Datorită faptului că am citit primul volum al seriei cu mulți ani în urmă, am fost surprinsă să regăsesc aceeași magie între paginile cărții.
În acest al doilea volum, orfana Molly Moon împreună cu prietenul său Rocky este trimisă în L.A. pentru a dejuca planurile lui Primo Cell, om care voia să ia lumea în stăpânire cu puterile sale hipnotice. Cea care îi cere lui Molly să pornească în această misiune este Lucy Logan, femeia care i-a oferit cartea lui Molly și a învățat-o astfel despre existența

This is the second book in the Molly Moon series.

This time, Molly has promised to stop using her hypnotic powers because they are too "dangerous", but she misses the sensation that she gets when hypnotizing people and the fusion feeling, so she attemps to hypnotize objects instead of people one time when she is wearing a diamond around her neck and it freezes time! And Molly is summoned by Lucy Logan, a librarian and the sister of Cornelius Logan (the author of Molly's hypnotism book), to stop t

After learning how to hypnotize people all over the world, rescuing her pet pug Petunia from being dog-napped, you'd think Molly would have had enough adventures to last a lifetime.

Molly Moon Stops The World written by Georgia Byng

The book Molly Moon, written by Georgia Byng is a fantastic book. It follows the main character, Molly, and her dog Petula’s adventure when discovering that Molly has time traveling powers! This book is exciting, thrilling, and mysterious all at the same time. If you don’t read this book, you missing out.
At first, Hollywood actress Molly Moon thinks that she is the only person in the world that can stop time, but as the book continues, Molly rea

A Molly Moon sequel! I think I read this book when I was younger, but I'm not sure. I also recently read the first part in the Molly Moon series, and since I really liked that story, I was a bit hesitant to read this one. Not often do sequels live up to the tone set by the first book, and even less likely it is that they are better. With Molly Moon Stops the World I definitely felt it belonged in the latter category. The book was so full of intrigue and excitement, it was hard to put down.

For c
2.5 stars. My kids are still really into this series. POSITIVE SIDE: There is even more action than in book #1. The twists and turns play largely in this read and had one of the boys talking excitedly nonstop on this fact. NEGATIVE: The characters and their directions of thoughts I was disappointed with. I just couldn't feel much for any of the characters with this one (book 2 of the series). I'm told books 3 and 4 are better.

This was literally my favorite book in the world. Everything that happened was so descriptive that I could just make a movie in my mind. Molly was so clear, what she looked like and her personality.

This book has four main characters: Primo Cell, a mean billionaire who has many other quirky powers/traits, Molly Moon, a ten-year-old master hypnotist, Rocky, Molly's trusty best friend who can hypnotize people with his voice, and Lucy Logan, who helps Molly to figure out the Primo Cell case.

I love these books! They are so cute and fun to read. Although I do admit I purely picked this book up because there was a pug on the cover.:p. But I am a pug fanatic so I had to read this book. Had to had to had to. Because so far, the pug on the cover books I have read have all been good.

I thoroughly enjoyed Molly moon stopped the world. I would give it a 3.5 out of 5. I would give it higher but the role of the antagonist got confusing at the end. There was one main antagonist for most of the book but towards the end it turned out that there was a different antagonist who superseded the original. The plot in this book is more interesting than the plot of the last book because there is more risk and action. in the last book, there wasn't much danger to molly. but in this book mol ...more

Molly Moon Stops The World is a great book. It has a bunch of events that made me feel like I was in the story and that I had to help Molly and Rocky.Rocky is Molly's friend who can hypnotise people just like Molly. I think that it's a great book.

Molly Moon Stops the World (Book 2) is one of those books that might seem for children after looking at the cover, but I would say that all teenagers should give a chance for this book. I would say that this book led me to enjoy reading. I loved how even though the main characters were around 11-years-old, they were capable to do so many things. The story and plot was very exciting and unlike any other book I have read. All the twists and turns Molly had to face kept me interested and curious to ...more
Molly Moon Stops the World is a really great book. I wished I read the 1st one in the series. I wished that I read the first one in the series so I could understand the story.
The way the author wrote the book was really good first off. I heard that in the first book she learns to hyptnotise people. I wished that I read the first one so I could understand the story more. In this book, Molly Moon is on her way to the Oscars. Then she finds a way to stop time but she can walk arownd that all I'm

Recommends it for: nobody!
This is not the sort of book I would've chosen to read, but I was assigned this for my book group so I figured I would give it a go. I managed a whopping fifty pages before the choices flashed before my eyes:

1. continue reading and wait for brain death;
2. abandon this book before my brain turned to mush;
3. suicide.

I opted for the second option, and just in time! I was beginning to see my friends as 'chubby' or 'totes uncool' instead of people with personalities and feelings that I wanted to spe

I love this book!

So, I'm writing a review from a few years back, when I picked up this book the first time. I love it! It's actually my favourite book from the entire series, though the others are awesome, too.

Molly Moon: Brilliant, awesome, wonderful. Adjectives, people! Molly Moon, kid hypnotist, is all of these things and more.

Overall: The book was amazing. There's nothing better than a book filled with intrigue and suspense, bringing the action right up until the last second. Truly an asto

Now she can freeze the world! With that power though, comes a new mission. To stop the madman Primo Cell from becoming president! With Rocky, Petula, Ms. Trinklebury, everyone else, and a few new characters! Who can be trusted with Primo Cell having control of so many people? Will Molly and Rocky su ...more

The 2nd book in the Molly Moon series and a wonderful, action-packed adventure for children and adults alike!
I read this book before the first one, because I owned it and I absolutely loved it, which made me go straight out hunting for the first one in the series. The plot certainly isn't dull as the protagonist Molly finds herself in more than a few dangerous situations and you find yourself not wanting to put the book down becuse of the full suspense! A certain re-read, and one I will treasur

The Next One Better Be Better: I'm pretty disappointed with this book; it was not as good as the first, and in the end everything got confusing and the same things happened at least twice. Yes; I was a little disappointed.

And What Was it Like? Surprising, shocking, somewhat interesting, scary, dark, weird, funny (pretty much only the Brenda toilet cleaner part), and crazy. That's what I'll call this book.

It wasn't THAT Disappointing: No, not really; just disappointing for a Molly Moon. But when
