Rating: 1- 5 (5 is excellent or a Starred review) 4
Genre: Humorous stories
What did you like about the book? The characters from Home Sweet Motel are back for a new adventure at the Wonderland Motel in Miami, Florida. P.T. Wilkie, named after P.T. Barnum and enjoying the gift of exaggerated storytelling, lives in the motel run by his mom and grandfather, Walt. He and his best friend Gloria, who resides at his family’s motel, are still living off the fame of their first adventure when they must come up with a plan to stop P.T.’s mom from selling the motel. Luckily, a movie crew is scouting locations for a movie featuring an Oscar-winning teen actress, a spoiled pop star in his first film, and of course a famous internet monkey. Highjinks of all sorts ensue with plenty of laughs. The line drawing illustrations add to the fun.
Anything you didn’t like about it? No
To whom would you recommend this book? Fans of the first book in the series will welcome back their friends from the Wonderland. Hand it to anyone who enjoys antic humor.

Should we (librarians/readers) put this at the top of our “to read” piles? Yes, if you need a laugh.
