After being teased one too many times at school, Ignatius MacFarland decides to build a rocket. Maybe extraterrestrials are nicer than his classmates! But when his rocket takes an explosive wrong turn, Ignatius ends up in another frequency run by former English-teacher-turned-dictator, Chester Arthur. Mr. Arthur has taken the art, culture, and advancements of our world, shared them with this new frequency, and convinced the creatures around him that he's a genius. It's up to Iggy and Karen, another trapped earthling, to expose Mr. Arthur for the fraud that he is-and to hopefully make it home alive.
Part comedy, part science fiction, and part fantasy, this debut novel, with line art by talented newcomer Peter Chan, makes being a geek, well, kind of cool.

I PICKED THIS BOOK UP IN THE USED BOOK STORE. I READ IT BECAUSE IT LOOKED STRANGE. IT WAS A GREAT BOOK WITH AMAZING ARTWORK TROUGH OUT. THERE ARE TONS OF FIGHT SCENES BUT NONE OF THEM GET GRAPHIC. IT IS VERY FUNNY. BUT I HAVE TO WARN YOU THERE IS SOME MENTION OF SWEARING BUT IT'S REPALCED BY WORDS LIKE FUDGE. THIS BOOK KEEPS YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT LIKE JAMES BOND BUT IT'S FASTER. THIS BOOK IS PERFECT FOR PEOPLE OF 9 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER. A MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
