Amulet Book Two: The Stonekeeper's Curse

Title: The Stonekeeper's Curse
Author: Kazu Kibuishi
Genre: Graphic Novel
Page Count: 217
Why I read it: graphic novel challenge
Grade: B

In this thrilling sequel to AMULET #1: THE STONEKEEPER, Emily and her brother Navin head for Kanalis, a beautiful and mysterious city of waterfalls, where they hope to find the antidote for the poison that felled their mother. That cure lies in the eggs of a giant serpent atop Demon's Head Mountain, but the kids' archenemy, Trellis, is headed for the peak, too. A battle that will engulf all of Kanalis is looming. It's up to Em to triumph over evil while controlling the amulet's power . . . without losing herself!

My review:
I think this one was a bit of an improvement over the first book.  It seems like the story is settling in a little bit, and things are getting more interesting.  It's still a fairly simple story, but the artwork is good, and there are fun things going on.

There really isn't a whole lot to say about this one.  Like the first book, it would be a fun one to read with your kids.
