Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Joss is the seventh son of the Supreme Overlord of the Universe, and all he gets to do is deliver pies. That's right: pies. Of course these pies actually hold the secrets of the universe between their buttery crusts, but they're still pies.

Joss comes from a family of overachievers, and is happy to let his older brothers shine. But when Earth suddenly disappears, Joss is tasked with the not-so-simple job of bringing it back. With the help of an outspoken girl from Earth named Annika, Joss embarks on the adventure of a lifetime and learns that the universe is an even stranger place than he'd imagined.

Review:

"Full of fascinating science and clever humor, Mass's story shines as bright as the stars of Joss's universe. A high-stakes extraterrestrial adventure that's as exciting as it is fun." Publishers Weekly, starred review

Review:

"Could be a Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for kids....Science and absurdity frolic together to gleeful effect." Kirkus

Review:

"The humorous banter and interesting physics factoids keep readers entertained....Mass's latest [is] a unique, mind-stretching title for science-fiction lovers, and the entertaining high jinks and evolving relationship between Joss and Annika give it an even wider appeal." School Library Journal
