Overview

Stan and Devin thought they had finally succeeded in their mission - Earth has been chosen as the official vacation planet of Pan. The Pants have started coming to Earth for the joyous sensation of sneezing through their nasal processors. But there is a very big problem - they are not allergic to anything on Earth! The only solution is for Stan and Devin to go back in time to ancient Egypt and rescue an allergy-causing goldenrod. Can the heroic duo make the Pants sneeze before it's too late?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-In this manic science-fiction laugh-fest, Devin and his friend Stan try to save the tourist trade to Earth from Stan's planet Pan by traveling back to ancient Egypt. The plot particulars of this romp are neither believable nor important. Suffice it to say that there are puns, gags, gross-out jokes, and other silly events. For those unfamiliar with this series, the alien race of Pants is superintelligent due to the nasal-processor computers lodged in its members' noses. These processors are accessed via a finger, thus making the Pants look like yucky nose-pickers to ignorant Earthlings. Stan and Devin are close friends though Devin wants to be cool (he has a long list of Rules of Coolness) and Stan is a total dweeb. This is a slickly marketed and designed series, appealing to those who have an insatiable demand for "Lafs." Readers might be better served by Jon Scieszka's "Time Warp Trio" series (Viking), but Korman's titles will do as popular, lightweight material to get nonreaders reading.-Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
