Review by Booklist Reviews

The crew of the interstellar hot dog stand Neon Wiener return, ready to foil another one of evil Queen Dagger's dastardly schemes. This epic, heavily illustrated follow-up to Cosmoe's Weiner Getaway (2015) has just as many heroic feats, narrow squeaks, mighty explosions, monster fights, and crude jokes as the first adventure. Dashingly coiffured Earth boy Cosmoe, his two alien sidekicks, and Princess Dagger, the semievil daughter of the aforementioned queen, literally hitch their wagon to a traveling circus that turns out to be capturing aliens to create an army of mind-controlled monsters. Time to, as Cosmoe puts it, "STOP THE BAD DUDES AND SAVE THE DAY!" Readers of the Galactic Hot Dogs webcomic, from which the series is spun, will know they are in for quite a romp.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 4–7—The heroes of this series are back for another space traveling adventure. Cosmoe, along with Princess Dagger and Big Humphree, encounters a mysterious carnival run by the eerie Crostini. When the group stop a horrific monster from destroying the carnival, they get jobs at the circus. Cosmoe finds out that Crostini is in cahoots with an evil figure from their past, and it's up to the Galactic Hot Dogs to foil the diabolical plot and save the universe. Fans of the first book and the original source material (a popular online presence) will eat this up. Those who haven't read the first title will be lost, as there is little to no background information given. Readers of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and those still obsessed with all things Star Wars will enjoy this silly romp through space. [Page ].

Review by Publisher Summary 2

Cosmoe, Princess Dagger, Humphree, and the gang are back for another wild space adventure in the second hilarious illustrated novel of the Galactic Hot Dogs series, which Lincoln Peirce calls an &;an insanely entertaining, eye-popping adventure.&;What could go better with wieners than a flying space circus? Nothing! Which is why Humphree&;s all jazzed up at the chance to sell Galactic Hot Dogs as the official food of Crostini&;s Cosmic Carnival and Wonder Circus train. Cosmoe&;s not entirely convinced&;but once his skills as a monster tamer are unveiled, the deal is done and the Neon Wiener is officially hooked onto the train.Only things aren&;t quite what they seem at this circus, and pretty soon Cosmoe realizes he and his buddies are in more danger than ever. To get to the bottom of it all, they have to travel somewhere pretty familiar, providing a glimpse at last into Cosmoe&;s past and how he ended up aboard the Wiener in the first place.
