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.

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.
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'.
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...Read more ›
