the biggest bounciest battle ever (knight lights, vol 2)

Summary:
The Knight Lights were preparing for their evening roll call when they saw just a flick of something go by. Stilton quickly assessed the 'flick' as a flea, and the quest was on to rid Lindenberry Castle of the pulex siphonaptera!
Educational Themes:
Other than a remedy for dealing with fleas, there are no specific educational themes. Kids who are interested in graphic novels, though, may find this a nice primer for format and style.

Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow, just so your prepared when the next volume comes out. Kids (especially boys) will likely enjoy the pace and adventure. Those helping struggling middle-readers should give this series serious consideration.
Little Kid Reaction
I really like the characters; they were pretty funny during some parts. But I didn’t like the whole idea… I thought it was kind of pointless and weird. It is so weird it is kind of funny! I definitely disliked was the scene switching throughout the story. It is very sudden and random. I would recommend this book to a 3rd or 2nd grade level. If I was back in 2nd grade I would die for this book, but not at 12 years old.
Big Kid Reaction
This book was a disappointment. The first story was great, and even with the sidebars, etc., was easy to follow. This one seemed more chaotic.
Pros:

The book is written with rhyme and tongue-in-cheek humor, with short sentences and lots of pictures. The short sentences and fast-paced story will appeal to those who "have" to read but don't want to ... and improve their vocabulary without them knowing it!

Cons:

Having to take a 30-page detour (chapters 2 to 4) so newbies could read the original legend was annoying.
