The Ifs Return, by J. D. Pooker
The Ifs have returned for more fun for their readers, but more worry and danger for our heroes, Broden and Landon. Gage, evil If, has managed to escape from his brother, Slade's jail and Slade again appeals to the boys for their help. Little (no pun intended) did they know that they would be fighting the bad Ifs on their terms, and not much more than their six-inch heights. Gage has acquired the magical talismans from Slade's village and has put the world into suspended animation while shrinking the boys. How are they possibly going to defeat Gage now?
J. D. Pooker has once again given us a fun, action-packed adventure that will keep the young reader turning the pages. This second book in the series is a bit shorter than the first, but I am finding that I've enjoyed it more. The two boys continue their brotherly bonding and we get to see more of the lives of the Ifs.
I would highly recommend this book to young readers. It is a quick read, which would also be good for reluctant readers.
