5.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful book by Marcos! 6 July 2012
By Patricia E. Douglas - Published on
I loved Crystal's first book, Bellyache: A Delicious Tale. I couldn't imagine how she could write another one to beat it, but she did! I know both books are "children's books" but any adult would love Headache: The Hair-Raising Sequel to BELLYACHE (Volume 2) too and root for the heroes in this imaginative story. I was really upset when Goaltan appeared in town and was determined to rid everyone of their sweets and pastries. What child or adult wouldn't want to pick a fight with this evil guy? I cheered the children forward to send Goaltan home where he belonged. I loved the reason Goaltan was so mean - existing because he was fearful of what others might do to him. This idea would leave children with something to think about themselves. Of course, all is well in the end and all the goodies children and adults so crave are back in the stores ready to be enjoyed. Crystal's book would be a good read-aloud story for home or school. Her characters are lifelike and the moral of the book definitely is one children will agree with.

This was a cute, adventurous children story. Although I haven't read the first book to this sequel, it provided a glimpse to the generality of what went on. Which was, Peter and Lina were transported to a fantasy candy land called, Maple Town, where they meet and befriend Candonite characters. They had an adventurous experience there. They later return back home. Unbeknownst to Peter and Lina, a couple of their Candonite friends, Joe and Angela, got transported too including the evil Goaltan and his minions, the Peblars. So this is where this book comes in ..Joe and Angela searches for Peter in hopes that he can help them get back home to Maple Town. Then come to find out that the gang (Peter, Lina, Joe, and Angela) will have to work together again to fight Goaltan (and the Peblars). This time around, Peter and Lina's families get involve and we (the readers) find out a secret! The story continues with the journey they all had in the battle and adventure to saving earth and such.

I think young kids will enjoy this series. They'll find fun characters and exciting adventure. Also will learn the value of friendship, family history, and courage.

Oh, Lina and family are Filipino so there's a few Filipino terms. Cool! *I suspect the author and/or someone in her family is Filipino???

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT!!! 13 Jun. 2012

Cover Art
I love the cover art in fact when I asked my kids what they thought they said so many fun things. I ask them usually before we start reading based on the cover art what this book is going to be about, they came up with some great guesses based on Bellyache the first in this series. Favorite part about the cover was the hair.

Why We loved it
We loved that Peter was on a mission to protect all the candy stores that Goaltan was out to destroy including his Papa's candy store. Headache has vivid, wonderful characters that are carried over from Maple Town. The Candy Land Gang (my kids) read this book through the night. Even I wanted to keep going, the way Crystal writes is epic for children. We cannot wait for more of Peter's adventures by Crystal Marcos.

"*I received a hardcover/paperback/eBook copy/ARC of this book for free to review from the author/publisher; this in no way influenced my review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own."
5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and FUN! 29 April 2013

Headache ~ The Hair-Raising Sequel by Crystal Marcos is highly recommend for those children who love to use their imagination! I have not read Bellyache, but after reading Headache I would not hesitate to read Bellyache.

The story Headache takes place on earth despite the main characters being aliens, which are sweets. No I don't mean sweet as in cool or awesome. I mean sweets as in gum-drops and cup-cakes! LOL! Now for me it took a while for to wrap my head around these walking around and talking in all seriousness of being afraid of humans and our pets. But once you let go of your practical-ness you can actually feel the frightening situations these two characters get in and their very humorous ways they get themselves out of them.

No sooner did I find myself having fun with the story, I was then set in the main dilemma of the chase! The sweets had paired themselves up with some old friends and were preparing themselves for an all out war with the evil, monstrous Rock candy!
How will a couple of little sweets and some nerdy little humans win a war against these merciless hulks? Well I guess you'll have to read it to find out.

Oh and by the way...Children have no problems jumping right into characters with their imaginations As for myself I found it quite refreshing once I unlocked that childhood door. We give 2 thumbs up or if you rather 5 stars to Crystal Marcos, Headache.
4.0 out of 5 stars A delicious sequel 8 Feb. 2013

Headache the Hair-Raising Sequel to Bellyache is a wonderful tale of facing your fears and working together. In this second installment we watch Peter and Lina develop courage to defeat the evil Goaltan drawing on the knowledge and lessons they have learned on their trip to Maple town, along with Nana's memories of her visit to Honeyville. I absolutely love the imagery in this book. I wish I could visit the toy shop, to play around in edible foam, ride one floor up on a pogo stick and sit at a glow-in-the-dark drink bar, to sample a sarparilla drilla, served so cold that it comes with a drill. The Candonite children were adorable and one would have to have great self control not to be tempted to eat one of them. I loved the ending and Papa's new sweet shop is so delightful I wish I could visit it in a certain famous theme park in the future.
A delightfully innocent read that will have you cheering the characters on and wishing you could sample some of the delights along the way.
