The first in the second volume of books from the author of the HaHa Rain series. As with volume 1 this contains five books (The Spooky Spook, Don’t Give Candy to Bubba Washington 2, Little Bob, Cloud Riders 2 and Mr. Bubbles’ Big Breakout) albeit it is only the first two that are currently available.
The tale of a nana living in an old house that not only squeaked and creaked but smelt of sweet, old lady perfume. Not that this is the strangest thing about this house; no, that honour goes to ...
the dreaded, the fierce, the freaky SPOOKY SPOOK.
With its images of creepy crawlies; cockroaches, spiders and black widow spiders I'd think THE SPOOKY SPOOK would prove a huge hit amongst certain boys (or indeed girls) of a certain age who for some reason tend to delight in such things.
Kevin and Caroline are ready to fly with the new Unicorn they discovered in book one. They gather their candy and jump on for a death defying but wildly hilarious adventure of a lifetime.

Meanwhile in this, the second book of volume 2, as promised at the end of the last instalment of Don't Give Candy To Bubba Washington (which I reviewed along with Lesson Magic here) Bubba Washington's story continues in DON'T GIVE CANDY TO BUBBA WASHINGTON 2 which sees Kevin and Caroline off on an riotous adventure with 'the Unicorn' who not only gets a name but makes a major revelation that unicorns aren't suppose to eat ...
Hah! As if I'm going to tell you that.
Though each book contains a standalone story that is not generally connected to other books in that volume (though as with Don't Give Candy To Bubba Washington 2 a book may be continued in the next volume) they all have several things in common, not least of which is they are all highly imaginative; the fun stories combined with the different sized and coloured fonts, the images and designs by numerous photographers and graphic designers, the mix of white and vibrantly coloured pages highly enticing for readers of all ages - the author suggests 1 to 120 though I personally think them particularly suitable for older children and so-called 'tweenagers'. But then what do I know? Far from a tweenager (though not yet half way to 120) myself I found both books entertaining.
SUMMED UP IN A SENTENCE ... Exactly the sort of books I'd suggest to those with children who find books boring.
My sincere thanks to the author who sent me four copies of his books, these two from volume 2 along with another two, Lesson Magic and Don't Give Candy To Bubba Washington, from volume 1 which I had shared my thoughts on previously.
