This series is very creative and clever and I loved having the Spinner parents more involved in the plot this time. In this second book in the series, there are clowns everywhere instead of ninjas. The clowns are just as mean and nasty as the ninjas and really gross in their own way. A little too high on the yuck meter for me, but I am not the intended audience. Unfortunately the puzzles and extra content were not included in the digital ARC I reviewed, although I am assuming the added value wil ...more

The second book of this series was as fun to read as the first book and I look forward to more in the series. I love the fantasy and imagination that was put into this story. I suggest before reading book 2 that you read book 1.

I received this from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

I liked this as much as the first in the series.
Now Samantha goes to Mali, Indonesia and Peru.

I got the advance review copy of this book.
I loved the first book in the series.
This one is almost twice as long... and twice as funny!

(I love any book with unicorns.)

Well, this book was an adventure from start to finish! So much was happening! It was a bit ridiculous, but this is meant for middle grade kids so they would love it! The clowns are a good addition. They are insane! I really recommend this series for reluctant readers.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an advance copy of this book.
