About the Author

CUTHBERT HUBERT EGBERT SOUP was born, at a very young age, to Filbert and Roberta Soup, in Vienna, Austria. As founder, president, and vice president of the National Center for Unsolicited Advice, he has earned millions by making himself so annoying that people pay him to go away. Dr. Soup is currently working on a Broadway musical performed entirely by sock puppets on ice. He lives with his two pet snails, Gooey and Squishy, and his dog, Kevin, who is neither gooey nor squishy. A Whole Nother Story was his first book, and this is his second. He's decided to make it a good one.

More About the Author

Dr. Cuthbert Soup was born in Vienna, Austria, at the height of the Great Sausage Famine. At twenty-three he dropped out of high school and moved to New York City, where he landed a gig playing elevator music. He was soon fired, however, as his trombone kept smacking other people in the elevator. He is currently the founder and president of the National Center for Unsolicited Advice, where he has served as an unofficial advisor to CEOs and heads of state, and has given countless inspirational lectures to unsuspecting crowds. In his spare time he enjoys cajoling, sneering, and practicing the trombone in crowded areas. Dr. Soup currently resides in a semi-secret location somewhere in the United States. This is his first book.

I first gave this to my 8 year old and he devoured it in one day and then I read it. My son loved it and I know why. First, this book tells a darned good story. We follow a kooky family on a trip into the past. They are trying to break a curse so that they can save their mother who was killed. The story is not at all morose, contains no foul language, and I highly recommend it. Secondly, it is so funny that I became my one of my own pet peeves - a person who insist they read out loud passages from whatever they are reading, and don't care if you are interested. I kept following my husband around reading parts of the book and then laughing like a loon. Being that we got this from the Vine program, we were unaware that is the second book in a series. I will be purchasing the first, and I would recommend you do the same. This book is great for kids as well as adults who still like to pretend they are.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first installment of this series, A Whole Nother Story, is a well received kid's tale of the genius, Ethan Cheeseman, who invented a time machine. The tale ends with them in scary old New England, 340 years ago.

In this second installment, he and his three children have just arrived in the pre-colonial countryside. Although they are coping with the death of their mother (his wife) and repeatedly find themselves in dangerous situations, the author has the family responding with humor and excitement as they move forward in time.

While adults may raise their eyebrows at the fifth grade humor (not crude), the jokes sent my grandson reeling and reading aloud to whomever was in the room. I also liked that the author infused the story with a loving altruism that made the characters both responsible and appealing.

The first installment is available on Kindle for $1.79 so I hope this edition will soon follow suit.

Once again "Dr. Cuthbert Soup" has written a humorous, well thought out piece of literature. If you have any high schoolers looking for a masculine, educationally written book with laugh out loud moments, this would be it. Another Whole Nother Story picks up where the first book left off... adventures in time travel with the hilarious Cheeseman family and their pirate friends. This book is not an easy read and the vocabulary will stretch even a well read high school freshman, but it makes up for its adornment of words through the adventure. Puns, similes, metaphors, and hidden meaning abound in these adventures. Woven by a true master of literature this book is a good reading exercise for adults as well. Sample: "There's no shortage of well-known pirates, including: Henry Morgan, Captain Kidd, Blackbeard, Bluebeard, Yellow Beard, and Yellow Beard with black roots, who surmised that if blondes have more fun, then blond pirates must have a heck of a lot more fun." Dr. Cuthbert Soup must be blond because he has written an extremely fun book.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
"Another Whole Nother Story" continues the saga of the Cheeseman family-- a rather goofy group of Characters, with a capital "C"... if ya know what I mean. In this book they launch themselves back in time to try to return a stolen goblet whose theft has cursed the family. Using their time machine they arrive in America in the 1660's and the usual chaos ensues as they are mistaken for witches and find themselves followed by one of the arch enemies.

THE SKINNY:::
With tons of goofy humor, this book would be a good choice for someone looking for extremely light, humorous fair. A couple of times I laughed to I cried!

I thought the book would do well as a standalone --at least for older YA and Adults -- because the story was pretty much comprised of cliches.

I found the story too shallow to enjoy, and would have given the book 4-Stars if it had been shorter. In places I thought the pacing stuttered to a painfully slow pace for this sort of book.

Suitable for Tweens on up, readers who like this funny/snarky style of writing might want to check out, "Smells Like Dog" -- another lighthearted read; one with more 'story'.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a great book. The story is well written, it's funny, and there is nothing inappropriate within the story that parents need to worry about. Mr. Cheeseman's wife died and he, long with his children- Gerard,Maggie,Jough, and Pinky the hairless fox terrior have climbed in the time travel maching that Mr. Cheeseman built and are going back in time in the hopes of saving Mrs. Cheeseman. The time machine is called the LVR which stands for Luminal Velocity Regulator and is mostly made of used motor home parts. The story is funny and exciting, and interspersed throughout the book is advice on topics such as fighting, body piercing, and crime. These snippets of advice are hysterical. This is a must for the 8-14 age group.

ANOTHER WHOLE NOTHER STORY is the second in a series of books written by (the incomparable) Dr. Cuthbert Soup. I have not read the first, but for the most part, this is a charming, silly, stand-alone novel for preteens. A funny, off-beat adventure, ANOTHER WHOLE NOTHER STORY takes us on a wild ride through time with Dr. Ethan Cheeseman (inventor extraordinaire), his three smart, polite, and relatively odor-free children, a sock puppet named Roy, a psychic dog, and a band of pirates. Their plan is to end a curse, save their mother, and defeat a villain. Of course, everything that can possibly go wrong does. And then there is the biggest question of all: once they go back in time, can they go forward again? Will they ever be able to get home?

ANOTHER WHOLE NOTHER STORY is written in a fast, easy, fluid style perfect for its targeted age group. Rather than laughing out loud, this is a book that will make you smile, with an occasional chuckle and a fit of giggles thrown in. The premise kept me interested, although this is not a page turner. I never felt like I had to stay up all night to finish. But ANOTHER WHOLE NOTHER STORY is cute and fun, and I did start to care about the Cheeseman family and their adventures. Enough so, that I am planning to read the first installment and definitely plan to give future books a chance.

One thing that jumped out at me immediately with ANOTHER WHOLE NOTHER STORY is that that writing style felt VERY familiar. I finally realized that it felt like Lemony Snicket and his Series of Unfortunate Events. VERY like. (The premise of a family on the run is also very similar.) I even did some checking on the internet to see if Mr. Snicket and Dr. Cuthbert were "related," but they do not appear to be. Hmmmm, I wonder...
