Book Review: Night Buddies (Book 2) Impostors, and One Far-Out Flying Machine


Night Buddies, Impostors, and One Far-Out Flying Machine, the second book in the Night Buddies series, has a ton of mischief going on all over the Borough, done by a red crocodile and causing confusion and hard feelings everywhere.



For young John Degraffenreidt, lying awake at night is no reason to fret when it brings a bright red crocodile named Crosley out from under his bed. Night Buddies like Crosley promise a big adventure to any kid not sleepy yet--and tonight is no different! Out of bed, and into the city, John starts on a very special Program (Night-Buddies-speak for adventure) with his crocodile friend. Crosley is a unique, wacky character, the only red crocodile in the world for sure, but look-alikes have started popping up all over town, committing crimes, causing confusion, and making Crosley crazy at the sight of them. The impostors must be stopped, and Night Buddies John and Crosley are just the ones to stop them! Stakeouts and wild chases in a fantastic flying machine, far-out schemes to snare the impostors with the help of old friends and new ones, and a never-ending supply of Crusted Crème Fro-Madge frozen yogurt make for one totally super night.

Overall Thoughts:
Sands Hetherington has done it again with another wacky after lights-out adventure story in the Night Buddies series and Jessica Love's illustrations throughout the book give old and new characters even more depth for young readers.The zany context keeps readers engaged while the fun-filled adventure spirals out of control until our lovable main characters solve the program.

If you have a child who loves the Captain Underpants series, they are sure to enjoy these wonderful books too.

Note to parents and teachers: There is a glossary at the beginning of the book to explain there are unusual words some of the characters say. Crosley also explains not to use these words in school or on tests.
