Another one my daughter and I read together. We've been having a great time with this series. ( )

I liked the first book better because there were so many new things to get used to. The new writing style of the author made it funnier and more engaging.
The deal with this one was that it was too similar to the first one. Everything seemed same. Including the jokes. Althouh there were some good elements, but nothing was good enough for adult readers. I don't know about children though. ( )

Cas and Max-Ernest are still fighting the evil Midnight Sun forces while now trying to get themselves initiated into the Terces Society. And track down a homunculus.
A fun-enough sequel to the first book. I think I would have thought the series immensely clever as a kid (as does Charlie, who insisted I read them). ( )

This is the second installment of the series and the sequel to the Name of This Book is Secret. Cass and Max Earnest are still looking to solve the mystery that surrounds the people of the Midnight Sun. Particularly, they are involved in an ongoing attempt to fight the evil that surrounds Dr. L and Ms. Mauvis. It is an entertaining series for middle grade readers. ( )

Cass and Max-Ernest go on a field trip to the seashore and end up tied-up aboard a luxury yacht. They escape with an object that looks like a crystal ball but is actually a Sound Prism that allows them to overhear voices from a long distance. It also leads them to Pietro, a long-standing member of the Terces Society, which Cass and Max-Ernest want to join very badly, and to ancient story of a wizard who was able to grow a man from a pile of horse dung.

This is the second of the series and I haven't read the first, which would have been handy as the story keeps referring back to what happened before, and lots of footnotes encourage the reader to read in order. The book is narrated by an unknown person who is filled with anxiety over talking about the situation and it's overall a lightweight book with a bit of charm and some mystery. ( )
