Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Joules and Kevin Rockmans parents drop them off at Camp Whatsitooya on their way to an International Spamathon, the twins expect a summer of marshmallows, campfires, and canoe trips. What they do not expect is to defend the earth from an invasion of sugar-addicted, murderous, seven-foot-tall rabbits from another galaxy. Happily, the Rockman twins, veteran watchers of the Late, Late, Late Creepy Show for Insomniacs, are unusually well-prepared for dealing with monstrous beings from outer space. If only their fellow campers were so lucky.

Andrea Beaty, author of several very funny picture books and a mysterious novel, here reaches new heights of hilarity and verbal dexterity in a novel sure to become a camp—ba-dum-dum—classic.

Review:

"In this screwy, nonsensical thriller, 11-year-old twins Joules and Kevin are unwillingly deposited at Camp Whats-itooya, an unusual summer camp that is about to be attacked by giant alien bunnies (aka 'Fluffs'). Led by a naturephobic scientist, a down-on-his-luck surfer, and a beehive-haired lady with a craft fetish, the twins are joined by three giggling look-alike campers dubbed 'SmellyCat' (for Sam, Ellie, and Cat), and Nelson, who exuberantly promotes the virtues of the Plumbing Channel. As the bunny threat grows, Nelson and the twins hatch a plan involving Spam (the edible kind) and freeze-dried ice cream to thwart them from taking over the camp and the world. Interspersed with parenthetical asides, directives to the reader ('Those of you who avoided reading Table 1 probably ought to be brave and read this one.... Go ahead. We'll amuse ourselves by singing while you read. La la la la la...'), and Santat's (Chicken Dance) kinetic comic book — style panel art, Beaty's (Cicada Summer) storytelling is lighthearted and fast-paced. Though the story may not linger much past the last page, her unconventional and entertaining narrative make it a wholly fun read. Ages 8 — 12." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Gleaning unique insights from endless viewings of classic monster movies, Jill and Kevin Rockman become the ideal kid heroes to save the earth from an invasion by sugar-loving, rabbit-like creatures from the Mallow Galaxy. By the author of Iggy Peck. 15,000 first printing.
