" In this sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Kate and Henry can't wait for their grandfather to return. They even make him a special cake for his welcome home.The next before his return, Kate and Henry fall asleep while staring at a post card from their grandfather. In their dreams, they find a town filled with giant food and explore it.I liked this as much as the first book. I think it was a enjoyable read and those who liked the first book will probably like this one too. " said.

"The characters of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs are back, but now the story takes on a slant of reality. Could food really be taken to the rest of the world from Chewandswallow? Grandpa is about to tell us. This book is more about the pictures than the narration, unlike the first book which equally relies on both. The pictures show a fascinating land that children will surely want to escape to, while the words tell a moral tale of feeding the impoverished and not wasting. This is a fun book, though on its own it is not so exciting. But as a companion to the first book, this is definitely something I will use to teach kids about not wasting and helping others. " said.

" A fun and fantastical book. The detail in many of the pictures allow readers to look and look and look for all the things in the illustrations! So much to see. The story was very unemotional, straightforward, but still enjoyable. " said.

" I remember loving the first one as a child. I was not terribly impressed with this one. I think kids will find it funny and will love the illustrations, but I wasn't excited about it and that was disappointing. " said.

"This sequel to Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs makes a visit to the legendary city of Chewandswallow. The townspeople have figured out what to do with the copious amounts of food that have fallen from the sky. The generosity of the town will be heartwarming to young readers who are learning to be mindful about waste. The artwork is very similar to the drawings in the first book: larger than life servings of every imaginable food piling up on the streets of Chewandswallow. It's a fun follow-up, but the original book is still the best." said.

"I like how this sequel focused on sharing abundance. Where is there abundance, where isn't there abundance, and how do we all work together toward supporting needs...that can lead to a great PBL project. :-) It also can lead toward a discussion on the needs of living things. I also appreciate how inventive this series is. I think it is important to connection the creativity found within writing with the concept of invention found in science. It would have help my younger writing self, see myself as also having a science self. " said.

" A disappointing sequel to the great hit, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. I was not impressed, but I like the effort to revive the story. " said.

" Ages: 5 - 9**Like my reviews? I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too.
