Ruthie and Jack thought that their adventures in the Thorne Rooms were over . . . until miniatures from the rooms start to disappear. Is it the work of the art thief who's on the loose in Chicago? Or has someone else discovered the secret of the Thorne Rooms' magic? Ruthie and Jack's quest to stop the thief takes them from modern day Chicago to 1937 Paris to antebellum South Carolina. But as more items disappear, including the key that allows them to shrink and access the past worlds, what was once just an adventure becomes a life and death race against the clock. Can Ruthie and Jack catch the thief and help the friends they meet on the way before the magic—and the rooms—are destroyed forever? Fans of magic, mystery, and adventure will love this rollicking sequel to Marianne Malone's The Sixty-Eight Rooms. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ariel | 1/27/2014

    " Like the first one, the premise of the book is irresistible to anyone who knows the Art Institute of Chicago's Thorne Rooms, 68 dollhouse rooms perfectly constructed snd decorated in a wide variety of periods and places: to shrink, go into the rooms and from them out to the times and places they represent. In this end, someone is stealing the key objects that make each room come to life. But the writing is not as good as the ideas and the mystery is not very mysterious at all. Come on, we need a few good red herrings. Also the thief, who leaves green apples wherever she steals, is not very well explained. "

    " Fun but too young for me "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skyler | 12/14/2013

    " Second in the series. Cute mystery for kids. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meaghan | 11/30/2013

    " Very well done! I am very pleased with this second book in the 68 Rooms series. I hope Mrs. Malone decides to write another one as she has a talent for making history come alive in a most creative and fun way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 10/3/2013

    " The first book was sooo good. This was kind of just more of the same thing, not much new to keep it interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 9/6/2013

    " A sweet, fast read that's perfect for 5th-6th graders. This story does a good job of blending history, art, and adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill Veenstra | 6/16/2013

    " Not quite as good as 68 Rooms, but still a great story for kids! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 5/24/2013

    " Good follow-up to the Sixty-eight room, but the first book was better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 12/21/2012

    " Fun book. Really good for ages 11-14. Creative and has some history in it too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha Tai | 11/23/2012

    " I had a hard time getting into the second book but I did enjoy the mystery of the story. The book was a little predictable since I guessed the bad guy pretty early in the story. I am looking forward to the next book. I'm guessing the next book will have to do with Phoebe in Charleston, SC. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Silas | 8/24/2012

    " A sequel to 68 rooms, a very good adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 8/7/2012

    " Great continuation of the story started in the first book. Again, we have intrigue, mystery and magic to keep us turning pages. I could definitely pick up another book eagerly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aubrey | 7/5/2012

    " These books are so much fun. The stories are imaginative and the writing in this second book is better than the first. I couldn't put it down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lenna | 5/23/2012

    " I feel like this book should be titled Stealing Ideas. It has very similar characteristics to the Magic Treehouse series; including setting, plot and even character names/traits. "
