The plot of this book builds directly on the events of the first volume. There's a pretty solid recap of events, relayed in a natural way, so even if you haven't read book one confusion won't be too much of an issue. The problem instead is emotional distance. Without that history there's no connection to the characters and their concerns. It's complex world building and a surprisingly serious plot.

This book is the second in a series, The Royal Rabbits of London, but it can also be read as a standalone. 
Shylo the rabbit is small, but he is very brave. He has helped to save the Queen from being embarrassed by the evil Ratzis, and now he belongs to the Royal Rabbits of London, who are bound to protect the royal family. The Ratzis have a new plot to take over the throne now: they want to embarrass the Queen and the President of the United States in front of the world. Shylo and his friends must work together to defeat the Ratzis. Never underestimate a small creature!
I enjoyed this book very much. It was a cute, quick read with plenty of fun pictures to supplement the story. There were many funny moments as well as good lessons weaved into the story. The supplemental section at the end of the book provides facts about royalty and England in general as well as the United States presidency, which is an excellent resource for middle grade students. The gaseous rats were a little too much for me, but I imagine that middle grade students will enjoy the flatulence and humor. I highly recommend this book to students looking for a fun book to read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. A positive review was not required, and all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
