Gr 4-7–This second entry from the “Finniverse” series continues where the first volume left off. Finn is saved from the Time Rangers by an older version of himself. But Old Finn needs Finn to help destroy a terrible monster called Paradox, who is obsessed with revenge against Finn’s father. Old Finn promises to tell Finn where his father is, if he agrees to help destroy Paradox. He is given a pair of cowboy pajamas that are actually a time machine, and told not to take them off, or the time line will reset and anything they changed in the past will affect the present. But the pajamas malfunction, leaving Finn and his friends stranded in the distant past and then the far distant future. An amazingly fun romp filled with humor and heart, this is a series that is sure to gain popularity. This installment doesn’t stand alone, and readers are better served by reading the series opener. Buckley also throws in nods to classic movies like The Matrix, Back to the Future, and Planet of the Apes. The plot is crafted in such a masterly way; the final twist is devastating, and fans will beg for the next volume.
VERDICT A must-buy for middle grade sci-fi fans.
