The top-secret interdimensional notes of Buttons McGinty Book 2 written by Rhys Darby is a book about the adventures of a 12-year-old boy looking for his parents that are missing, presumed missing in another dimension far from earth.

Buttons enters a portal to the other dimension in search of his parents. He meets a number of interesting characters on his travels, some friendly and some not so. The queen Zankerflorna and her army of Helm guards and Yowies have plans for universal dominance but Buttons and the dorm 4 gang are trying to find Buttons mum and stop Zankerflorna's plan. Buttons has the Blade Of Runsun which Zankerflorna needs to fulfil her plan.

The Colonel, a gigantic owl, Hunu the Forrest Warrier, her donkey Mr Plops and Ron Lozenger befriend Buttons and all in their own way help Buttons get into the Helm to foil Zankerflorna's plan and to save his Dad.

We found the book a little hard to follow in the beginning as it is written in the view of Buttons as he experiences Helmshirevilleland. It jumped around a bit but once Buttons had explored the town more and got into his mission it was a little easier to follow.

It was interesting to read a book with kiwi slang used and the little notes to readers not from New Zealand explaining the meaning of the term. This added interest to the book for us as it was written in terms my son related to. I also loved the flowers Buttons draws to calm himself down. I thought this was a cool touch to the story.

Overall, my son didn't get into this book as much as some of the other books he reads. Although he has read it a second time. $18 is reasonable for a book like this but I'm not sure if I would recommend this book as one of the top books I would recommend to someone looking for a book aimed at this age group.
