Publisher's Summary

After being teased one too many times, 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 frequenaut, 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 makes being a geek, well, kind of cool.

We couldn't help laughing

First, the reader, who also happens to be the author, is great. He was able to supply just the right amount of sarcasm to the dialog. The story was funny and silly but interesting enough for a wide range of ages (10 y.o. 13 y.o. and mom all liked it). There were, surprisingly, some deeper issues to think about, like cultural sensitivity, but presented in a very funny way.

This book spurs a child's imagination

This story is so good that it is difficult to believe it's Paul Feig's first book for children. I'd classify it as humorous science fiction that is likely to be enjoyed most by children between ages 7 and 12. Read the publisher's review for more details. Author Paul Feig also narrates, and he does so wonderfully.
