3.0 out of 5 stars Fails in Comparison 22 Mar 2008
By Trent J. Doerges - Published on
Earlier this year, I read Skeleton Man by Joseph Bruchac with one of my lower reading groups and loved it. It was a great mix of Native American myth/culture and mystery. I found that my students loved it as well, so when a fourth grade teacher bought the sequel for me to have, I was excited to read it.

And then I read it.

The Return of Skeleton Man fails in comparison to its first installment. For the first half of the book, Molly basically recounts her story from the first novel telling the reader over and over what they probably already know of the story. I found that her parents, not kidnapped this time by Skeleton Man, did not add to the story in the least.

Finally, when Skeleton Man made his appearance in the last third of the book, it was anticlimactic. The basic running through the woods away form the bad guy hit its peak with a lackluster showdown in the woods.

I do still like the fact that Molly shows a strong female character and role model for children. She uses her brain and faith to overcome obstacles, but this second installment of the series (I am assuming there will be another one, even after the author bashes horror movie series that showcase a mythical and invincible antagonist) falls short of expectations.

4.0 out of 5 stars quick read 23 July 2007
By Melissa Sack - Published on
This is the sequel to Skeleton Man. Molly escaped the skeloton man last year and is trying to get on with he life. While on vacation with her parents the skeleton man returns to try and lure Molly to him again! This she fights back and is able to escape him!

I would recommend this book to people that like mysteries because it is so interesting and it will give you something to think about.

It shows that girls can be strong and solve problems.

My students LOVE The Skeleton Man. So when I found this sequel, I had to read it. My students and I agreed that it was very slow in getting into the action. It did not hold them captive like the other one did. I am glad we read it, but I doubt I will read this aloud in school again.

the plot was good but when Molly was a hostage and escaped from the skeleton man the chase was boring
1.0 out of 5 stars The Return of Skeleton man 20 April 2013
By Shayla - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I chose this rating because the book does not have a good description of what should be described and a bad description that should be described the book is the worst book I've ever read I'll never read any of Joseph Bruchac's books again.
