But what’s s got them even more nervous is the distinct possibility that there could be a severe shortage of turkey sandwiches this Christmas, and to some members of the Kushnick Tribe, there is a certain sense of déjà vu to it all.To add to the confusion, Filbert Monkston and Gordon Quigg have gone missing and the leader of the Kushnick Tribe, Baron Floppy, has gone out to look for them. They were last seen on Tuesday night fleeing from a post quiz bar brawl at The Clay Bottle with two complete strangers giving everybody the general impression that they were up to no good.

Minology II The Disquisitive Saga Of Filbert Monkston Reviews
I loved the first Minology novel set inside the head of a man called Will. The ending promised a follow up, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that the second novel in the Will introduces, not just a new location but a whole host of new characters too.Filbert is set in the Gutlands - or the stomach to us humans, and Mark Murphy has found a delightfully charming way of describing the digestive process and what it all means too the billions of Min living inside the Will.The characters include the same mix of sensible lead characters, loveable rogues and the dastardly baddies.Told with great humour and imagination, this story should capture the hearts of young adults everywhere. Murphy writes in a pleasant voice, vividly describing his world and its inhabitants so that you really feel like you're there. I can't wait to read more in this series.
I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.What if scientists have been wrong about the way the human body works? What if there are thousands of tiny creatures controlling each and every organ, making sure everything in the body is in working order? This is the idea that Mark Murphy has based his books upon. These creatures are called min and not only do they help the body to function; they have their own lives to deal with as well. Minology II: The Disquisitive Saga of Filbert Monkston is the second of the Minology stories. Filbert is a seventeen-year-old min who has grown up in the Gutlands as part of the Kushnick tribe. However he is beginning to question their religion. Why do they have these beliefs? Why do they sacrifice food? An argument with his father sparks off a series of events that cause trouble for many min. After storming off, Filbert and his friend Gordon come into contact with a strange group of travellers. Not realizing how dangerous they are, Filbert and Gordon get drawn into a trap. Baron Floppy, Filbert’s father, on the other hand, regrets the outburst at his son and is extremely worried when he never returns home. Along with a search party he goes out to find his son. As the story leads up to reuniting the father and son an old mystery is uncovered and finally solved after many years of it being left unanswered.As with the first Minology book, this is a lighthearted read containing a lot of humour. Many of the min are not the most intelligent of creatures resulting in rather a lot of misunderstandings which can be particularly amusing. The storyline itself can be quite gripping as the mystery unravels. Although Minology II does not exactly follow on from the previous novel, it would be handy to read the books in order as the first story provides more information about who the min are and a little about the body they are inhabiting.Overall, Minology II is a good short read, however could have done with another proof read before publication. It is a shame that the writer cannot tell the difference between the words ‘were’ and ‘where’!
