    I didn't enjoy this as much as the first one. The use of the siblings is still in force, and each one gets to be heroic. The draw back is that for much of the book you are wandering though mazes, which is a bit of downer. The plot is good though. Still fun. I didn't enjoy this as much as the first one.

    I gave up after 10 minutes of getting "stuck" in the same forest area. Lots of inane flipping back and forth with no dialogue and going nowhere. I gave up after 10 minutes of getting "stuck" in the same forest area. Lots of inane flipping back and forth with no dialogue and going nowhere.

    I'm not quite sure how to rate this one. It wasn't as successful as the first one for me. I feel like I spent most of this adventure "travelling". I had to constantly flip back and forth to navigate certain areas like the forest, mine, town and island. I was tired of doing that before I really even moved forward with the plot. There's no real way to keep yourself from back tracking unless you make a note of every panel you visit. Then when I did get to panels that moved the plot, I felt like I w I'm not quite sure how to rate this one. It wasn't as successful as the first one for me.

Then when I did get to panels that moved the plot, I felt like I was missing things. By the time I got to the end of the story, I had no idea how I got there! Playing as a team (instead of 2 different paths for the bro and sis in the first book) kills the replayability too. There's so much travel I'm not sure I'd want to replay this one anyway. Maybe someday I will when my frustration dies down. But I still love the idea of these and I think they're great for middle-grade readers. This book also adds the "lose stars" feature, so your actions have more consequences sometimes. I love the art too, so it's hard for me to give this too low of a score. Who knows, maybe I just messed up by one panel and it somehow threw off the whole story for me. If more of these come out, I'll still buy them!

    Very cute, and engaging. It's a comic book that gives you options to create more then one adventure. So it's also a game. A little young for my taste but perfect for kids age 8 and up. There are over 350 illustrations. A hunt for missing Dwarf's , seems like a great adventure for kids who enjoy puzzles, and the pictures could entertain for many hours alone. Very cute, and engaging.

    More of a 3.5, really. I love the Hocus & Pocus concept, and this adventure is full of clever allusions and visual references. Readers will be rewarded by reading closely! I mean, they will literally be rewarded for reading closely because you end up losing so many of your stars if your magical companion is asleep at any time. Also, there are some very sneakily hidden numbers in the panels as well, so you really miss out on a lot of the story if you don't catch everything. There were a lot of mat More of a 3.5, really.

Also, there are some very sneakily hidden numbers in the panels as well, so you really miss out on a lot of the story if you don't catch everything. There were a lot of math-based puzzles and codes in this book, some of which involved a lot of flipping back and forth between pages. I liked the puzzles but keeping track of the pages got confusing quickly. There were also at least three maze-type sections where you look at one panel and try to find the number for the next panel, and so on and on and on and on. These sections were incredibly tedious and frustrating, which I suppose mimics the reality of that situation but I kept getting stuck in circles because I couldn't keep track of all the panels I'd already visited. There were just so many of them! And they all looked the same! I would recommend reading the first book first because, even though they both have the same beginner's guide in the front, I felt like the first one did a better job of easing you into the gameplay element.

    I love the concept of a “choose your own adventure” comic book, and I think the puzzles are a great way for middle-grade readers to build logic comprehension, but I found this to be tough to follow as an adult—I got lost at sea (you’ll know if you read this) and gave up; there’s also a lot of flipping back and forth. I’ll give the first book a try and see if it goes more smoothly.

    The characters and setting are vibrant and upbeat. It is a very interesting way to read a book furiously flipping back and forth to follow twisting paths. I will admit I got lost in the forest a few times when getting used to the game elements. Over all it is a fun romp through a quirky magic world and very reminiscent of old point and click adventures.

    Cool concept but I got tired of all the flipping back and forth real fast. It's more annoying then fun. Reading shouldn't be that much work. Kids might enjoy it more.

    I spent WAY longer reading (playing?) this than I expected to! With all that flipping back and forth, though, I worry about how well the binding will hold up over the long run.
