Publishers Description In this charming sequel to the classic "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, " Kate and Henry eagerly await Grandpa's return from a vacation that his postcard says has been one of the best and most unusual ever. Thinking about that postcard Kate drifts off to sleep that night and... "With Henry as my co-pilot..." she visits the strange land of Chewandswallow -- a land characterized by massive amounts of food, immense carrots, leafy jungles of lettuce, and tuna fish sandwiches so gigantic they have to be moved by helicopter.

didn't seem as amazing as the original, but still pretty awesome Jan 6, 2008
This book didn't excite me as much as the original (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) but then again, I was a little kid when i read the first and now I am old and moldy so to speak. I think kids will still love this one! 4 stars!
Disappointing sequel Dec 15, 2007
Years ago, my kids had enjoyed the book "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs". When I learned that there was a sequel, I immediately ordered it for my two young grandsons, along with the original. Both my husband and I were disappointed with the new book; it seemed downright silly and except for "grandpa" in the story, it didn't have too much to do with the original.
As good as the first Oct 25, 2007
I was surprised to read all the negative reviews of this book so I had to submit my own. My son loves this book even more than the first (also one of his favorites). This one, like the first, has great illustrations, a great story, and never fails to get my little one giggling (even after reading it 100 times)!
Eh... Jul 4, 2007
I grew up loving the prequel Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, so I bought this book a while back to complete the collection. Upon reading it however, I was quite dissapointed...it is okay as a children's book, but as a sequel it wasn't up to par with the original. I felt that this book lacked the charm that the original had, though the message about sharing is nice I guess. All in all if you're going to buy the book based on the original, expect to be dissapointed...but if you're buying it for a kid's collection it's alright.
One of my FAVORITES! Jan 4, 2007
This is one of the BEST kids' books around. A fabulous sequel to "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs", this is just one of those fun books to share wtih your kids, and a must-have on the shelf, even if your kids are too old to apprecite it - everyone needs a little silliness now and again!
