It'd be hard to understand unless you've read the 1st one. It was pretty cute and for me it was an easy-read. It kind of shows you should give time to your kids or else they'll bring world-havoc. It also shows you should be careful what you say because it might be the last thing you get to say to them. Oh and also jealousy is a bad feeling that you shouldn't harbor.

Recommends it for: young fans of Harry Potter
Readers too young for Harry Potter may enjoy this series but would do better having mom or dad read it to or along with them, as there are lots of footnotes that add flavor to the story but are also more than a little distracting and may sidetrack younger readers. I would not recommend it for a child with poor or mediocre reading comprehension skills.
lovely next book in the series. Lovers of Harry Potter or How to train your dragon should give this series a try.
A really fun book I read with Caleb. All about the mysterious world of wishes! A great book for the kiddos!
Not as good as the first book, but still a very quick read and an enjoyable one.
If you like reading children's books read this one. This is a fun, lighthearted book.
Now were getting to the challenge. I love the characters and name play.
A moving book, the second of the Benjamin Piff series.
A fun little book. Quite imaginative.
