Quirky, colorful, punny, and super fun with some serious climate change vibes! It’s been a while since I’ve read this series, so I have forgotten many of the characters. But thankfully, there are little anecdotes and references to the past books to keep new and returning readers up to speed.

There's a lot of growth in this volume, concerning maturity. Backstories are revealed and a lot of fighting gets resolved.
