Jim Springman Book 2. Scholastic Australia, 2011. ISBN 9781741697858.
(Age 10+) Queen's Port has become imagination central. It's turned into the Realm of Glory and Jim Springman's older sister Ingrid is stuck in the middle of it. He has to help her, but to do that he has to go into the dragon's lair to get her out. Then he needs to make her remember she is really Ingrid Springman the author of Realm of Glory and his sister not the Bandit Queen Evavich a murderous villain and the leader of the Bugbears in the Realm of Glory. But with people out to kill him, monsters out to eat him, the local necromancer wanting him back in school, his brother not wanting to help him and the anchor pills starting to wear off it won't be as easy as it seems. As if they were his only problems his friends Ruthie and Josie Cobbler just keep dragging him deeper and deeper.
This book is hard to get in to: it took me half the book and a dragon to get in to it. It's a good book with a good ending and I can honestly say that I didn't realise it was the second in a series. The first book in the series is Jim Springman and the Realm of Glory, but the second book has been written in a way that makes it seem like it isn't actually a series.
