The Cardboard Kingdom #2: Roar of the Beast
The Cardboard Kingdom is back with another mystery, and there seems to be some sort of monster out there in the kingdom. Nate, the kingdom’s prince, is positive he saw it himself. No one believes him, though. Things get even worse when Vijay the Beast is trying to find himself again, and Nate’s stepbrother, Elijah, seems to be nervous about something, but what? It’s almost Halloween, and the kids still haven’t solved the mystery, due to other complicated things. What can the kingdom do about it? Calling all heroes, mages, beasts, and more, because when the beast comes back, they’ll be more than ready.
I like the artwork and how the panels are all different shapes and sizes. The ending was not how I expected it to be, though it turned out great. Years ago, my favorite character was the Sorceress. My favorite characters are now The Blacksmith and The Knight. I love how all the kids in the kingdom are different and amazingly creative. This book is full of feelings: emotion, drama, kindness, and humor. Highly recommended for imaginative readers and crafters of all kinds. You can be anything you want to be in the cardboard kingdom.
