Book 1 was a little uneven, but author Thomas Lennon pretty much hits it out of the park in his second installment pitting Ronan against an endless, comically criminal lot of the wee folk. Leprechauns, churichauns, banshees, pukas, far darrigs and a whole lot of other hostile troublemakers, to say nothing of a unicorn with a posse of goons and a really bad lounge act, await our hero and his friends as Ronan Boyle and the Swamp of Certain Death sweeps them to their likely doom. John Hendrix's dramatically cartoonish illustrations make the characters and their wacky perils especially vivid.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
