{Synopsis} – This series is part of Scholastic’s early chapter book line called Branches, which is aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

In this second book in the series, Alexander and his new friend, Rip, try to learn more about the monster-filled notebook. They follow clues left by strange worms called night crawlers. It turns out new monsters are in town–giant fish monsters called tunnel fish–and even a fish-kabob monster! This humorous, action-packed book has fun black-and-white illustrations on every page.

{My thoughts} – Alexander and Rip are back an a whole new story. In this one there are some crazy night crawlers all over the place. It takes the boys awhile but they finally get the message that something very wrong is going on.

They have another student in their class named Nikki that kind of seems interested in the same things. Eventually the three of them start working together. It becomes their job to figure out what the worms are trying to tell them and then what to do about the knowledge. Once they start figuring things out though, it still isn’t an easy task.

I really liked this book. It helped to show that if children work together, they can accomplish a common goal. I like how the three of them put their heads together and figured out a reasonable solution to their problem. I think this is a fun series that any child can enjoy reading.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
