Not nearly as good as the first

While I loved the first one, this felt forced and slow. The characters were not engaging, and neither was the plot. I was quite disappointed with the sequel, because the first was such a wonderful, engaging story.

Excellent Kid’s Book

I loved this book. Imaginative and well written. The narration was great.

The kids kept asking to listen to it in the car and before bed.

Highly recommend.

Outstanding story, reading, and production

I teach robotics at the university level, and also do a lot of K-12 outreach. The technical accuracy is stunning, and this book together with its predecessor also tells a thoroughly gripping story. The reading is marvelous, and I love the sound effects. They are subtle, but perfectly introduced. About halfway through listening I was gifted the hardcover set, which will take a place on my bookshelf reserved for the best treasures that I am sure will be admired for years to come.
