My Rating : 5 Dragon Prints
This is a wonderful continuation, following the kid detective, his crush, and our favorite characters from book 1. This time, all of the chapters, happen during summer and throughout the year and a lot happens… especially there’s progress with the crush.
I’ve never been to camp as a kid. We either had no money or I didn’t know of any camps close by. I had, however, been a counselor for a kid’s theatre camp and learned about games, how kids can be kids, and that magic shows are fun. It was nice reading about different camp activities, being introduced to new characters, and I’m glad that Charlie stayed Charlie. It made me feel like a kid and want to join in the fun, especially the water fights and seeing lanterns. It was nice to see Striker solving mysteries and seeing what happens after each mystery got solved which was different from the first version.
I also enjoyed the illustrations. If you guys know me, I love illustrations in books! Seeing beautiful illustrations which introduced the chapters made it more fun to read.
This is a great read for parents and middle grade kids. Go Striker!
PS: I still think that Striker is the young version of Shawn Spencer from Psych. ˆ_ˆ
