bookshelves: children-s, owned, read-to-the-boys
Read in March, 2011 — I own a copy

The boys enjoyed this as much as the first one. I found it dragged a bit in the middle during the episode with the bad guys and maybe the translation made the dialog nastier than perhaps it is in the original Swedish. I don't know I'm just thinking that threatening to kill kids over pearls isn't the best plot device ever. The ending was interesting when you felt a bit of pathos while the children decided they didn't ever want to grow up.
