KIRKUS REVIEW

Molly Moon’s back, ready to save the world in this much-improved sequel to Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism (2003). Molly and the children of Happiness House orphanage have been living splendidly since Molly returned wealthy from her American adventure and hypnotized all the unpleasant adults into kindness. Now Molly’s old friend, hypnotist librarian Lucy Logan, has a dangerous quest for her. Swathed head-to-toe in bandages from a mysterious accident, Lucy describes a terrible tale of hypnotized media personalities compelled into celebrity endorsements. With the wealth from his endorsed products, Lucy explains, wicked Primo Cell might soon rule the world. Molly must head back to America to stop Cell’s dastardly plot. In Hollywood, Molly discovers that both she and Cell have power to stop time, and she must use her newfound power to prevent him from becoming president. Chock-full of classic B-movie adventure—from shocking revelations of parentage to a deus ex machina escape from an overly elaborate evil-genius deathtrap: an enjoyable over-the-top page-turner. (Fiction. 8-13)
