This art book for Cloudy's sequel is just as good as the first art book.

This is a very well done companion art book to the movie Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. It's hardcover with 144 pages. The front cover is actually a gatefold that when opened up shows a beautiful landscape painting of the Swallow Falls with the wonderful food creatures. On the back of that cover is a 3-page colour script, essentially the storyboard from start to the ending.

The book covers the characters and creature designs, and the production designs for the environment and props.

Every page is filled with wonderful art.

As most of the characters are featured in the earlier art book, the emphasis here is the commentary on how they have changed since we last saw them. The extra characters are Chester V, Barb, Thinkquanauts, Sentinels of Safety and the other Live Corp employees.

The creature designs are for the foodimals, the complex food-based organisms (or the mutant food-inspired creatures as I would call them) created by the Food Replicator. Those foodimal designs are great, whimsical and creative. There are lots of hilariously cute foodimals with funny names, such as Cheespider, Tacodile, Watermelophant, Shrimpanzees and more. Their designs are almost as wacky as those from The Croods except they are made of food here.

Environment art are beautiful too. There are San Franjose city, Live Corp and the evolved Swallow Falls. The colour palette and shapes look inspired by Mary Blair and Maurice Noble.

In addition to the art, a scratch-and-sniff stickers booklet is included. The moment you open it, you can smell something sweet. The stickers are of the adorable foodimals. Each foodimal will have their own smell based on the food or fruit they are created from.

This book is a sumptuous visual treat. Recommended for fans of the film and art.

Alright, some technicalities to point out. There were two publishers for the first art book. It seems there are also two publishers for this book, namely Cameron + Company and Titan Books. I wanted to point this out because Titan Books left out some content in their version of the first book, namely the scent stick booklet and other stuff. I'm not sure if they did the same here as I only have the Cameron + Company version.

And from what I surmise, the Cameron + Company's published book is for the USA audience, and Titan Books is for the rest.

Sorry, but i can't say much about the contents of the book as it was a present from the wish list, to my son and he was very pleased to receive it, as he is at Uni, will be when he returns, to do his last year.
