" I think I completely forgot what the first one was about until about 20 pages into this one. I felt this one was a little too crammed with characters and I sometimes did not enjoy jumping from one story to the next. But it's still amusing and the art is very charming, so I'll keep reading.Thanks to the publisher for a digital advance reader's copy, provided via NetGalley. " said.

" Cucumber Quest continues! Now that Queen Cordelia has successfully freed the nightmare knight, Cucumber, Almond, and Sir Carrot have to find Saturday (a character) to get back the Dream Sword. But first they have to defeat Splashmaster the first of the Nighmare Knights evil Servants. With the help of their new friend Princess Nautilus, and their ever growing skills, that might stand a chance! " said.

" Meh, not really my cup of tea really. I want to rate it a two if only because it made me feel nothing throughout the reading, but I really can't fault this for anything. The art is beautiful, the characters are fun and different, the setting and story is unique...it just doesn't pique my interest any, but I'm sure someone else will love it. " said.

" This type of GN is not my bag. The artwork looks like hasty digital renderings, the characters are over emotive bordering on silly, and the story has been done before. I know that there are kids who will enjoy this book/series, and I would not hesitate to put this in their hands, but compared with the beauty and depth coming out in GN format, this one falls flat. " said.

" This was the sweet continuation of Cucumber and Almond's "Quest" to save the kingdoms. Again, I adored the artwork, quirky/tongue-in-cheek ideas, and epic world-building. It is absolutely so much fun to read the story, the character cards, the Q&A, and "extra footage" all rolled into one book. I am SO looking forward to the next in the series! " said.

" The writing of the princess was very strange at the beginning, almost like the author made a mistake and needed to cover it up really fast? But I didn't see anything problematic in this one so that makes it better than the first. I'm enjoying the way the author thinks outside of the box on every page. I also really love the visual elements. " said.

"I'm in love with this comic series. The episodic nature of the books makes the character quirks (most notably Cucumber's deadpanning) a bit repetitive, which I suspect is a product of the book's webcomic heritage. But as with the first volume, it's more than made up for by the absurd humor, lovely artwork, and overall charm, which continues through the concept art, backmatter, and perfectly done "post-credits scene." This is one of my favorite current all-ages comics, and it's especially great for those who have a deep familiarity with video game tropes." said.

"Ha! Ripple Kingdom might be my favorite (of course this is only the second installment so we shall see!) From Bubblebeard to Splashmaster to Crabbro: "Crabbro...bro's call me bro" is such a hilarious line that I crack up just thinking about it (and it pops into my head at the most random times!) And I love Nautilus though she reminds me a bit of Dory with her forgetfulness - but I'm glad to see she'll be continuing on the adventure with Cucumber, Almond and Sir Carrot! Can't wait to see what's in store next!" said.
