Headache by Crystal Marcos, YR, 2012, Kindle ebook edition, rating=3
Source: purchased for free

The magical adventure continues in the spine-tingling fantasy-adventure, HEADACHE: The Hair-Raising Sequel to BELLYACHE! Crystal Marcos delivers another whimsically entertaining escapade for ages seven and up. Readers will delight in more sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat, non-stop action adventures of Peter and his best friend, Lina.
When Peter Fisher sets out for school one morning, he has no idea that trouble is stirring in his hometown. With the unexpected arrival of his new Candonite friends from Maple Town, Peter and Lina have extra help saving their beloved town and loved ones from the clutches of the one villain they had hoped they would never see again. Humorous and thought provoking, this unforgettably entertaining story teaches a valuable lesson about standing up and facing one’s fears. (Goodreads)

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???
