This is a great next book if your reader:
Is a gamer, and likes to immerse themselves in the world of computer games.
Likes Jumanji or Ready Player One
Enjoys futuristic time travel settings.
Would find the real-life historical heroes placed in Wonderscape's  fascinating worlds. Influential people who helped shape the world we live in today feature throughout the story - from Issac Newton, Mary Shelly, and Thomas Eddison, to the lesser known Wangari Maathai and Tomoe Gozen, to name but a few.
Wants rich characters whose relationship grows from having nothing in common to loyal friends.

This is a great next book if your reader likes:
Portal stories like Jumanji.

A twist or surprise at the end.

The Field Guide: Spiderwick Chronicles

Your child will enjoy story The Field Guide: Spiderwick Chronicles if:
Loves magic, adventure and intrigue (think fairies, goblins and trolls)
Gets drawn into a narrative through illustrations designed to provide extra detail. Tony DiTerlizzi blows me away; he brings the magic to life with his gothic style pencil drawings.
Will enjoy getting to really know characters and how they develop.
Wants a book that is fairly short and easy to read. As in all the books in The Spiderwick Chronicles series, The Field Guide can develop self-confidence and reading stamina. It is really important for a reluctant reader that books are finished and enjoyed before the interest in them is lost.
