This book's target audience seems to be young teenagers in middle school or high school. It's fairly short at only 178 pages, so it's a pretty quick read. I would even categorize this story as a fairy tale type novel that is very fast paced.

King Pachuco is the youngest King in history at the age of twelve. Princess Mirasol, who lives with her grandmother and is only eleven years old. The two of them both attend a royal ball, and instantly there is a connection between them. There is an insane t

The cover is a collage of vignettes from the book. At first glance they seem random, but after reading the book you see how they are all inter-related. The cover has a Southwestern color palette, and is visually appealing.

The Main Characters:
Princess Mirasol- 12 years old
Lupita- Mirasol’s 80 year old grandmother
King Pachuco- 13 year old king of Pacifista
Queen Rosa- King Pachuco’s mother who rules Pacifista along with the young king

Setting- The Planet of Pacifista- A planet with daily, kaleidosco

A surprisingly well executed book, this sequel to the first novel is an intergalactic trip to earth and back from a parallel planet of polite, endangered people. While I had never read the original novel but was given the second to read, I was unsure about my ability to enter into the second book in a series. This book, however, was a fun and engaging piece that did an excellent job subtly bringing you into a story that was already set in motion, and reminded readers that it is not necessary to ...more

“King Pachuco and Princess Mirasol” by Bonnie Rucobo is perhaps best described as a Magical Fantasy Romance for Pre-teens, Young Adults, and Other Adults. In this charming tale eleven-year-old Princess Mirasol, who lives with her grandmother since the death of her parents, is busily sewing a fancy gown for the Palace Ball. She has never been to a Royal event, but is yearning for the chance to meet twelve-year-old King Pachuco and his mother, the Queen. On the morning of the dance, the Queen rece

King Pachuco and Princess Mirasol -The Sequel by Bonnie K. Rucobo is a 215 page children’s book, written in third person, past tense. The book includes twenty-seven chapters, an epilogue and glossary. I really liked the cover, and thought it was eye-catching and fit for the storyline perfect. The book formatting was spot on and thought the huge first letter at the beginning of each chapter was a nice touch.

The story takes place six months after the first book. It includes all the same characters

King Pachuco and Princess Mirasol by Bonnie Rucobo is a 178 page middle-grade book, written in third person. It is a high-flying adventure with a fairy tale type of plot to it. The writing is fast-paced and sure to please the twelve and under crowd. You can’t go wrong with fun characters to root for and bad guys you want to see get caught. The dialogue fit the characters perfectly, even when they were magically turned into birds. I loved the imaginative story.

In a far away planet, King Pachuco l
