    This is the second book in the Measle Stubbs Adventures series by Ian Ogilvy. We haven't read the first book, but our girls liked the picture on the cover and decided to borrow the book. This story is a good introduction to the sci-fi genre for children. The narrative is engaging and the story is fast-paced. I liked the wickedly evil Wrathmonks, as they were very evil, but a bit silly, too. Their Three Stooges-like antics add quite a bit of humor to the tale. The plot is quite dramatic in a few places, but not too scary.Unfortunately, our girls just couldn't get into the story. Maybe they would like the story better if they read the first book in the series and got to know the characters first. I don't think that I'm going to convince them to do that, however, so we probably won't read any more of the books in this series. In any case, I liked this one.interesting quotes:"'The average human,' he said, 'is an idle brute.'" (p. 6) "Be quiet, Measle and listen. You only learn things if you listen. If you blabber and jabber all the time, you learn nothing - but everybody within earshot learns something. They learn that you're an idiot." (p. 95)"Measle had always been good at one thing - and that was knowing what to worry about and what not to worry about. He knew that the only things you ought to worry about were the things you could change. If you couldn't do anything about the problem, then it was a waste of time worrying about it." (pp. 182-183)

    This book was so awesome! These can be so funny and suspenseful! It truly is an amazing idea.

    Book #2 in a series of I think 4 or 5 books, this is a quirky series about a little boy named Measle. He is the son of a (minor) wizard and a very special mother, who has infinite mana (the source of power allowing wizards to cast spells). In the first book, Measle thinks he is an orphan, his guardian Basil Tramplebone is a wrathmonk, and we learn that wizards are good, warlocks are mostly good but sometimes bad, and wrathmonks are warlocks who have lost their sanity and are all bad. In this book, Measle is happily reunited with his parents (that is the whole first story - sorry for the spoiler) but soon, disaster strikes again (of course). This time, there is a new type of magical and mythical character, a Dragodon. As you can guess, these are people who partnered with dragons in days of old. How Measle sorts through this new adventure is a frolic through an amusement park, a gaggle of hapless wrathmonks bent on revenge towards Measle's parents for the fate of Basil Tramplebone, and a dragodon and his ailing dragon Arcturius.Ian Ogilvy has created a clever character in Measle. His writing style introduces great vocabulary, especially for American kids unfamiliar with terms used by our counterparts in the UK. An added bonus is the ample use of dialogue to further the plot. This is a highly readable book for kids ages 7 (if they are advanced readers) to 14 (my high schooler devours these books on his own as soon as we start group reading out loud) to 99 (I enjoy the books, too!). This book was read to my twins, age 12. We are looking forward to exploring the next Measle adventure!

    I found this slightly less interesting than the first book (Measle and the Wrathmonk), but it was still a good read. It was just a bit boring for me after 40 pages...or so...things picked up a bit after awhile, but still not as entertaining as the first book. I thought that the story was entertaining and would keep young adults interested without being gruesome or graphic. OK...for young adults...not enough for adults.

    Another fun Measle adventure, this one involving the usual cast of nefarious ne'er do wells, Measle and his spunky dog, and this time, a wizard and a dragon-type thing. Cute and fun as usual! Wish these were easier to track down!

    In the whole,it's a good book,but for my taste it is too boring,the first and third books (that I've read this far) are more interesting and thrilling. However,it's a good story.

    A fine children's fantasy with some laughs and suspense but nothing particularly unique about the plot, characters or writing.

    Second of the Measle series. Very cute story. Again the author switches POV way too much. Cute characters and story line.
