Kondo and Kezumi brave new waters and adventures in the second book of the full-color chapter book series for fans of Mercy Watson and Ivy & Bean.

Kezumi is ready for more adventure. Kondo is ready to go home. Now that Kondo and Kezumi have figured out that the map can lead to incredible places and new friends like Albert, Kezumi is eager to keep exploring and embracing the unknown. Kondo on the other hand, is tired and misses the comforts of home. When they reach Bell Bottom tempers are high, a thick fog begins to cloud over the boat making it hard to see, and they find themselves stranded.

It will take working together and listening to each other in order to find common ground and brave these new waters.Full-color illustrations were drawn in pencil and rendered digitally.

School Library Journal

Gr 1-3–Kondo and Kezumi are best friends and love to go on adventures. However, they don’t always agree on their destination. A lover of food, Kondo wants to visit Spaghetti Island. Kezumi wants to visit every location, island or otherwise. When a storm causes them to shipwreck on an unknown island, the two argue, separate, and get lost. Will the friends find their way back to each other and make up? Will they figure out a way home? And will Kondo ever get to see Spaghetti Island? Tsurumi’s full-page vivid illustrations do a great job of bringing the story to life. The characters are likable and engaging. The plot is fairly well developed, but simple enough for young chapter book readers to follow. A surprise twist at the end will delight and amuse kids. VERDICT Those who enjoy stories about adventure, fantasy, humor, and friendship will appreciate this sequel. Recommended for early chapter book collections.–Kira Moody, Salt Lake County Lib. Svcs.
