Grade 2-4-It's one cliff-hanger after another when Andrew shrinks himself, his cousin, and his robot into specks smaller than dust. Their protection within a bubble is threatened time and again as the dog on whom they landed gets dragged into the bathtub. All kinds of gooey gross things come their way, from mold to spiders to dog doo. Greenburg works a little biology into the adventure, but basically this story relies on panic and slime. The expected ending never arrives; in its place is an announcement that Andrew's adventure continues in the next installment. Palen's black-and-white illustrations underscore the exaggerated sense of alarm. They also demonstrate the threat that the littlest living thing can be to people who have shrunk so completely. Purchase this book if you have fans of the first title or reluctant readers craving more stink and slime.Pat Leach, Lincoln City Libraries, NE
