“Somebody Stop Ivy Pocket,” by Caleb Krisp, is a really good book!

“Somebody Stop Ivy Pocket” is the second book in Caleb Krisp’s Ivy Pocket series. You would have to read the first book, “Anyone But Ivy Pocket,” to understand what is going on in the second book.

Ivy Pocket had gotten adopted by two coffin makers, Mr. and Mrs. Snagsby, and Ivy couldn’t have been any happier than that. But Ivy was surprised that Mr. and Mrs. Snagsby could handle her sassy, sarcastic attitude. Ivy thought that they would have returned her back to the orphanage by now after all the things she had done so far.

Mother Snagsby is hard on her and makes Ivy do lots of chores, but Ivy barely does them. She believes Mother Snagsby is trying to make her become a better person or be like her daughter, Gretel, who left for school.

Ivy Pocket’s life was just getting better by the second, until one day the Clock Diamond showed something Ivy wasn’t expecting.The Clock Diamond is a magical necklace that shows Ivy the future or the past, but she can’t ask the Clock Diamond to show her what she wants to see, it will just show her what it wants her to see. The Clock Diamond showed Ivy a girl screaming for someone to help her. But when Ivy saw the girl’s face it shocked her so much that it made her shiver down to the bone. Ivy had thought her close friend was deceased and long gone after what the Clock Diamond had done to her.  Now Ivy feels responsible to save her friend and figure out what happened to her. But, along the way to saving her dear friend, Ivy has a side project that has to do with Mrs. Snagsby and a missing man.

Will Ivy be able to save her friend in time? Does Ivy figure out what happened to the missing man and what Mrs. Snagsby has to do with it? Get this book and read it to find out!

I would recommend this book to ages 10 and above because of the vocabulary the author uses in this book. Boys and girls will both love this book.
