really liked it
bookshelves: juvenile-fantasy
Read in September, 2010

I don't know why it took me so long to read the second volume of this series, but it took a near meeting with the mysterious author to get me to do it. No, really, he was just here drinking coffee, at the other end of our library. He spoke to one of my coworkers, after his real identity was exposed by a paperwork error at Little, Brown...or so they would have you believe. I think the Midnight Sun got to a vulnerable office worker, promising him or her fame, fortune and never-ending spa visits...
The book is pretty good, too, although I began to tire of a certain master of disguise who has very little regard for the safety of the main characters. I did enjoy the magic museum in the strip mall...the one here used to be in a bank basement, so it's not that farfetched.
That's the beauty of this book. The most outrageous things in it are this close to being true in the real world, which is what makes them so believable, in a scary, goofy way.

As it turns out, he's doing a program later this month at our library, in Pasadena California. We were teasing the kids with announcements that initially just said "The Name of This Program is Secret." He's a very nice guy.
