Josh Higgins was a bookish nerd and the perfect target for bullies like Bert Claypool and his gang. Josh's head was filled with stories, stories that won him awards at school. Naturally he was a teacher's pet because they all loved guys like him. Not Bert. When Bert went after him at the mall his kid sister stepped up to the plate to rescue him. "Hey, bug off, slug face!" It was totally embarrassing to have Maggie help him out. Worse yet she yelled at him too. "How come you can write about big brave heroes, but can't act like one!" On the way home after Josh and Maggie kept seeing flashes of blue appearing in the woods. It seemed like there were some blue guys stalking them. What the heck was going on?

It didn't look like a very promising day, but once they got home he had some time to think about his next writing project to enter in the yearly contest. Miss Jordan was counting on him to come up with another winner. "Danger on Yastol" was a huge hit and was an award-winner. Things always seem better after a good night's sleep and Josh only had to put up with his kid sister and her acting group. Maggie was going to ream him out after the rehearsal, but all of a sudden the blue guys showed up. To his surprise they "were tall, flat, and fearless." They weren't there to act in any play and meant business when they asked him to take them to Yastol to mine some aafth. One of them claimed that "We need aafth for our weapons. For our spaceships ... enough to give us power to conquer the galaxy." The unimaginable had come true. Josh's book had turned to reality and he and Maggie were going to be in deep trouble ... in Yastol!

This is an exciting sci fi adventure of Josh, a young writer who suddenly finds himself living in his own book.

Format: Hardcover
A short book full of adventure and intrigue that's sure to captivate all of your reader - like it did mine. It was a great book to while away a rainy afternoon without the help of the tv. The words were easy enough that my eight year old had no problem but the plot was thrilling enough that my teen enjoyed it as well.
