This is the sequel to "Milrose Munce and the Den of Professional Help" and the two books should really be read in order since the "Den of Professional Help" provides a great deal of background to the "Toxic Fungus" story. Most of that background is either taken for granted (not explained) or only briefly explained in "Toxic Fungus". However, each book's actual storyline stands alone. That said, I think I preferred "Toxic Fungus" as the story was a bit deeper and darker, and the characters were made to think about their lives and decisions more. In other words, they were growing up a bit! Mr. Cooper's style of writing is the same, and he has an incredible ability to 'turn a phrase'! There were a few times while I was reading that I laughed out loud, but they were because of the mental image conjured by the words rather than an incident in the story itself.

The story itself was geared to the YA age group, but could be enjoyed by adults as well. As I said, it was a bit deeper, darker, and more thoughtful than the first book. While this was by no means a serious book, it might be a good book for a parent to read with a YA and discuss afterwards some of the moral and ethical dilemmas that Milrose and his friends faced. Definitely recommended for anyone, of any age, with a very quirky sense of humor!

Note on Kindle formatting: Very good, but not perfect. Most of the book had several lines between paragraphs, most obviously during conversations. That gave the feel that there were incredible pauses between responses. There was one section where there were no spaces between paragraphs at all, and that didn't strike me as 'quite right' either. Neither of those actually impacted reading, and if I remember correctly, the "Den of Professional Help" also had the multiple spaces between paragraphs, so that may be intentional. Either way, it's non-standard but only takes a minute or two to get used to.

Milrose and Arabella are back. Still talking to the air in front of them. Or so most people think. Yup, they're still considered freaks and outcasts. The world at large still completely unaware of just how much the two did for them (if YOU don't know, STOP! See Milrose Munce and the Den of Professional Help (Extended Edition) - really otherwise this book will just remind you of a story told elsewhere and wouldn't you like to know?).

The few who don't find this dynamic duo odd? Well they're dead. They're the air that the two are talking to. Okay, maybe they are even a few wise (or not so wise) among the living who know the truth and/or accept them as they are. Kitty Muell, for example, Arabella's biggest fan (besides Milrose, of course). Caroline Corduroy, the principal.

When the usual cast starts to notice something odd - like the fact that the chalkboards are no longer green for the normal reason, but instead because plants are growing from them, Milrose gets a little concerned. More so when Arabella starts acting odd(er). The principal goes missing. And the evil Loosten is suddenly smack dab in the middle of everything... again. And that's just the beginning... I wouldn't want to spoil too much for you, now would I?

Can Milrose and his dead buddies save the school and come out of this one alive (and dead as the case may be?).

This book is listed in children's books - and it is. But even if you don't love those or "YA" books (which I do), you'd probably still find this one a bit different. It's smarter than the usual children's series. Yes it uses the occasional big word.

As some others have noted, this book is a lot darker than the first and actually took me a bit to fully digest it. Present are the rapid fire dialogue that we all know and love. A few new interesting characters in it, but unless you've read the extended version (I have not), you will likely feel like you're missing some of the story somewhere. At least I did. The themes are certainly darker in this one and we might not see some characters again.

Overall I enjoyed another romp thru Milrose's world and look forward to the next.

I liked the first book in this series better than this one, but this one isn’t bad at all. It has a twisted kind of humor, and uses some big words, so I’d recommend it for the older YA crowd as well as adults.

There were a few slow places that I don’t remember the first book having. And one of my favorite characters gets kidnapped early on, so we don’t get to see much of her. I’m not sure how to describe this series honestly. It reminds me a little bit of Neil Gaiman movies like Coraline and the Nightmare Before Christmas, but there’s also lots of mentions of vomiting and other icky things that appeal to little boys. And larger words than you usually see in kids and young adult novels.

I don’t think I’ve actually come across another book quite like these. I’d recommend trying them if you haven’t read them already.

3.5 Stars.

Douglas Anthony Cooper has done it again! Open up the dictionary under "teenage sarcasm," and you will undoubtedly find a picture (ok, a drawing) of Milrose Munce. In this wonderfully funny novel, Munce saves another day with the assistance of his unusual girlfriend, his more unusual friends, and the outrageously unusual individuals he meets in the Park. Cooper is exceptionally gifted in the art of alliteration and the quick response, giving ammunition to his teen readers, and making adult readers only wish they'd been half that good at it in high school. What's more, this is an intellectual book which might just promote depth of thought on architectural and philosophical notions. Read "Milrose Munce and the Den of Professional Help" first. Then, expand your horizons into this book! (No foreknowledge of mushrooms required.)
