Really, I do! Too often they exist because the publishing bean counters know statistically that a mediocre sequel will sell better than a new concept. So they push writers to rehash an idea. The product disappoints, but sells anyway.
This sequel is every bit as good as the award winning original; and that’s an accomplishment. Trixie is older, but manages to lose Knuffle Bunny a second time. Again Willems‘ portrayal of the daughter to father, mother to father interactions are so true to life (and hysterically funny) that I’m pretty convinced it was born out of real life experience.
