Good sequel to Travels of Thelonious. The adventures take the animals to several locations, including the Faradawn of the title, as they try to discover what truly happened to the human race. The writing and art is still very strong, but the ending was a little silly. (It is a children's book, I suppose.)

The themes of violence & sustainablility, of taking care of the Earth, are still written into the story. And I still want to read the final volume. But some of the novelty was gone for me in

The second book in The Fog Mound trilogy is just as awesome as the first. Miniature humans and flying machines!

Un deuxième tome sous le signe des retrouvailles. C'est divertissant, avec des animaux comme acteurs principaux de cette aventure qui ne manque ni d'intérêt ni d'intelligence. L'histoire rappelle, sans paraître donneuse de leçon, qu'il faut prendre soin de la planète et éviter de répéter les mêmes erreurs.
Un chapitre sur l'autre, le roman laisse la place à des pages de bande dessinée qui complètent harmonieusement cet univers. Cela permet ainsi aux plus jeunes lecteurs de s'y intéresser, car la

Meh. Not great, but not terrible. Apparently, there is a third book as well.

Good book!
The Brothers
Asher (8yo) read.

A good blend of text and graphic novel style for boys.
This is the second in this series and it is a quick read. I am enjoying the animals finding more out about their world and starting to get hints at what the humans did. I love Bill the very shrunken human who seems to lead them even though he tells them nothing. I did not think I would be but I am actually pretty exited to read the next one. Grades 3+

Sequel to Travels of Thelonius. Just as good as the first, I'm planning on reading the last book of the trilogy. (And if I'm reading three books in one series it's got to be good!) Very quick read, very entertaining, and I still don't know why Bill is miniature. Would appeal to boys and girls equally.

This is turning out to be a very cute series. The second book ends in a big cliffhanger. Now I'm going to have to read Book 3. Some of the animals are starting to make the same mistakes that the humans did before they all disappeared. I must find out what happened to all the humans.

The sequel to the first book leads a group of animals out of their new-found home - The Fog Mound - and back into the world of both talking and non-talking animals. This book is not all graphic novel, but has interspersed graphics and comic sequences throughout the book.

Another great one that continues the story of "Travels of Thelonious". A quick read, but also a very good one. Not quite as good as the first one, but I still found myself thinking "I'll just read one more chapter" and then reading another 50 pages before I knew it!

This is the second book in "The Fog Mound" series. These graphic novels are nice because the chapters alternate back and forth from pictures to words. My seven-year-old can't wait to read the third one!

These are simply told, but very interesting. They're very fun. I think it'd be great to have it told as more of a young adult book and go into more detail, as it easily could, but it is fun as it is, too.

My students finally discovered Travels of Thelonious -- a graphic novel hybrid that alternates graphic and text chapters -- and lucky for them, book 2 in the series is out!
Nov 19, 2010 Kim rated it really liked it
#2 in this young adult/graphic novel/science fiction/future dystopia trilogy of speaking animals and the weird, post-human world they live in. My almost 8yo loves them.

Not quite as engaging as number 1, but still a great offering for intermediate readers who are looking for a chapter book with lots of illustrations.

My son (aged 10) loved this series - he received this book and the third in the series for Christmas after having read book one and enjoyed it.

The adventures of Thelonius and friends continue as they seek to learn about the end of the Human Occupation and the rise of talking animals.

Thanks, Vega! I do like this very much. Such a nice blend of comic and novel, and a good dosage of humor to boot! Yay for Bill!

The second part of the Fog Mound trilogy; similar in style and format to the first part and just as good.

This book really was a lot worse than the first one. Very confusing and lacked a plot.
