If you or your favorite preteen child(ren) are not yet acquainted with Connan’s Flash Travelers Series, it’s time to say hello. This is another book in which the young Sam and his otherworldly friends have adventures, sometimes funny, often terrifying, and always highly entertaining. This reviewer would recommend that you start with Book One of the series for introductions, but you will not be confused if this is the first volume you read. Another winner and, one hopes, only the second of many.
