Night Buddies

Night Buddies Book 2
Impostors and One Far-Out Flying Machine
Sands Hetherington

John and his red crocodile, Crosley, are ready for another adventure as they try to find out who is framing Crosley. Midnight travels and strange friends are all a part of this crazy midnight adventure.

Wildly imaginative, creative and fun are just a few words to describe this book. I can imagine my son absolutely loving this book when he's a little older. But as an adult I found the craziness and intentionally misspelled words a bit over the top. I was also confused quite a few times. But since I haven't read the first book in the series, I wondered how much I was missing and how much was my being a bit too adult. If this book was just for me I would have to say I didn't care for it. But since I'm not the target audience I feel I should give the book a higher rating. The larger print, funny illustrations, and wild imagery will be devoured by a little boy. I will be keeping the book so my son can check it out when he's a bit older.

I received this book free of charge from Direct Contact in exchange for my honest review.
