Join Zack on his epic journey across the Great Windy Desert and through the Brown Forest, to reclaim his runaway butt.
(Based on a true story.)
Zack Freeman is ready to tell his story...the story of a brave young boy and his crazy runaway butt. The story of a crack butt-fighting unit called the B-team, a legendary Butt Hunter's formidable daghter, and some of the ugliest and meanest butts ever to roam the face of the Earth. A story of endurance that takes Zack on an epic journey across the Great Windy Desert, through the Brown Forest, and over the Sea of Butts before descending into the heart of an explosive buttcano to confront the biggest, ugliest, and meanest butt of them all!

Griffith's fun gross-out adventure novel follows Zack Freeman, who awakens to see his rear end leaping out the window to lead a bum rally. Zack's butt urges bums to "assume our rightful positions on top of the neck." Zack searches for the "one person who can stop [the plan]," the Bum Hunter, and in the process meets up with legendary bum fighters like the Kisser and the Smacker-plus the Bum Hunter's tough daughter, Eleanor. As the team tries to stop the bums from erupting a disgusting bumcano (hint: it's not filled with lava), they encounter a stink tornado, swimming poopoises, the Stenchgantor, "also known as the Great Unwiped Butt"-and a traitor in their midst. Though Zack finally tells his bum, "Well, maybe if I'd taken better care of you... you might not have gone psycho in the first place," kids will gleefully discover there's no great lesson learned here. Some of Griffith's details are hilarious (a fluffy pink toilet seat cover is the perfect tool for trapping bums, who "are powerless to resist them"), others plain disgusting (Zack and Eleanor hitch a ride on an exploding bum pimple), but young readers will likely get a kick out of it all (there's even a glossary included). Ages 9-up. (Apr.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

In this second installment of Nathan Bransford's zany series, Jacob Wonderbar gets a message that he has been nominated for President of the Universe. His best friends Sarah Daisy and Dexter agree to be his campaign managers, and they head back to space to declare Jacob's candidacy. But politics are dirty, especially in space. The trouble begins before Jacob's campaign has even started and stakes are higher than he imagined: It turns out that the Valkrians (a space faction that loves blowing stuff up) wants to destroy Planet Earth, and the President of the Universe is the only person who can stop them.
