As an adult reading this book, I found it fairly well written with an unusual story line. The characters are very likable. The second book is just as enjoyable as the first and not disappointing in any way. This is just he kind of book I would have loved in elementary school.
Okay, I gave the first book a 5 star review because I loved it! But I enjoyed this book even more. So let's pretend I give this one a 6 star review.
This book starts where the 1st book left off. May Bird and her companions on are the train headed towards the north. It leads to such an exciting journey from there. May Bird meets a lot of new friends and enemies. I loved the relationship between Somber Kitty and Pumpkin. Besides May, I would have to say that they are my favorite characters. I usually don't laugh out loud when I read a book (even if it is very funny) but I found myself doing so many times in this one. I don't want to say too much to give the book away but if you liked the first book, you'll definitely love the second.
