So when I heard there was a 2nd book being released, I knew it would be on this school year's reading list! When I first mentioned it to the kids, they right away knew which book I was referring to and were more than excited about having the newest one to add to their collection. The Rootlets: Trouble at Plantasy Land will be released October 18th, 2016.
The synopsis says, "It’s opening day at Mr. Fungo Fungi’s magnificent amusement park, Plantasy Land...and The Rootlets couldn’t be more excited! With special surprises and newly sprouted rides, this is sure to be the greatest day ever! But when The Rootlets arrive at the park, they realize that something is terribly wrong. Plantasy Land is in trouble! Someone—or something—is destroying the park. Could it be The Great Zucchini, Mr. Fungi’s new magician? Or could there be an
even greater danger lurking beyond the park? Most of all, can The Rootlets trust their new super rootabilities to help them save their favorite place on the planet?"
It's all about these kids who have a vegetable element to them. It teaches kids not only that vegetables are not only good for you but also about friendship. What's neat about the character is that they have super powers and they involve what vegetables element they have, like Carrotina has super sight whereas carrots are good for your eyes. I found that to be a creative idea for the kids to associate the two together.
Yet again, this was an adorable book which our family enjoyed together. Declan my youngest even brought it to school for his weekly reading and was quite excited about sharing with his friends.
