Book 2 of Ravenspell

Who knew worms could be so creepy and devious? Sebaceous Ooze, a somewhat mentally unstable worm, and his sidekick, Fluke Gutcrawler, are going to take over/destroy the world. It's up to Amber and Ben and their friends to stop the evil worms. This time the humans notice some of the mice's curious antics, which ultimately leads to the humans thinking there's an alien invasion. It's a great kids' adventure with humor adults will enjoy, even if it will go over kids' heads.

Ravenspell by David Farland is a series about a kid named Benjamin Ravenspell who magically gets turned into a mouse. Two books are currently published, "Of Mice and Magic" and "The Wizard of Ooze". Both were read by David Walker who did an amazing job with the voices and the singing (yes there is singing in the audio version).

I was impressed by "Of Mice and Magic" where Amber turns Ben into a mouse together they save the world from an evil bat who may or may not be Edgar Allen Poe. The adventur

This is a cute, fun series, and I really enjoyed reading about Amber's and Ben's adventures once more. The life of a mouse is definitely not an easy one, where even a flea or a worm can assume the terrifying aspects of a cruel, evil monster. :)

Kids of all ages should enjoy this book even though there are some scenes which might be a bit scary for the younger ones. But, overall, there is a lot of humour, adventure and magic, which makes for fast-paced fun and entertainment with a few moral lesson

This book was certainly interesting. It picks up right where the previous book left off. It's more fantastical than the last book and less realistic (not that the other one was realistic); some pretty weird stuff happens. It does have some humorous moments. It parodies some popular movies/books in parts (e.g. Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings); that's a change from the last book.

What a weird book. Seldom have I read a book more entirely pointless and strange. It was so pointless that I had to laugh, especially when we get bits like the one in which is proclaimed, "Fluke, I am your father!" Which, quite obviously, elicits a cry of "NOOOOOO!" If it had a point, then I completely missed, it, and if it didn't have a point. . . well, I wouldn't be surprised.

I absolutely love this series. It's so much fun to read to my children and watch how involved they get in the story! The fact that the main female character adores the transformed little boy (the handsomest mouse ever) make the kids laugh out loud.

If you want something to truly entertain, get your hands on this series. It's brilliant and fun for the whole family.

This is the second book to Of mice and magic. It still has magic and dangerous and scary underground creatures trying to kill them and still their magic. this is when Ben discovers his full potential of using his magic with the help of his mouse friend Amber who also secretly loves Ben.

This is a good second book. I actually cried because it is hard not to cry at mom stuff when you are a mom. They aren't my favorite books, but they are enjoyable and well written. I would guess this author likes science, which I do too, so maybe that is part of why I like them.

This is the second book in the series and just as good as the first. I didn't like that Amber wanted to take over the world, but I was glad she matured and could see she was wrong by the end of the book. These are cute books, and very suspenseful and scary.

I enjoyed the first book of this series, Of Mice and Magic, a lot. I thought this sequel just got too weird. I didn't like the worms at all, and had to force myself to finish the book.
