo. I have to say I'm a little confused by Foo, but maybe it's because I don't remember my dreams very well. It could also be because I don't have a very good imagination, and it certainly has nothing to do with the actual story of Leven Thumps.
If you have not read the first one, Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo, you really should not read this one. It will not make any sense, since there is no history or reference to the first one in book 2, you are just thrown into the story. This is a series that the whole family can enjoy, and I think it should be read just before bed to enhance your dreams - as you learn about Foo.
