This is the second entry in the series about Cosmo. These books are for readers who are starting to enjoy chapter books. The first book ended with the cliffhanger of a missing grandmother. This book picks up where that one left off.
The premise of the series is that our allergic protagonist has created her own pet from Slime with the help of a little moon dust. Cosmo only comes to life for her and her good friend. Cosmo is an important part of their adventures.
What did happen to Grandma Sadie? What will Piper and Cosmo do to find her? Will they succeed?
Along with the story line, the author includes some facts as, for example, information about the constellations or Keith Haring. These brief sections are not heavy handed but may encourage readers to learn more.
This is a fun book with some bright, colorful illustrations that enhance the text. I think that young readers will enjoy it. As a bonus there is a slime recipe at the end.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
