Editorial Reviews


5 Star Review- Crystal Marcos creates a wonderful cast of unique, exceptional characters that tell the story of "Headache" so very well.  I highly recommend this wonderfully well-written book. It is a tale that will keep you smiling well after you finish its pages. -  Joy H. for Readers' Favorite
5 Star Review-  Following up her previous volume discussing the heroics of Peter and Lina as they try to protect their hometown from a very persistent villain who has nefarious intent for them. "Headache" is a humorous and much recommended addition to general fiction collections. - Midwest Book Review

From the Author

I am so excited to bring the second book in the BELLYACHE series to my readers! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Sweet Reading!

Format: Paperback
I loved Crystal's first book, Bellyache: A Delicious Tale. I couldn't imagine how she could write another one to beat it, but she did! I know both books are "children's books" but any adult would love Headache: The Hair-Raising Sequel to BELLYACHE (Volume 2) too and root for the heroes in this imaginative story. I was really upset when Goaltan appeared in town and was determined to rid everyone of their sweets and pastries. What child or adult wouldn't want to pick a fight with this evil guy? I cheered the children forward to send Goaltan home where he belonged. I loved the reason Goaltan was so mean - existing because he was fearful of what others might do to him. This idea would leave children with something to think about themselves. Of course, all is well in the end and all the goodies children and adults so crave are back in the stores ready to be enjoyed. Crystal's book would be a good read-aloud story for home or school. Her characters are lifelike and the moral of the book definitely is one children will agree with.

Cover Art
I love the cover art in fact when I asked my kids what they thought they said so many fun things. I ask them usually before we start reading based on the cover art what this book is going to be about, they came up with some great guesses based on Bellyache the first in this series. Favorite part about the cover was the hair.

Why We loved it
We loved that Peter was on a mission to protect all the candy stores that Goaltan was out to destroy including his Papa's candy store. Headache has vivid, wonderful characters that are carried over from Maple Town. The Candy Land Gang (my kids) read this book through the night. Even I wanted to keep going, the way Crystal writes is epic for children. We cannot wait for more of Peter's adventures by Crystal Marcos.

"*I received a hardcover/paperback/eBook copy/ARC of this book for free to review from the author/publisher; this in no way influenced my review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own."

This was a cute, adventurous children story. Although I haven't read the first book to this sequel, it provided a glimpse to the generality of what went on. Which was, Peter and Lina were transported to a fantasy candy land called, Maple Town, where they meet and befriend Candonite characters. They had an adventurous experience there. They later return back home. Unbeknownst to Peter and Lina, a couple of their Candonite friends, Joe and Angela, got transported too including the evil Goaltan and his minions, the Peblars. So this is where this book comes in ..Joe and Angela searches for Peter in hopes that he can help them get back home to Maple Town. Then come to find out that the gang (Peter, Lina, Joe, and Angela) will have to work together again to fight Goaltan (and the Peblars). This time around, Peter and Lina's families get involve and we (the readers) find out a secret! The story continues with the journey they all had in the battle and adventure to saving earth and such.

I think young kids will enjoy this series. They'll find fun characters and exciting adventure. Also will learn the value of friendship, family history, and courage.

Oh, Lina and family are Filipino so there's a few Filipino terms. Cool! *I suspect the author and/or someone in her family is Filipino???

Format: Paperback
This review consists of two parts: 1. My daughter's review (she's 9) and 2. My review (the Mom). These are excerpts. For the full review visit us at our website: Mother Daughter Book Reviews.


What I liked and disliked about it:

I liked the whole, whole, whole book. It was awesome, cool, and funny. My favorite parts were when Angela and Joe were looking for Peter and they disguised themselves so nobody would notice that they were made out of candy. I liked that we find out that Peter's neighbor, Mr. Rupert, had a secret cellar in his house. It was a cool hiding spot.

Nana didn't say that she went to Maple Town in the first book, but in the second book she says she went to Honeyville, so she had been to that world, just a different town. That didn't surprise me because I kind of had a feeling that she had been there before.

I liked the new Papa's Sweet Shop. I liked the orange twisty slide, the ice room, and the really, really warm room, and the secret room upstairs. I wish I could go there or to Hawaii, cause I like it there too.

I didn't like that I didn't know what the Candonites look like. I can't imagine at all what they look like. All I can imagine really is just the colors that they can be, but only as people.

My bottom line:

I loved, loved, loved this book. I would recommend it to boys and girls 7 years old and up because there are both boys and girls in it. It might be a bit too long for kids that are younger.


What I liked and disliked about it:

We were all really big fans of the first book, BELLYACHE. I think this one is even better.
