Overview

The plan was simple. Ethan Cheeseman, along with his three smart, polite, and relatively odor-free children, would travel back in time to end a family curse and save their mother. Now that the LVR (a super-secret time machine) is working, it’s easy peasy. Except they didn’t account for one basic rule of science: Murphy’s Law — if something can go wrong, it will.

The LVR crashes, with a meteor-sized hole in its roof. They’ve made it to 1668, but they’re stuck in the middle of nowhere, without a way back home, and someone thinks they’re weetches — er, witches. Could it get any worse? How about when they encounter a pirate ship, a haunted castle, and two mysterious visitors — one there to rescue the family, the other, mmm . . . not so much.

Our trusty narrator, Dr. Soup, has a ton of unsolicited advice for listeners but not a lot to say to help the Cheesemans. Just this one thing:

GOOD LUCK.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Claudia Mills
Dr. Cuthbert Hubert Egbert Soup (and, yes, the text is indeed copyrighted under the name of Dr. Cuthbert Soup) returns in this sequel to A Whole Nother Story with the next installment of the adventures of the time-traveling Cheeseman family (and the band of reformed pirates who accompany them, together with one wise-cracking stuffed sock monkey who offers his own pithy observations on everything), as they head to the year 1668, where they hope to be able to return a cursed goblet to its rightful owner before traveling to the more recent past to prevent the events that led to the murder of the three children's mother. Despite the macabre urgency of their mission, there is no more melancholy here than there is for Lemony Snicket's bereft Baudelaires. What the reader gets instead is a French-accented "weetch-catcher," a Danish-accented pseudo-duke, makeshift beards, a plagiarizing ghost, and frequent memos of unsolicited advice from Dr. Cuthbert himself: e.g, "If your psychic fox terrier growls at [a mysterious strange light racing across the sky], you had best run for the hills or, at the very least, hide behind some uncommonly fat orangutans" and "For those of you who choose to slip into the past, I hope very much that you do like what you find, because there is the very real possibility that you may be stuck there forever." The incessantly comic commentary is a bit hit-or-miss but over the course of these nonstop rollicking adventures, there are hits, and hilarity, aplenty. Reviewer: Claudia Mills, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—Picking up where A Whole Nother Story (2009) left off, this installment (2010, both Bloomsbury) in the Cheeseman family saga by Dr. Cuthbert Soup finds Ethan and his three children hurtling towards another adventure in their time machine, the Luminal Velocity Regulator (LVR). Their goal is to travel back in time to prevent the death of their beloved wife and mother. However, a glitch in the LVR has them crash-landing into the 17th century, where they have to outrun both witch-hunters and pirates in the midst of trying to figure out how to get back on track. Their journey ends as it began-eventfully—with a doppelganger duke from Denmark and a trip further back in time in the hopes that they can travel full circle back to where they began. This is a quirky, madcap tale, and Dick Hill does a hilarious job as narrator. He voices all characters deftly, moving seamlessly from an 8-year-old boy to a grizzled Scottish seaman to a Danish duke who can barely speak English. With such a variety of insane characters and Hill's ability to make them come alive, there are many laugh-out-loud moments. Although this title stands fairly well on its own, it is especially recommended for libraries where the first book is popular.—Amy Holland, Irondequoit Public Library, Rochester, NY

Gold Star Award Winner! Starting where the first book left off, Ethan Cheeseman and his three smart, polite, and relatively odor-free children are traveling back in time to the year 1668 to stop an ancient family curse and save their mother. To do so, they'll need the help of a group of misfit circus performer/pirates to return a cursed goblet to its rightful owner, the ruler of Denmark. Easy, right? Wrong. Their landing in 1668 is nothing short of bumpy, and the time machine needs repairs. To succeed in stopping the curse and repairing the machine, the misfits set out to restore the goblet while the Cheesmans fix their ride home. The situation only gets worse when the family's archenemy reappears to destroy them. Having thought they left him tied up in the back of a school bus for police, the family doesn't recognize the now 15 years older - and more cunning - Mr. Five, Mrs. Cheeseman's murderer. Well-disguised as an assistant to a friend and former professor of Ethan's, he is in the perfect place to carry out his unknown dastardly plans. Will the Cheesemans break the curse? Will they figure out who Mr. Five is before it's too late? ANOTHER WHOLE NOTHER STORY is a funny, quick read for fans of time travel tales and action-adventure stories. The characters are well-developed and even more charming than in the first book. The plot is well-developed and fairly fast-paced. With a sock puppet that says funny, sometimes impolite comments; a really cute tour guide who causes the oldest male Cheeseman child, Chip, to constantly make a fool of himself; and other antics that readers will never expect, this book is a great addition to any collection. Just make sure to read A WHOLE NOTHER STORY first.

Well I'm back again! If you aren't aware there's a fanfiction oscars going on right now. If you haven't voted head on over to fantasy oscars res 2-8 and vote in each of the categories. Let's try to bring one (or more) home. If we do as a celebration I will post a part everyday for a week. Anyway, remember to leave feedback to this part at Samuel Knight res 1 and any questions at res 2. This part will be in Jose's p.o.v. On with the story! --- I woke up the minute I heard shouting. Julia, Cary and Harriet were already awake. "Quick everyone get ready for plan C!" Julia whispered. We stood there acting like we were going to fight. The Roman soldiers rushed over ready to attack. There were about twenty them, and they each carried an Imperial gold sword and sheild. "Stand down!" The leader of there group ordered. We all dropped our weapons. Julia ran over and put on here scared face. "Oh thank gods you guys are here! Please get us away from these Graecus scum!" "Julia Reed you betrayed the Legion!" "No, the daughter of Aphrodite used charm speak on the three of us. We're still loyal to Rome!" The soldier looked very persuaded. "Alright, pick up your weapons and help us capture these Greeks." We picked up our weapons and walked over to join our former allies. I looked at the faces of our group. They all looked shocked, saddened, or angry. They aren't aware of our plan though. Julia continued to act like she was flirting with the soldier. She was amazing to say the least. They way she batted her sea green eyes and played with her blond hair. She really was beautiful. I stopped staring at her and got into position. I had to focus for this plan to work. Cary and Harriet were already in position. Julia was running her hand along the soldier's face, when she gave the signal and threw an elbow to his jaw and uppercutted him. Cary and Harriet were already in action. They were each taking down five or six soldiers. I jumped into action and took down my group of soldiers and in just a few minutes we had a pile of unconcious Romans before us. Julia looked around with satisfaction. "Great job guys! Plan charm worked perfectly." The rest of our group stood there befuddled. "Wait when did you guys plan that?" John asked. "We worked on that back at our camp. Pretty clever huh?" Well judging the looks on their faces they were pretty amazed. I looked up and saw a group of eagles flying overhead. "Guys, I hate to interrupt, but we've got trouble!" Cary looked up and nodded. "This isn't good. Quickly, someone grab Sam and-" She was cut off as an eagle swooped down and picked up Sam's limp body. "Someone get that eagle!" Julia ordered. Reese was already up in a tree, but the eagle was too high up for her to attack. Odyn was about to call down a bolt of lightning, but I had to force her not to. "If you do that Sam will fall and most likely die!" The eagles flew off into the distance with the rest of us hot in pursuit. --- Well what'd you think? Let me know. Next part at No Other Story. - SK
