Very, very funny. Every bit as good as the first one. My favorite part was the fire juggler at the Prodigy's circus, followed closely by the recurrent short jokes (such as how the mummy of a short pharaoh was found "under a very small sand dune, which turned out to be an overlooked pyramid"). Mr. Skippy is back too, and I enjoyed his new, equally passive role.

Cute followup to book 1. Wish there were more in the series!

I dont think the bribery is going to work because the jail seems really strict.
This Solomon Snow story isn't as good as the original story but it is awfully fun to read aloud to the kids. Mine were going nuts as the story got madcap and the Prodigy delivered her lines. Lots of memorable characters with great names.

Recommends it for: all with children
Another great read-aloud for my girls and I - the characters are so fun to portray! Although we didn't like this one as much as the first book, it was fun to travel with Solly, The Prodigy and Prudence again!!
Though I wasn't sure how I felt about the "midget clown" bad guy...It all came together beautifully. This author always has a place on my bookshelf!
This sequel was not even close to the delightful read as the original. Very disappointing.
Like a light-hearted Meggy Swan. Entertaining. Good enough.
Okay for a kid to read, but I can't recommend it to adults.
Funny, but not nearly so good as the first book.
