One of the biggest thrills of my life was the publication of my first book, matched only by the publication of my second book. Since its original hardcover release in 2006, Lunchbox and the Aliens has been featured in the Scholastic Book Fairs/Book Clubs, popped up in a lot of school and public libraries, and made thousands and thousands of kids snort and giggle and shoot root beer from their noses (hint: use caution when drinking root beer while reading this book--I can't be held responsible for the mess!).
A brief synopsis for the uninitiated:
Lunchbox is an ordinary basset hound until he's abducted by a pair of crazy aliens and accidentally made intelligent. With his new knowledge, he's sent back to Earth to build a machine to make alien food (known as froonga) from one of the planet's most abundant resources: garbage.
Things get complicated when Lunchbox involves Nate, his 11-year old owner. Not only do they end up having to deal with a crooked politician, an evil garbage man, and weird alien technology, but the fate of the world may rest on whether or not Lunchbox can ever learn to catch a Frisbee!
To buy hardcover copies (autographed by yours truly) of Lunchbox and the Aliens and its sequel, Froonga Planet, follow this link. We only have a few hardcovers left in stock, so don't wait!
You can also purchase regular, unsigned copies at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble. Froonga Planet is also available for Nook and Kindle!
Stay tuned for more silliness!
