To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This book is almost a carbon-copy of the first book (which is literally my favorite children's book). It seems like they had a good idea, but couldn't flesh it out and instead just recycled all the material from the first one. Unfortunate. My child loves the first one but does not really want to read this one. It feels a little bit like a money grab to me.
The original is brillant: Fun and emotive to read, foreshadowing and building to a climax. This book has none of that. In the original the "kid" makes tacos for the dragons. Dragons are happy at all kinds of parties even if tacos are not involved. In this sequel somehow the world runs out of tacos, dragons cry all day, and only time travel to plant a "taco tree" can save the world. Also time machines generate alternate realities if given spicy salsa???
Do you enjoy explaining the self visitation time travel paradox to your 4 year old? Do you enjoy sequels that do not work as standalone books and have no climax or falling action? If so maybe you will like this book. Most people would be better served passing on this one.
I bought the first book for my nephew and it became one of his absolute favorites -- still up there. As soon as I saw there was a sequel, I knew I'd have to buy. Sadly the sequel was a let down. No new material -- just traveling back in time to keep taco parties alive? The nephew read once and then put it on it's shelve and there it sits. Don't waste your money.
Not as funny or intriguing as the first one. This idea, while novel, simply ran out of steam with the sequel. If there was any doubt, my grandchildren ask to be read the original when I start to read this one. Please don't do another sequel to this one. No mas.
I bought this for my granddaughter who is a toddler and my daughter tells me that it isn't as good as the 1st one. The 1st one my granddaughter just loved and wanted to read over and over. I guess it's all in a persons own preference but from my daughter, it wasn't as good as the 1st one
Really disappointing and hard to get through. The only original ideas that didn’t come from the first (great!) book are completely nonsensical. The only reason I’m giving two stars is because my kids still want to read it on occasion and put up a fight about getting rid of it.
