Leven Thumps and the Whispered Secret (Leven Thumps #2)
Seemingly millions of creatures with odd names, exceptionally weird concepts and one to many characters.
I found it was almost like the author kept having writers block, and so every time he did, he threw in something new for Leven to run into.
I admit I haven't read book 1 because my library never seems to have it in, so maybe that is why its confusing?
If you're an Alice in Wonderland person, then you'd probably like this, otherwise, its rather a waste of time.

Leven is torn between rescuing Winter and taking Geth to the turrets where he can reclaim his seat as leader of Foo. If they delay in reaching the turrets, Geth will die.

Like the first book, The Whispered Secret managed to pick up the pace at the end, but that did not make up for the first three quarters.
Perhaps it would be a better read as a part of a nightly tradition in which you read a chapter or two to your children. That would break up the tedious repetition of the same plotline.
I'm amazed I feel this apathetic about the book, because I do like the storyline and the setting. The writing and the world of Foo itself are m ...more

I thought this was a pretty good book. I read the first book a while ago and I pretty much forgot everything that happened. The story is about more of Leven's, Winter's, Clover's, and Geth's adventures across Foo as they try to get Geth out of his toothpick form.
The book was good. Leven obviously matured while the book progressed. I also liked how Winter got to learn about her long-forgotten past. Clover's one of my favorite characters because of his humor. (view spoiler)[Geth became a beauti...more
