In this charming sequel to the classic Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Kate and Henry eagerly await Grandpa's return from a vacation that his postcard says has been one of the best and most unusual ever. Thinking about that postcard Kate drifts off to sleep that night and...
"With Henry as my co-pilot..." she visits the strange land of Chewandswallow -- a land characterized by massive amounts of food, immense carrots, leafy jungles of lettuce, and tuna fish sandwiches so gigantic they have to be moved by helicopter. What the people of Chewandswallow are doing with all that food is most intriguing of all. Fans of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs will applaud this return trip with its underlying message of generosity and a world community.

In this sequel to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Grandpa has gone on vacation. Henry and Kate highly anticipate his return. When Kate goes to bed, she dreams of Chewandswallow. She dreams that she flies there in an airplane with Henry. People are cleaning up the massive pile up of food. These people have created the Fallen Food Company. They ship the leftovers to all over the world wherever food is needed and they do it for free. Kate wakes up. When Grandpa gets home, Henry and Kate tuck him in with a bedtime story about the dream Kate had.

The illustrations are the same as in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. They are complex drawings and interesting to look at.

This story does not have the same excitement and zing as the first book. It simply revisits the story from book one with an added twist. This is a very simple solution to world hungry and wouldn't it be wonderful if it were reality instead of fantasy. Even though this doesn't hold the interest as well as book one, humongous food is still a fun topic that kids will enjoy and the pictures are not to be missed.

It's Kate's turn to see Chewandswallow.
