"A riptide of a magical adventure! Hello There, Do You Still Know Me? pulled me in and took me on a delightfully engaging ride with some well-crafted characters. Kids'll adore this book!" - Alan Katz, award-winning author of Take Me Out of the Bathtub and Other Silly Dilly Songs, Where Did They Hide My Presents?, and The Day the Mustache Took Over
"Madison McGee and her friends are off on another adventure. This imaginative middle-grade fantasy hits the spot on so many levels, including friendship, loss, and kindness. A great cast of likeable characters, lots of humor, and some fun time-travel surprises, all add up to pure magic!"
- Marcia Strykowski, author of Call Me Amy (Bank Street College of Education Best Books of the Year, SCBWI Crystal Kite Award shortlist) and its sequel, Amy's Choice
"Laurie B. Arnold takes us on an exotic heart warming journey, with magical twists and turns contained on every page. You will instantly feel like you're one of Madison's best friends so buckle up for the trip! Filled with lessons we should all take to heart, everyone that Madison touches is better for it. I couldn't wait to see what happened next."
- Kathryn Fitzmaurice, author of The Year the Swallows Came Early (Booklist starred review); A Diamond in the Desert; and Destiny, Rewritten
"There are two things that can be difficult for readers: One, finding a title that is so magical and fun that you can't put it down (AKA: Harry Potter); and, two, coming across a sequel that is as good or even better than the first in the series. Well...look no more. For those who missed out on Hello There, We've Been Waiting for You, author Laurie B. Arnold has not only "followed up" with that title in a big way, but also created a sequel where the characters are even more fun; the location is even cooler; and the magical TV (that's right, I said TV) is even more awesome than before.....This sequel rocks. The toughest part in all this will be waiting for Book III and the return of Madison McGee." - Feathered Quill Book Reviews
"The time travel was my favorite part....The story is full of magical fanny packs, a time-traveling television and lots of adventure making for an overall fun, quick read." - Log Cabin Library

In the first book we learn that Madison has come to live with her grandmother after her mother died of a heart attack. She is of course in deep mourning. In this second book of the soon to be trilogy, once again through the magic of the MegaPix 6000 (which is a rather wonderful and mysterious television which transports Madison and her two friends into the past), Madison enters the past of the mother she lost. Deeply missing her mother, Madison is naturally both fascinated to meet her as a teenager, at nearly the same age as Madison herself, and also is thrown back into the pain of her loss. All she wants is to be with her mom, but at the same time, this is not yet her mom! And of course she can't tell her mother who she is. But Madison's mother feels a deep and unexpected connection with this girl she just met, allowing Madison to reconnect with her mother without spilling the beans that she is her daughter. The love for her mom becomes enriched by a sweet and natural friendship.
There are many wonderful things to learn from this narrative, told in the delightful voice of Madison herself, besides the simple delight of adventures to exotic and not so exotic places - friends are forever, speaking one's truth can be difficult but allows a relationship the space to grow, a team works best when each person's special talent is appreciated, and my favorite, hidden in the wrinkles of time worn faces, the original heart of the that older person's young self still beats strong and bright. Our parents were once the same age as ourselves, and we might have found friendship had we had the privilege of knowing them then.
Like in the prequel, "Hello There, We've Been Waiting For You", Laurie Arnold has seamlessly woven real world relationships with magical ones. She reminds us that magic is found around us every day in our real lives, through love, through adventure, through intuitive hunches, and that the important stuff of life transcends the imaginary. I would buy this book for every child I love, as Ms. Arnold shows in simple direct ways how effectively love and caring can help solve problems, and it is such a fun adventure filled with people you like to spend time with!
When her mother died a year-and-a-half ago, Madison had gone to live with her self-absorbed bleached-blonde grandmother, Florida Brown, in Truth or Consequences, N.M. When Florida shows up unannounced at La Posada Encanta, it turns out that she is deathly ill. Madison, Noah, Violet and Rosalie rely on each other — and some magic — to cure Florida and set things to rights. I won’t say anything more because I don’t want to spoil this quirky, funny book, but I will say that the MegaPix 6000 TV makes a return visit!
While not quite as dazzling as Hello There, We’ve Been Waiting for You!, I very, very much appreciated having this light-hearted read when I was very, very ill. Recommended for kids and adults alike who’d love a clever, humorous read.
