As a companion to Leonardo, this shares its predecessor’s look and expectation-toppling gag, but it does not have the first book’s effervescence nor its perfect pacing—and, crucially, it doesn’t get at the heart of what it seems to want readers to understand. A well-meaning miss.

One day, the two scaredy-cat kids make a particularly scary discovery: each other!
AAH! EEK!
Something has to be done. Something BIG. But what?
