Once again, this is a wonderfully presented book. The illustrations are lovely and inserted very well with the text. I found the story more interesting than the one in the first book, too. It was a lot darker (those poor cats and dogs!) and due to this there was a lot more at stake. I also enjoy how the siblings work together, but still have an appropriately tetchy relationship with each other a lot of the time.

More engaging than the first, having gotten farther into the fantasy stuff. The illustrations are the same quality, and so is the writing. Yet, this series seems composed more of chapters than books. Each one is only around 100 pages and each page is rather short. So in all, this "chapter" is a bit more interesting than the last. ( )
